FOLK DANCE CLUB
The beauty of a nation is in its significantly rich and diverse cultural roots. Traditional music, dance and art forms are what lie at the core of cultural expression. Folk dance amongst other cultural art forms is one of that unifies and entertains the masses of a nation in rhythmatic harmony. Manava Bharati India International provides the platform where students can learn folk dance styles from different cultural backgrounds.
This club not only focuses on dance but also makes the students learn teamwork and cooperation.
Dance is one such motion that needs no reason to be performed. It is an amalgamation of emotions which is conveyed through performer’s expressions and every limb and part of the body. Bharatanatyam is one of the classical dance forms in India, holding a preeminent position which not only provides spiritual satisfaction to the performer but also gives aesthetic experiences to the audience.
If we break BHARATANATYAM we get (BHA which means – Bhava + RA means – Raga + TA means – Tala + NATAYAM means – Dance).
So it’s a dance piece which involves bhava, raga, tala and dance. It is the classical dance form of Tamil Naidu. It feels good to see how science and technology which have made life easy practically in every respect have benefitted the performing arts too.
The dancer does not have to dance on the stone floor any longer since now the stages are provided with smooth wooden floor, sound system is there and through this development it becomes easier for schools to give opportunities to students to learn and develop new art which not only develops their overall personality but also makes them aware about their cultural heritage and the roots they belong to. Our school (Manava Bharati India International School) has opened Bharatanatyam club through which students are getting an opportunity to enrich themselves and learn their cultural art. What is more interesting and surprising is that students are learning this art form with full enthusiasm and passion which is making this club worthwhile.
