The dance that touches the soul of oneselves

I’m learning this beautiful dance form called Bharathanatyam since I’ve been 3 years old. I could never understand or define what Bharathanatyam did to me. Many students of our danceclass told me, that dance helped them escaping from their problems. It was a positive deflection from the real world. They found inner peace and happiness in dance. But for me, dance has never been a diversion. I remember those days where I was so unhappy with my life situation and a dark cloud was around me for weeks and absorbed every positive type of energy impulse from my soul so that I was trapped in my own darkness. I tried to dance a lot in those times but I still couldn’t find a positive path. In the opposite - you could really see the pain in my heart and the tears in my eyes while I was dancing a varnam or worst - a bhavam piece. 

The end of the year 2017 was the period of perceptions. I finally realised what dance meant to me. It doesn’t heal my soul but rather It reflects the inner truth of my spirit. Only when this awareness came up I internally understand the quote 
„Dance is the hidden language of your soul and body.“
