About the Author

S. Divyasena a versatile and accomplished artiste is the founder director, Divyanjali school of classical music and other allied arts. The school has produced striking dancers since its inception through a well formatted syllabus imparting training in theoretical and practical nuances of dance with special focus on laya aspect and abhinaya.

Preface

This book is prepared after analyzing various books on dance theory and practices written by great gurus in this art form. Through this book I would like to give you a brief and consolidated information from various books on dance in a more interesting and simple manner. It is surely beyond the scope of this book to encompass the complete substance of this art form, but still I hope this maiden attempt of mine will surely enlighten a keen interest in this art form to all the upcoming dancers. What I intend doing through the publication of this book is to make the budding dancers understand the greatness of this divine art and inspire them to explore into it further with greater interest.
