A glimpse into the Bharatanatyam performance at Chandramouleshwar Mahadev Mandir, Hadapsar.

It’s always a pleasure to perform for Lord Shiva, the Lord of Dance. My teacher, Mrs Rajashree Khare and her students, got this beautiful opportunity to perform a Bharatanatyam dance recital as an  offering to Chandramouleshwar Mahadeva. Here is a glimpse into the evening.

The evening began with Natesha Vandana.

Mrs Rajashree Khare, a senior disciple of Guru Swati Datar, beautifully interlaced the pure Nritta and Nritya aspects of Bharatanatyam in the half an hour of performance at Chandramouleshwar temple. The performances for the evening began with a  Ganesh Kautukam performed by Mrs. Rajashree Khare. It was an excellent amalgamation of fine padanyas (footwork), sculpturesque Karnas (Poses) and mesmerising Bhavas (expressions). This Ganesha Kautukam set the tone for the evening which saw four performances.

The next performance was Tishra Alarippu, a pure Nritta performance, performed by students of Mrs. Rajashree Khare. It was a  wonderful presentation in Naatai raag, which brought forth the subtle, crisp and agile moves, emulating the movements of a blooming lotus flower.

Energetic footwork and graceful postures marked the next performance, Natesha Kautukam in Raag – Hansadhwani, Taal – Adi. The calm Shiv Prarthana Shloka at the beginning of Natesha Kautukam set a peaceful tone. The effortless shift between Nritya and Nritta, along with wonderful formations appealed to the senses of the audience.

The next performance, Shiv Tandav Stotram composed by Lankadhipati Ravan, was savoured by the entire audience. The choreography took the audience from one frame to the other, depicting Lord Shiva and his beautiful form. This highly energetic and moving performance by Mrs. Rajashree Khare and her students brought the curtains down for the evening.

Mrs Rajashree Khare  believes in nurturing this traditional art and keeping it in pristine form for future generations. For her, teaching is a two-way process as she learns while she teaches. She feels, dance is an intense feeling of joy and happiness. These feelings find ample of space in her choreography, both nritya and nritta.
