Season of dance

A SEASON of dance. That is what the project is all about, and raising it to heavenly levels, the producers, Krishnaswamy Associates have called it ``When the Gods Dance''.

From February 1, DD's foray into culture, Bharati, started telecast of the first capsule of the 33-episode programme originally produced by Mohana for Singapore TV 12. The individual capsules feature a variety of dance forms, including Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Odissi and Manipuri.

Some leading names in the dance styles are to be seen on screen _ including Padma Subrahmanyam, the Dhananjayans, Leela Samson, Chitra Visweswaran, Anita Ratnam, and the directors of the serial, Lata and Gita.

For those who want to go folk, there are dancers from ``Gujarat to Nagaland, Punjab to Tamil Nadu'', says S. Krishnaswamy. Tune in at 8 p.m.
