I was learning bharatanatyam until a few years ago and I am now reconsidering to start again. But before that, I thought I should refresh myself to what I had learned. However, I do not know what style the teacher had followed. :? :shock: :!:

Is It possible to find out what style one belongs to by just listening to the thala or is it the same for all the styles? :?:

There are many styles like Pandanalur, Vazhavoor, Tanjaore, kalakshetra . Differences can be seen in the way certain adavus are delivered.
More observation of the dancers from different styles can help you distinguish them.

One difference is the theermana adavu used by different styles of dancers.
Mysore style uses hastas alapadma, katakamukha and alapadma in a diagonal
Pandhanalur uses hastas pataka, alapadma and katakamukha in a diagonal
Kalaakshetra uses either hastas, but it is brought over the head.
I'm not sure of the rest, but the tala/raga is the same regardless of the stlye as it relies on
Carnatic music.
