Physical and Mental Health for Indian Classical Dance

Review Article of American Journal of History and Culture Physical & Mental Health for Indian Classical Dance Balaji Deekshitulu P V Homeopathy & Alternative Medicine Physician and Counseling Psychologist, Sri Balaji Homeo Clinic, Tirupati, A.P, India.cell:8885391722 / 7207255557. Dance provides an active, non-competitive form of exercise that has potential positive effects for physical health as well as mental and emotional wellbeing. Dance therapy is based on the idea that body and mind are co-relational. The therapeutic approaches with various forms of Indian dances are a new entrant to dance literature. Ayurveda held dance as a power of healing (therapy) and inner awareness (psychology). Indian philosophy also supports the facts of Sangeet (song, dance and music) for benefit of human health physically as well as mentally. The powerful dance form of Bhangra (Punjab), Karagam (Tamilnadu), Chou, Rayabese, Dhali (West Bengal) gives good health and strength. The fast footwork of Kathak dance helps to release anger and tension. Manipuri dancers make rounded movements and avoid any jerks, sharp edges or straight lines. It gives them undulating and soft appearance, proper body control and peace of mind. All these body movements, body balancing, expression, muscle movement, muscle constriction and relaxation have a strong effect on therapeutic movements. In India today the dance therapists are conscious about this matter and in therapeutic sessions they actually improvise different dance movements according to the need.

England is a country of colonizers. Unlike Australia and Bangladesh are the countries of colonized inhabitants.
