A classical dance form originating from Kerala in southern India, Mohiniyattam devotes itself to articulating the leela of Vishnu in his Mohini (enchantress) avatar. Like various other dance forms of the subcontinent, Mohiniyattam emerged as a devotional performing art of the temples before gradually spreading far and wide. In this course, Gopika Varma, one of the finest dancers in India, teaches the basic concepts, techniques and subtleties of this enchanting classical dance form. This course is for anyone interested in making a start in learning or even just developing basic appreciation of Mohinyattam.
