According to an ancient text called “the Vishnu of Harmattora” it is the fulfillment of all desire to venerate God through dance.


The dance pleases the Gods who are themselves supreme dancers. The most famous of them is SCHIVA.


The dancer pays homage to God because everything being a form of theatre, dance is also a prayer.


Dance offers the fullest expression to the cultural life of a people. Foot movement is complicated and an integral part of any Indian dance. It varies to adapt to the movements of the hands "the mudras" which symbolize an emotion or an idea.


  The dance, even if it is popular, is of divine inspiration and
