Odissi – one of the oldest Indian dance forms

This is part of my recent dance show. I am putting it up here because I feel any sort of classical dance deserves as much viewership as a Hip-hop or ballet routine does. Music and dance are wonderful things, and they should not hold one back.

Also, because I like the colours on stage.

This is an Odissi dance called Shankarabharanam Pallavi. Odissi which started in the temples of Orissa with men dancing as women, has now reached across the globe. And yet, the place where it was born – India – remains largely indifferent towards it.
