Bharatanatyam, one of the more popular classical dance forms, is a composite art. Widely practiced in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, it is at once a sensual and divine experience.

The erstwhile princely courts patronised the temples and thus its various traditions, from where the dance form drew its sustenance. Printed Pages: 99 with numerous colour illustrations. 014370

Kuchipudi, from Andhra Pradesh, was originally a dance-drama form. This is the first attempt to demystify the nuances of a form that has always been the preserve of the males. The dramatic content of the form was passed from one generation to the other without any written script. It was only in the last century that pure dance sequences have been culled out to evolve a style that is distinct from the form of the same generic name.
