Sutral Advau Fourth Variation (video)

July 30th, 2009 by Anjali

This step incorporates a number of leg position and movements in it. For example we begin with the Araimandi, move on to the full sitting posture (muzumandi or purna mandala) and finally end in the Stanaka position. Other position used are the prerita and Alidha. The Bols are Tat Tai Tam Dhit Tai Tam which is sung twice on each side.

This is a slightly complicated variation. Take your time and carefully watch each movement. In the video from 2.00 to 2.04 is a Bhramari. Bhramari means turns. This type Bhramari is called Ekapada Bhramari

    i have always been crazy abt bharatanatyam, but never got a chance to learn it under professional guidance. I joined twice for one month each when i was a teen, but couldn’t continue. Now i have a toddler at home and it is not feasible at this point to go out and learn, and in pune where i live i dont have access to a professional teacher too. I love the way u teach and would be extremely elated if i would be able to learn the dance under your guidance, for my contentment. I have participated in semi classical dances all thoughout my academic years. I would be happy to hear from you.

    Hey Lakshmi, thank you. Since you are in India, I would still recommend you to go to a good teacher atleast once a week to learn dance. There are some good teachers in pune like Sucheta Chaphekar, Parimal Phadke, Sashikala Ravi, Suparna Banerji. Just google and you will find their details.
