Dancing times!

5 yrs to pre teens is the best age to pick up dancing. I am really impressed by this video. It is perhaps my first introduction to the Melattur style of Bharathanatyam. I have yet to understand the distinction  from the Thanjavur style apart from  the appealing laasya and full use of body bends. Do I detect some influence of Kuchipudi? Very agile & poised dancer.

Watch 11 yr old Harini Jeevitha’s arangetram clip (2006). She is the disciple of Chennai based Smt. Sheela Unnikrishan (Sri Devi Nrithyalaya)
