Dance - Kolattam

The Kolattams are the dances of ribbons, braids and sticks. It is related to goaf Gunthan dances in the context of Maharashtra. In Tamilnadu, terms are of many types and varieties each of these has its counterpart in the adjoining state of Andhra Pradesh Kerala and Karnataka. The distinguishing feature of the dancers is the rope ribbon or strings which are tied to central wooden blocks and hung from the top. The speaks which are held in one hand of the dancers the name-caller term is derived from coal meaning a small sticks and atom means play original ( like the maypole dance dances of the flagstaff Jarjara and the Indra- maha circular dances described in the Harivamsa). The Kolattams were also fertility dancers the original symbolism was supreme with myth and legend when they were supposed to represent with the tree of the gods over the demon Bhasmasur. The agricultural rights connected with paddy gave it a new dimension. The dance was until recently perform only around October November in the month of Kartik are beginning with the north Indian Diwali day and ending on the full moon day. Today it has become a simple social entertainment where young girls perform a collective dance of brightening and brightening ribbons without the preceding and the concluding ritual connected with either agriculture rights or the worship of bus Vah or symbolism of the movement of the planets.

 

The dance connects to the Pineal Kolattam has many standard features with the Kummi Dance the one hand and some walking step of Bharatanatyam on the other. The dancers hardly ever replace their to first on the ground while walking. It is instead a hill placing as in Bharatanatyam the trees jerks the treatment of the torso and shoulders are all the everyday vocabulary of dances of Tamilnadu at all levels whether tribal village or folk in the geographical pattern the Kolattams present a dexterous design of rows followed by diagonals, semicircles and circles. While each dancer holds one end of the strings in one hand, she has a small stick in the other like the Garba and the risk of Saurashtra in Gujarat there is a simple scope here for the pairing of group info and circles and semicircles. Precision and agility are the keynote of these Kolattams as in the bamboo dance of the Mizos. The slightest mistake can completely upset the waving of the braid strings which hang from the roof. The musical accompaniment comprises the singing of a whole song that is the Pallavi Anu Pallavi and Charanam of Carnatic music.

Bharatnatyam is one of the traditional dance of India. It is more important to give respect and protect it's worth. Because it provides our traditional, ancient myths and prospects. It inculcates discipline to our mind and soul also of course to our body as a whole. A beautiful exercise obviously. At most a language of prayer to the supreme Lord of the universe to show our bhakti towards Lord. Kids, adults, elders all can learn Bharatnatyam and deserve its power.

Hi, Most of us are not much aware about Partner Dances, when we see any 2 people dancing together we say they're dancing Salsa.

but that's not true, there are several forms of Partner Dances, let me name a few like Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Jive, Waltz, Foxtort, tango and many more. 

Now you will say all are Partner dances, what's the difference? 

The difference is in the structure, their form, their origin & the style of dancing. A very basic example, In salsa there are lot of spins, in dominican bachata lot of footwork, while kizomba is more about natural hip movements (called Ginga in their language).

Also, a very important difference is that some of the dance forms will be slightly easier to learn than others.

Now, Let me tell you what's more important is that what do you conenct with? Every Individual is different & carry their own personality, say you may have heard of Jive, & join a jive calss, however you may or may not connect with that dance form much. That doesn't mean you will not connect with any other forms of Partner Dances, because Jive is full of Energy, has lot of Bounce & needs some good amount of strength in your arms. While same person may love to Dance Kizomba which is as realxing as the girl can sleep in the partner's arms while dancing. (Pardon me for Exaggerating a bit more). 

So, all we say is keep learning & exploring! 

It can also happen you gave an attempt to learn Salsa earlier but it didn't work, maybe it could be the instructor or the institute who couldn't help you find what's missing or what's going wrong. Keep exploring as we say it is an extremely beautiful expereince for two people to move in sync with each other.


Is it necessary to Dance only with your Partner?

Hello everyone,
Hope you are doing well!
Well, I have a basic concern for musicality. Dance is enhancing day by day, but musicality level is a little bit low. So try to use heavy strength songs and listen to it at least a 100 times minimum before making any choreography.

There are many different layers in music like base, upper and middle so if you are making any choreography, try to catch all the layers with there strengths.
