There is no fixed number of days, months, or years required to master any form of dance. It varies from person to person. What matters is that how dedicated you are to your art. The more you practice, the closer you get to perfection, but never perfect enough.

But in a year or so, you should learn the basic techniques and develop a style of your own if you dedicate enough time.

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.
