Bharatanatyam is the oldest classical dance tradition in India. The dance form was prevalent in South India, and several books have codified it, such as the Natya Shastra by Bharata Muni (Sanskrit: भरत मुनि). It is a dance known for its grace, purity, tenderness and sculptural poses. It is often considered to be the mother of all classical dances. Bharatanatyam dance is often paired with Carnatic Music in many languages from the Indian subcontinent.
