Dance is the most beautiful and rhythmic form of expression. Dance is a conversation between body and soul and the most effective stress buster in today's stressed life. It is a song of the body in joy or pain. We at Mantras help you to explore your inner ability and passion for this beautiful form irrespective of whether it is Indian Classical form or Western Style. Dance forms an integral part of our activity studio.
It is said that Lord Brahma created the fifth Veda or Pancham Veda for the common people in Kaliyuga from various elements of the four existing Vedas. This was the Natya Veda. He took pathya, the words from the Rigveda, abhinaya from the Yajurveda,
geet and chants from the Samaveda, and Rasa , the emotion from the Atharvaveda to form the fifth Veda, NatyaVeda. He then handed it to Rishi Bharata who wrote the Bharata Natya Shastra which is a treatise on the Indian Classical Dances.
Bharatanatyam originated in the temples of Tamil Nadu and Odissi in Orissa many centuries ago and are known to be the oldest dance forms in the world.
We at Mantras are proud to collaborate with some of the most talented and dedicated gurus of both Bharatanatyam and Odissi.
