Ballet Flamenco Compared to Bharata Natyam Sara Baras and her company’s Ballet Flamenco, beautifully expressed each dancers strive to convey their dreams. The audience watched how the dancers expressed their passions and emotions through the dance. The program started with a musical performed by a group that consisted of a percussion player, a guitarist, a violinist, and two singers who also clapped and tapped their feet to the rhythm. These musicians impressed me because they performed live through the entire program while the dancers danced to their music. Though they seemed to be competing against each other for the most part, both men and women danced in Ballet Flamenco. The men wore black slacks and a long sleeve dress shirt and some also wore black vests. Women wore more elegant, long, colorful, and sleeveless dresses. The skirt of the dress was wide and flowed when the women spun in circles. They also lifted it up at times, and waved them from side to side. Both men and women also participated in the Bharata Natyam even though at one time, only women called “Devadasis” performed it. The costume in this dance was also elegant and colorful like in the Flamenco. They wore short sleeve, rich silk dresses with an apron in the front. They also wore fine jewelry to add on to the elegant look. A difference in costume is that in Flamenco, dancers wore covered-toe, 1-inch heel
