Nurturing his Kalashakti through dance : Jeeno Joseph

In this video covered by Huffington Post we get an insight into Jeeno Joseph’s dance journey , an American India Bharatnatyam Dancer. This Dancer Found Inner Peace By Breaking Gender Stereotypes In Indian Dance. He shares “It requires a sense of subtlety. There are no restrictions in Bharatanatyam about the roles that male or female dancers can take on. Each performer is essentially a blank canvas on which any character or story can be painted. That means that male dancers can be tasked with playing Devi, the sum of all manifestations of the mother goddess, while female dancers may portray the valiant and heroic Lord Rama.”
