Bharatanatyam Dance at Richardson Public Library
Bharatanatyam is one of the most widely practiced forms of classical Indian dance in the world and was recently taught to children and their parents by a local dance company during a special cultural program at the Richardson Public Library.
The dance is thought to be more than 2,000-years-old and is filled with unique moves, bright colors and lots of Indian traditions taught by Krithika Subramanian Mukuknd and her daughters, Laya and Meenu. Mukuknd owns Natyasthalam, a Bharatanatyam School located in north Texas.
“I want it to reach as many people as possible, to show this art, this age-old art which has no language barrier or no religion barrier,” said instructor Mukuknd.
The family visits other libraries and community centers in north Texas, helping bring smiles through a dance filled with history.
