Summary This beautiful film introduces one to the Bharata Natyam dance, a classical Hindu dance form which originated thousands of years ago with the legends of Shiva and Parvati. The divine origins of the dance is described in ancient Sanskrit texts. In the film we watch a novice learn from well-known artist Priyamvada Sankar, one of the most respected masters of classical south Indian dance. Interwoven with the performance are explanations of the history and tradition of this art form to place it in its cultural context. This colorful film conveys the spirituality of Bharata Natyam dance
