About this event

Abhinaya means "the art of expression". It is a highly specialized component in Indian classical dance forms focusing mainly on expression of dance through the limbs, jewellery and costumes, voice and the face. The use of skilled expression in Bharathanatyam will improve the aesthetic quality of a performance and the viewing of a performance.
