hello Anjali,
I am great fan of bharatanatyam. I was unable to learn it to my heart's content. I want my son to learn it. people comment that boys who learn bharatanatyam will pick up the grace of the dance and would have feministic behaviors and gestures.Is this true? How can we get rid of these behaviors and gestures and learn bharathanatyam? Please advice.

Hello yes your son can definitely learn. Infact boys are trained differently. Also parents should be on a look out for such traces and immediately correct them. As a teacher I dont recommend my male students to use too much of attami (neck movements). Also they are told to bring out more energy into their Nritta compared to the girls in my class.

Personally, I admire a boy dancing Bharatanatyam. The power with which they can do Nritta is wonderful.
And yes, I think as the boy learns abhinaya deeply, some of the emotions seep into normal day behavior which unfortunately in these days is misconstrued as "feminine".. Like anjali said, correcting from the very beginning can prevent it from happening..
