Kathakali is the ancient theater form of Kerala. Inspired by Kutiyattam, the Sanskrit drama and Ramanattam Kathakali has come a long way from both of them. Kathakali is one of the rare art forms which includes a diversity of other art forms.

It has music, rhythm, painting, wood carving, carpentry, martial arts and what not! Its a world of diversity!

The first lessons start with foot work, basically stamping the ground in rhythm prompted my the master. Though you might find it a bit tiring on the first day, be assured, you will be carried away by the magic of the body movements, eye exercises and other lessons. Its a rewarding experience to know even a little of this ancient theater form.
