Mohini Attam

Mohini attam or Mohiniyattam is a traditional dance from South India, specifically from the state of Kerala in India. The dance is characterised by being a solo recital by women dancers. The name of the dance literally means “dance of the enchantress”. Mohiniyattam is actually a drama in dance and verse which depicts the stories of Lord Vishnu who was once disguised as Mohini.
The vocal music of the dance involves chollu which are variations in the rhythmic structures. The dance is performed in a very sensuous manner which is accompanied by the subtle gestures and footwork of the danseuse. The dance also makes great use of Mudras which are the gestural expression of the hand palm and fingers.
