Diploma Course in Classical Dance (Bharatnatyam) - Bharatanatyam was the dance technique in India which evolved in the South of India in Tamil Nadu and practiced in the temples of Shiva. For many centuries Bharatanatyam has been performed only by certain families in the district of Tanjore, these inheritors of the craft being known as 'Nattuvans'. The chief exponents of this particular dance were the Devadasis or temple dancers. They would perform the dance daily at the time of worship or on festive occasions. It came to be patronized by the Rajas and princes. In course of time Devadasis started dancing in the royal courts and thus its religious sanctity was lost.
