Hello everyone, I am doing a project for school focusing on Bharatanatyam and I was wondering if anyone could help me out by answering a few questions. This project is for an anthropology course I am taking. The focus is on family involvement and roles with this type of dance when it comes to learning and performing. I wonder if anyone would be able to help me out with some input about this, whether there are certain roles certain people play in general, or possibly if anyone is willing to share some of their experiences. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Cami

A little bit late with this one but....

I 'did' Bharatanatyam in the 90s for 6 & a half years in the UK, privately. My teacher, Sheila Cove/Shakuntala, was trained in the early 70s by Smt Balasundari who was a classmate of the world famous Dhananjayans of Chennai school Bharatakalanjali at Kalakshetra.
I'm not of Indian origin, BTW.

To answer a question, I've never known a person 'only' do a certain type of role exclusively as we're supposed to do ALL roles. Some may & have a family connection to this much as Kuchipudi & Kathakali seem to but I've seen most dancers do all kinds of characters as BN used to be a solo dance form in the temples of south India.

Hope I've been a bit of help. Feel free to ask any more questions.
I stopped because my teacher moved away from the north west of England to the south west.
