Some random thoughts on what music means to me while dancing


The chime of bells, I feel in my smile,

The dham of the mridangam is my heartbeat,

The staccato of the natuvangam, my calling into bliss,


The flute breathes stillness into my mind,

The violin flows into me, bringing lasya to my limbs,

The ragam creates emotion resonating through to my fingertips,


All sounds work as one… gathering my wandering self and focusing my energies onto one all-encompassing point…



About Sharmini

I am a dancer in my feet, my eyes, my mind, my fingers and my very soul... My wish is to share my love for Bharathanatyam with the world. I want to share the feeling of joy dance gives me, the feeling of being connected to something that is so much bigger than me. I feel humbled to be allowed the gift of dance. My dance experience is not mine... it is a blessing from God that I will cherish forever. My dance school and my blog are my ways of sharing this blessing and of giving thanks for this beautiful gift. I am eager to speak to other dancers and share knowledge and experiences. I have much to learn and would love to network with other people who are also passionate about dance.
