Dance is a Celebration

Mylapore Gowri Ammal

“Dance in India is a celebration of the body, the mind and the spirit, and in its evolution, it is universal and timeless. Dance is Darshan, a philosophy, a path to attain the seen and the unseen, the tangible and the intangible. It is artistic yoga which reveals the spiritual through the corporeal and aims to transcends the boundaries of time and space.
The artist and the art are inseparable.”

– from ‘Natyanubhava-I Darshan’ a moving documentary and tribute to dance by Sharada Ramanathan
