DIPLOMA IN BHARATANATYAM:
This Diploma covers the entire field of Bharatanatyam. Right from basic items to the natuvangam and aspects of choreography, this diploma concentrates on a person or dancer- to make him/ her a full- fledged dance performer as well as a choreographer.
As an art includes everything, that is, sculpture, painting, music, theatre and the arts alike, it is very important for a dancer to have knowledge of all the arts. The study of philosophy, aesthetics nurtures his knowledge and maturity. A dancer should be broad minded and always curious to know about other forms of performing arts. Also, a dancer should know the perfect technique and content of his own art.
As Bharatanatyam is a classical dance form it follows certain rules and regulation. It follows the text called ‘Natyashastra’ which was written by Bharatamuni. Ones a dancer knows all these rules, he gets a different point of view to look at any art form. The vision is broadened and you are ready to accept innovations or to innovate yourself.
This particular Diploma gives a chance to the dancers to study the art thoroughly and provides a vision for innovations.
