Sudha Seetharaman, shown here representing a strutting peacock, will perform Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical dance form, as part of a program called "Three Dancers," to be held at the Brooklyn Music School next weekend.

Seetharaman, a Fort Greene resident, heads up the 6-year-old Trilok Fusion Arts, the producer of the show. She explains that Bharatanatyam is a dance form "from the south of India. It dates back to the 2nd century BC and at that time was performed inside a temple. Now of course it’s out everywhere."

"It’s a very geometrical, symmetrical, very patterned - but not stiff - dance," Seetharaman said, explaining how it’s different from other types of Indian dance. "It’s more about form and position and balance with the Earth."

Also performing are Sadhana Paranji, demonstrating an exaggerated style of dancing also from southern India called Kuchipudi, and Shila Mehta, who is arriving from Mumbai, India, to perform a style called Kathak, notable for its subtle hand movements and fancy footwork, according to Seetharaman. The performance will be set to live music performed by an Indian classical music ensemble.

"Three Dancers" will be performed at the Brooklyn Music School (126 St. Felix St., auditorium,) July 20 at 8 pm and July 21 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $17 or $23 for performance and the Indian classical dance workshop on July 22 at 3 pm. Call Trilok Fusion Arts at (718) 797-4024 for more information or visit
