Dance Therapy

While imparting Bharatanatyam training, an unusual stream of students with difficulties inspired different methodologies of working with them. Thus evolved a holistic method in teaching dance as well as dealing and recuperating the hampering areas of difficulties. We work with our patients with regular dance class students and segregate them only for short durations. Teaching Bharatanatyam as taught by our Gurus but modified for particular inflictions helps our patients to progress quickly.

Patients we work with:

  • Children – (ADD, ADHD, Autistic, Spastics with Ataxia type symptoms with hypertonia, tremors, deaf and mute, blind, Equinus difficulty-entailing walking on toes, polio, brain damage leading to muscular difficulties)
  • Adults- (Women going through menopause difficulties, accidents that have resulted in movement difficulties)
