Join us in the Museum for a special dance performance from Eyakkam Dance Company.
Bharatanatyam is a 2200-year-old classical dance form from southern India. It infuses abstract dance with facial expressions and body language to depict tales and stories of the mortals and the immortals. Dr. Prathiba Natesan Batley is a 3-time national champion of this dance form. She will present an introduction to the dance form through performance, lecture, and practical experience involving the audience.
