This product, the first in the series, attempts to document and perpetuate Smt. Rukmini Devi's legacy in a humble manner.

Here video footages of Kalakshetra students practicing in the quiet and verdant ambience of their alma mater, backed by cogent explanations, take us through adavus, mandalas, hasta mudras- both single & double hand gestures. Besides teaching the right method, the students are made aware of the problem areas and provided guidelines as to how to avoid them. We also get to understand how adavus, set in sequential time, can be used in a number of ways within a metrical cycle.

Style of rendering an adavu, placing the toes in a particular way, taking the bend to the maximum extent, stretching the arm to its fullness, the emphasis points, the manner in which you pirouette- all such aspects have been discussed in a comprehensive manner.

A perfect learning tool for those who want to begin from the beginning.

Tha thai thai thath adavu
