Namaskar in Dance

Namaskar is a sanskrit word. Namaskar is done to welcome and greet family,  friends and even strangers. It is a re respectable way of acknowledging  another person.  We express gratitude towards another being for their kindness and help. 

We must always start our dance with namaskar learnt under the able guidance of our gurus. Namaskar may vary from one guru to anotheror even from one style to another. But they all mean the same i.e. asking the universe, almighty and their gurus to bless them. A dancer also exprsess gratitude towards the earth they dance on, musicians for helping thm with tala and ragas. Audience for gracing the occasion with their presence. 

A dancer must always end their riyaaz, rehearsals and dance presentation with a namaskar
