    “LOVE FOR INDIAN ART..”

    Over the last few years, Indian classical dance has found a growing tribe of foreign disciples – Russians, Americans, Japanese, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Russia, Italy and America. Dance forms like Mohiniyattam, Kathak, Odissi, Bharatanatyam and Chhau offer a form of spiritual emancipation, with its emphasis on creative freedom and the chance to express themselves through such nuanced physical language.

    Although many are professional dancers, there are some who don’t have any dance background, like Alejandra a architect from Colombia (Central America) she was in  love with india, she was already  practicing yoga  since past  4years ,this time she wanted to give a try with a new  New art form  and it was Bharatanatyam  as she wanted to experiment with this form of Dance.

    The Indian classical dances require in depth knowledge and foreigners often do not do justice to these, “Though I admire their desire to learn something which is so alien to their culture, I have not considered taking foreign students… When you teach Indian students, there are several reference points. For instance, you don’t have to teach an Indian how to say ‘om’ to get the exact vibration, but with a foreign student you have to start right from the scratch.  Within 15days Alejandra covered all the basic steps and she  also learnt a  piece of  Krithi            ( Srimannarayana). Her  dedication towards learning the Indian art inspires.
