This event is over.


Yuva presents a performance showcasing the beauty of classical Indian dance, themed around movement as rhythm in poetry. The performance begins with a dance set to the jugalbandi (duet) song Laya Kavithai, composed by Karaikudi Mani and T. A. Kaliyamurthy, which shows how beats support music. This song will also help to bring contrast between the dancers adavus (basic steps that exemplify pure dancing) and rasas. 
The next performance is a Mysore Jathi, where the dancers express how one can perform the jathis (beats) with different emotions, known as navarasas in Bharatanatyam. Out of the nine navarasas, Yuva has chosen four predominant emotions of daily lifelove, anger, shantham (peace) and veeram (courage). 


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.  No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
