Bharatanatyam is a Sacred Indian Dance. It is an embodied expression of love and devotion for the divine. For 2,000 years these dances have been given as worship (puja). This embodied prayer is a shared communion between the dancer, the witness and the Divine. It is a powerful, deep and beautifully balanced celebration of body, mind and spirit.

The Koothambalam School of bharatanatyam gives students and audiences the opportunity to witness and study this legendary Sacred Temple Dance while honoring the original purity and depth of this ancient tradition. These dances posses the unique ability to stir the spirit, excite the mind, reveal truth and celebrate the divine.

Laurissa Vibhuti maintains the school in Longmont, Colorado in honor and memory of Dance Master Srimati Shyamala of Chennai, India. Shyamala was a profoundly gifted teacher and performer of the T. Balasaraswati Style of bharatanatyam.

The Dancers of The Koothambalam School invite you to further explore this sacred dance.
