  5. its indeed a n inovative method of teaching dance for distant students like me .eagerly waiting for forth coming lesson.all the best.

    Hi Hrishikesh!
    Thank You.
    This blog asks for a lot of time and effort. I will do my best to take it ahead.

  6. Hi,
    Is there a session on your website where you teach the alaripur ( the 1st dance)?? I have done it before but i just wanted to check on something at the end.

  7. This website does not aim at covering practical aspects other than adavus… at least at this point of time. Meanwhile you may search for alarippu videos in You Tube. There are a lot of videos showing alarippu in different nadais.

  8. Thanks so much…will do.

  9. hello

    This is an amazing website.You are doing an wonderful job! I am kalashetra student and I have been learning dance for over 10 yesr now. I am now married and teaching two kids.

    I was wondering if there is any suggestion for teaching them puspanali .I would like to make them perform on stage.

    What music shall i make them dance to?

    Dear Smitha,
    Santosh and I did a little conference on your query! The Tanjore quartet did not exactly include the Pushpanjali into the Margam repertoire. Pushpanjali gained its entry into the Margam pretty recently. So Kalkashetra students traditionally start their margam from Alaripu!

    As for what music to use, there are various commercial recordings of puspanjali’s like that tho dagatham(famous with vazhuvur schools and also in the CD released by Smt. Priyadarshini Govind for Samskriti series/ Madurai. sri R. Muralidharan cassette), or tham tham tham thangida thaka that to danga thakutha (famous with Sri Dhananjayan students). Both these recordings supposedly end with a Ganesha sloka to! Find the CD and proceed keeping in mind your daughters experience!

    Good Luck!

  10. Accidently i came across this site. Already ur sessions are over. ahether i can get it from this site its self. my sons is learning bharathanatyam.

  11. is it possible to down load the adavu solkattu from esnips. i could only here it.

    Hi Sreekumar!
    I am happy you find this project useful.
    I think esnips dosent allow downloading. I will think of a way of helping you get the mp3s.

  12. Hi!!

    I’m extremely passionate about Bharatanatyam and have been working on developing an online presence that can help students abroad who find it difficult to find a Guru learn and practice. That’s when someone sent me a link to your website.
    Really happy to find someone with a similar thought process, wonder if we could work together coz I would like to help with building out this initiative.

    Good Luck!

    Hi Anagha,
    I am glad you can help. I will contact you through email.
