Abstract:In 1958, the Sangeet Natak Akademi organized an All India Dance Seminar in Delhi, where it gave recognition to Odissi as a regional variation of Bharata Natyam, though it was soon realized that this less known dance tradition of Orissa was a district major classical dance form of India. Over the years, thanks to several opportunities of conducting dance-demonstrations of Odissi with gurus and dancers, the author was able to appreciate the form in its totality. The study of the natyashastra treatises was helpful in understanding the shastric character of the dance form. Odissi dance poses have close parallels in sculpture.
