The essence of Indian dance is celebration of spirituality and life.
The traditions of Indian classical dance encompass India’s artistic and aesthetic wealth. The various classical forms do not merely help project and platform a culture, but are an act of propitiation too. The inner spiritual core of a race comes through in its classical arts. These dance forms have withstood imasions and interventions, changes and contradictions and yet continue to shine in their pristine beauty-.
This book presents the complex layers of Indian classical dance traditions in a very simple and easy–to-comprehend manner, so that both the lay reader and the connoisseur may enjoy it and grasp its history and heritage, content and context.
