The concern of losing the integrity and purity of the movements of Bharata Natyam(BN),--an East Indian classical dance form, prompted this research. Teaching and archiving for the purpose of preserving Bharata Natyam in the Western hemisphere is the primary purpose of this project. One of the research challenges was to find a medium suitable for the proposed assignment.
The medium had to be technically sophisticated in order to capture and disseminate the essence of Bharata Natyam in its original form. It had be accessible, providing immediate usefulness to the dance community. The most effective method for accomplishing this task was a computerized multimedia environment. Implementing the research goal resulted in the Interactive Multimedia Application for Teaching Adavu in Bharata Natyam.
