Kalanidhi Narayanan on the aspect of mood
In this video, we have for you Kalanidhi Narayanan, noted Bharatanatyam dancer and teacher from India. Here, she draws our attention to the importance of creating the mood for teaching the abhinaya (acting) aspect of Bharatanatyam dance to students. According to her, while listening to a song, the mood or expression of that song will set in her and that’s how she teaches.
