Adavu (The initial steps)

June 18th, 2007 by Anjali

Bharatanatyam blogger Shreenidhi has a posting on Adavu positions. The basic positions described are:

  1. ARAIMANDI Half Seated Position.
  2. SAMAPADAM Legs Together
  3. MANDI Full Seated Position

The positions “Araimandi” is synonymous with “Ardhamandal” and “Samapadam” is synonymous with “Sama” mentioned in my “Day – 1” posting.
