ABOUT US

Samarpana, meaning "a divine offering," is a dance school that offers the essence of the ancient art form of Bharathanatyam. The Samarpana Institute was co-founded by Sydney based dance couple, Suresh and Shobana in 2010. At Samarpana, the individuality of each student is nurtured, while they are trained in the intricacies of Bharathanatyam. Students of Samarpana also learn to appreciate the aesthetics and rich cultural heritage of the art form.

What is Bharathanatyam?

Bharathanatyam as it is known today is the oldest classical dance tradition of India dating over 2000 years old.

As per the etymology of the word Bha-ra-tha-natyam, Natyam means dance, while bha comes from Bhava (expression of emotions), ra from raga (melody) and tha from thala (rhythm). So these three are an integral part of this dance form.

Why learn Bharathanatyam? 

Bharathantyam is a highly technical art form, that takes many years to master, however, anyone can train in it and reap the many benefits of this dance. With the regular practice of Bharathantyam, students can develop a healthy body, mind, and spirit. It enhances the body-mind connection through movement, mime and story telling. In Bharathanatyam, every part of the body is utilised in a well-defined and synchronised manner, thus improving balance, coordination, stamina, flexibility, muscle tone, circulation, and memory.  

At Samarpana, our teachers understand the importance of teaching such a technical art form in the correct way, ensuring that students learn how to understand their own bodies and to maintain correct posture while training.

We also provide an engaging and interactive learning environment, so that young students can have fun while developing their technical skills.
