Namaste,

Does anyone know how to wear sari for Bharatanatyam practice? I spent so much time online looking for tutrials, but nothing came up. My dance teacher doesn't seem to know.

Thank you,

Surapsari

Namaste,

The practice saree in worn in the same way as the normal saree. The practice saree is shorter in width than a regular saree. So when you drape it stays just below your knees. Only modification needed is that you have to keep the Pallu longer so that you can wrap around your waist once. Hence take lesser pleats at the centre.

Thank you, Anjali. You saved my day! Now I can go ahead with purchasing a practice saree that I have my eye on.

By the way, what is the correct way to spell saree? You spelled saree, but I have seen other spellings including sari.

Thank you again,

Sari
