Of the various forms of classical dance in India, Bharata Natyam is believed to be the oldest, because it is the form which is based to the largest extent,on ancient texts on the dance. For centuries it was danced by Devadasis in the temples of south India. Movement, mime and music contribute in equal measureto this beautiful dance from Tamil Nadu. It is a solo, dance which is devotioal in spirit. Highly stylised and sophisticated in its technique, Bharata Natyam is evenly divided between nritta, pure dance, and nritya, expressinal compositions. The songs pertain mostly to the theme of love but not sensual love. These are given an elevated and somewhat spiritual flavour.
