Traditional Indian dance, in particularly Bharatanatyam and Odissi, as Balasaraswati puts it, is an artistic yoga (natya yoga), for revealing the spiritual through the corporeal. Bharatanatyam is the most widely practised of Indian traditional dances worldwide, as it is the style that most faithfully adheres to the Bible of the traditional Indian dance, the Natya Shastra, and most comrehensively embodies it. It is also the most ancient of all the traditional dance forms in India.
