Accompanied by music, dancers demonstrate how movement from the eyes to the toes can illuminate the stories, characters, and rhythms of Bharatanatyam. In addition to learning the technique of mimed storytelling, students learn how to break down the complexity of counts within music, and how to critically listen to poetry that is sung or chanted. In Bharatanatyam, Shiva, Ganesha, Krishna, and other colorful figures from Hindu mythology come to life.
