One of the main attractions of India is the elegant and mesmerizing Indian dances. Originating over several millennia ago art and today enjoys unchanging popularity in all countries of the world. During the performance of the dance, Hindus improve spiritually, developing your mind and aesthetic senses, improving the artistry and flexibility of the body. Classical Indian dance emphasizes the natural beauty of the dancers, and gives the real enjoyment of the process. Young people will appreciate modern Indian dances, with special dynamics and brightness. nine0003

Indian dance for beginners

You can start learning by choosing the most suitable direction. More often of all, beginners prefer classical Indian dances, which are unusual way combine dance plasticity and grace, acting expressiveness and brightness. All dances of this direction are based on the sacred Hindu dance and music Natyu's style, which includes not only dancing, but also singing, the art of facial expressions. More modern types of Indian dances are also performed by men. nine0003

In Europe, eight styles are classified as classical dances of this direction: Kuchipudi, Kathak, Satria, Mohiniattam, Kathakali, Bharata-natyam, Odissi and Manipuri. Bharata Natyam and Odissi belong to the so-called "dances of liberation souls", in which there are practically no dialogues between dancers, rarely light facial expressions are also used. Kathak is one of the most difficult Indian dances. performed on outstretched legs with varied and rich facial expressions. Each of types of these dances is complex in its own way - even the most demanding student will be able to choose the perfect option for your needs and wishes. nine0003

Features of teaching Indian dances

In order to master these directions perfectly, the dancer must have excellent physical fitness, understand Indian culture and mythology, since initially these dances arose as an addition to religion. Today dance studios offer both classical Indian dance lessons and pursuit of its more modern directions. During training, future dancers master the art of pantomime and expression of emotions, develop artistry and get real pleasure from dancing. nine0003

Let's immediately pour a bucket of water on the heads of those who loudly proclaim that any dance can be learned on their own at home, for example. There is one, but a serious obstacle to such an opportunity - your self-organization. If you are a person who is not able to force yourself to engage systematically, if your hobbies are in most cases fleeting, then you simply cannot do without a coach.

How to start studying

If the first impression you saw live or on TV or the first trial lesson showed you that this is exactly what you would like to do, that it is worth studying and that it is worth studying, then go on there can be two fundamentally different schemes of your actions. nine0003

First. In case of low self-control, it is highly recommended to buy the most expensive subscription to classes in the studio. There is a chance that a large amount of money paid will become exactly the incentive that will make you complete the entire course of classes without missing a single one. Moreover, you should immediately choose the longest subscription. The first one runs out, buy the second, third, etc. There will come a moment when you realize that without Indian dance you simply cannot.

Second. You know what you want and you know that you have enough willpower to master the basics on your own. In this case, you can learn belly dancing on your own, in any case, the basics on the Internet: paid or free. nine0003

In any case, you can first study the information about the dance: when, who, what and how danced. A lot of thematic information today is posted on various Internet resources. Absolutely all Indian films contain a large number of national dances of varying degrees of complexity and skill. In older tapes there are more dances, in recent films it is most often the final song-dance in the style of "Bollywood" - a modernized dance "based on".

There is a lot of printed literature from which you can draw the spirit and basics of technology. From artistic classics, you can plunge into the atmosphere, understand the aesthetics and partly the historical spirit of Indian dances, for example, from I. Efremov's book "The Razor's Edge", which may not teach, but it will awaken interest in Indian culture for sure. nine0003

The modern variety style of Indian dance "Bollywood" can be learned from video lessons by almost everyone, but mastering the dances of the traditional folk school is a long and painstaking work. The folk dance of India is one of the most ancient. They have been performed for about five thousand years. Only the reverent attitude of the Indian people to their traditions made it possible to bring the dance to our days almost unchanged.

For such a rich history, Indian dance has acquired a rich language of gestures and postures. And in order to master the latter, at a certain stage you just need a teacher. The whole philosophy of India is built on a student-teacher tandem, dance is no exception. Moreover, the higher the level of the student, the higher the degree of skill and knowledge of the teacher. nine0003

Therefore, a brief scheme for teaching Indian dances can be conditionally concluded in the following points:

  • Reading about the history, culture, philosophy of India - like it, interested;
  • We watch free video lessons on the Internet, buy paid ones and try it - it's fascinated;
  • We are looking for a dance studio - it turns out;
  • We are looking for a professional coach, we improve the level - we grow.

We repeat the last point, repeat, repeat ... until we move to the next level of mastery, of course, subject to an unbearable desire to practice Indian dances. nine0003

The teacher comes when the student is ready!

Classical dances

Their movements captivate the attention of the audience and subjugate the consciousness, as if transferring them to a world with another dimension, with other colors and divinely sublime images.

Many ancient treatises on dances are known, which "legitimized" its traditions. And yet, they have their own "handwriting". Kathak is popular in northern India, Bharata Natyam in the south, and Odissi in the east. According to the classification of the National Academy of Music, Dance and Drama, there are eight types of classical Indian dances:

  1. Bharata Natyam.
  2. Kathak.
  3. Kathakali.
  4. Kuchipudi.
