Mohiniyattam

Mohiniyattam which originated and developed in Kerala is one of the most beautiful Lasya dance forms of India. During the moment of desire of creation, the goddess took the form of Nateshwari /Mohini and danced the ’Sukumara’ graceful (Lasya) dance to attract   Shiva, who is mostly engrossed in deep meditation.

That is the first Lasya dance of Mohini with importance given to Shringara  Rasa, that we can find in the Puranas. The uniqueness of Mohiniyattam is that it still upholds without losing, many of the techniques of the dance style that was being performed since ancient times, mentioned in Puranas that of Adi Bhagavathi for creation of the universe and followed by Maha Vishnu for safeguarding the virtue and ensuring the sustenance of the universe. Natyasastra also says Parvathy is the first danseuse of Lasya. There in lies its importance and relevance.
