What are the differences between Kathakali and Mohiniyattam?
wondering to know about the difference between the two great dances Kathakali and Mohiniyattam? let us have a look here to know about this from our ISC experts.
Although I don't get enough chance, whenever I see various classical and folk dance forms of India, I become spell-bound by the movements of hands and feet and the facial and eye expressions of the artists. Since my childhood, I have heard that Kathakali and Mohiniyattam are two classical dance forms originated from Kerala. Now I would like to know the following:-
(a) What are the major differences between Kathakali and Mohiniyattam? One is that the Kathakali dancers use masks, but there is no concept of masks in Mohiniyattam. What are the other differences?
(b) Are there reputed and trusted dance institutes/teacher of these two dance forms in Delhi? Do these institutes/teachers teach these dance forms to non-Malayali students?
