Bharatnayam is poetry in motion. Originated in TamilNadu, it was initially known as sadir(Daasi) attam or the dance of the Devadasis. It has a blend of three components Bhavam, Ragam & Taalam. It was practised in Temples and it fell into disrepute. The form was given a fresh breath of life by Rukmani Devi Arundale.
