Bharatanatyam is one of the oldest classical Indian dance techniques, renowned for its refinement, finesse and stylisation. In ancient times it was performed in temples as part of religious rituals. Like all Indian dance styles, it is based on principles stated in the Natya Shastra, the oldest text on theatrical theory that has survived until today. Bharatanatyam is characterised by its dynamic rhythm, its rich vocabulary of expressive gestures, its well-defined geometric movements and sculptural poses.

This discipline is also known as ''yoga in motion'' because it requires total knowledge of the psycho-physical structure, as well as concentration and dedication. Some of the main features are: the perfect geometry of body lines, speed and rhythmic richness, combined with an elaborate language of the hands "mudra" and a fine mimicry of the face. Bharata Natyam is a complex and fascinating discipline that gives great energy to the person on his wholeness.
