Most Indian dances are based on the treatise Natyashastra by the sage
Bharata Muni, which explains the Indian art of acting.Maine Tuhjko Dehka Acting or Natya is
a broad concept which encompasses both drama and dance.
The Natya Shastra was written by the sage “Bharata Muni” who, it is
claimed, was directly inspired by GOD Brahma. The Natya Shastra is
incredibly wide in its scope. It consists of minutely detailed precepts for
both playwrights and actors. Bharata describes 15 types of drama
ranging from one to ten acts. In addition, he lays down principles for
stage design, makeup, costume, dance (various movements and
gestures), a theory of aesthetics (rasas and bhavas), acting, directing
and music, each in individual chapter.
Though its main theme is drama, Natyashastra deals with dance also
at considerable length. On one hand, it elaborates various gestures of
hands, and on the other, classifies such gestures and movements as
either graceful or vigorous; the former, defining the ‘lalita’ form of dance
– ‘lasya’; and the latter, its vigorous form ‘tandava’. Dance is classified
under four categories and into four regional varieties.

movements, and as per current trend. Hindi film dance steps are easy
