Bharatanatyam for Beginners

Bharatanatyam is one of the most loved classical Indian dance forms originating from the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Its history traces back nearly 2000 years. 


The term Bharatanatyam is derived from 3 words: Bhava- which stands for expressions, Raga- meaning music, and Tala - meaning rhythm. 


Bharatanatyam has gone through an interesting journey from being performed at temples as a religious ritual, to being a piece of art showcased 

at theatres. What remains constant is its component of expressive storytelling through intricate footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions.

  • How do you assess if the child is ready to learn Bharatanatyam?
    During the demo class, our instructor makes them do some very basic steps like Thattadavu and Naatadavu. The child will be assessed if they are able to grasp it and follow the instructor. Some basic mudras will be demonstrated to see if they are able to hold them.
  • What is the optimum age for starting to learn Bharatanatyam?
    Age is really not a barrier for Bharathanatyam. However, 5 to 6 years is the suitable age for beginning Bharatanatyam. At Learner Circle, we teach adults too, who want to learn a new hobby or return to their old passion.
  • What are the advantages of starting early?
    Starting early can be very beneficial as the child will develop an interest in Bharatanatyam easily. If they are strong with the basics, it will be a smooth transition to the intermediate level. They can take part in performances in school and other cultural events with the knowledge that is gained. This is very beneficial for eliminating stage fear.
  • Can Bharatanatyam be learnt online?
    It is possible to learn Bharatanatyam through online mode. Our proficient tutors have been imparting Bharatanatyam lessons to students over several years and many students have been performing in international events and stages.
  • What will be the size of the batch, can the instructor focus on each student and give individual attention?
    Learner Circle provides the option of 1:1 classes for interested students. However, in a group class, we take a maximum of 6 students in each batch. Our tutor gives personal attention to each student and makes sure they are able to hold the particular position correctly or perform the mudras precisely. Ample time is given for feedback at the end of each session where doubts are clarified and constructive feedback is given to the students.
  • How do you assess if the child is ready for the next exercise?
    If the child is able to do all the fundamental adavus with perfection we can introduce the next level to the child where they will be learning songs. The child should be able to sit in the Aramandi position
  • Is this type of dance only for girls?
    It is a gender-neutral art and can be learned and performed by both males and females. There are many popular male Bharatanatyam dancers
  • How long does it take to complete the course?
    There is no exact time frame for learning Bharatanatyam. It generally takes 7 to 8 years to learn all the major aspects of Bharatanatyam.
  • How many levels are there in the Bharatanatyam learning program?
    At Learner Circle we have divided the course into 8 to 10 levels.
