To yquem46: orissa
 
Hello, Patrick!

Thanks for your critique - yes Odissi is remarkably similar to Bharatanatyam. Perhaps the greatest difference lies in the songs of accompaniment...

It's an excellent idea to time your visit with a dance festival, if possible. I've heard a lot about the <a href="http://www.orissatourism.org/orissa-fairs-festivals/puri-beach-festival.html"> Puri Beach Festival</a> and the <a href="http://www.orissatourism.org/orissa-fairs-festivals/konark-dance-festival.html">Konark Dance festival</a>. Both are spectacular displays of Orissa's dance and culture, although I would imagine the Konark festival to be more pictureque - with a 13th century stone temple as a backdrop...

Cheers,
biswaroop
