Ananda Shankar Jayant, one of the prominent alumni of Kalakshetra, has come out with a unique, innovative, and imaginative web system titled NATYARAMBHA. Unlike a web class, this will enable every practitioner of Bharatanatyam, irrespective of their style differences to practice, remember and improve their total standard of dancing. The application is very easy for both teachers and students to practice with inspiring musical accompaniments.
I recommend every Bharatanatyam artiste to subscribe to this new innovative and meticulously crafted web system by a stalwart.

With Bharatanatyam now a global form, it is timely for technology to link with art for a larger purpose. From Baku to Barcelona, dancers of all shapes, sizes, nationalities and faiths have embraced Bharatanatyam for its splendour and irresistible charm. Natyarambha creates the platform to synergise practice, knowledge, rehearsal and a sense of community on a global cyber dance class. Congratulations to ANANDA SHANKAR JAYANT, a fearless dreamer, who has conceived this software to unite us all through time and space into remembering that our bodies in constant practice is how we acknowledge this international sorority we call DANCE.
