This is a collection of 28 asamyukta hasta mudras (single hand gestures) from the Indian classical dance of Bharatanatyam.

The use of fingers and hands to communicate meaning, tell stories, and create delicate shapes is crucial to Indian dance. It is what makes the poetry of Indian Dance so unique and exquisite.

Founded by Sangita Shresthova, Bollynatyam® takes a historically and culturally sensitive approach to contemporary Indian and South Asian dance. Our teaching and choreography draws on classical Indian dance (Bharatanatyam), martial arts, contemporary movement, and Bollywood dance.
