Dance is one of the most expressive ways of telling a story and engaging with the audience. And dance, in every region, tells the story of its people. Chennai is no exception. Be it the sculptures embedded in its myriad temple walls, or the multitude of dance schools scattered all over the city, Chennai uses the dance form to present the stories from its life. Story Trails takes you on a journey through Chennai’s amazing dance saga. Learn to interpret stories veiled in the subtlety of the dancer’s stylised eye, foot and hand movements and let loose as a choreographer takes you through dance routines that are almost de rigueur in South Indian Cinema.
