Submission to Cinema Out of Your Backpack
In the era of globalization, where most people are involved in the process of westernization of cultures, languages and habits, still there are some people who are trying to go upstream.
Bharatanatyam, the most important Indian traditional dance, is not easy to learn and practice correctly. This dance, like other typical Indian arts, must be taught in a traditional way. Only the faithfulness to the Guru (teacher) and the total commitment of the students to her give the right way to discover Bharatanatyam.
In this document I am going to tell, in a neutral way, with a natural speed, the experiences and life of some Swiss girls who are learning the dance from their Guru Mrs. Vijaya Rao.
