Activities of John Holiday Home
Bharatanatyam is a classical dance form originating in South India, nowadays practiced by predominantly young females and women. It is held as the national dance of India. The dance is accompanied by the classical Carnatic music. It has its inspirations from the sculptures of the ancient temple of Chidambaram.
Kathakali is a highly stylized classical Indian dance-drama noted for the attractive make-up of characters, elaborate costumes, detailed gestures and well-defined body movements presented in tune with the anchor playback music and complementary percussion. Kathakali originated from a precursor dance-drama form called Ramanattam and owes it share of techniques also to Krishnanattam.
