Kerala Natanam is a form of spectacular performing art that has been transformed from other art forms into a local expression and attracts people from all walks of life. The first and foremost form of it is Kathakali, but it was far from common man.

With the aim of reviving Indian Classical dance based on Natya Sasthra, the first dance school in Kerala, Sri Chitrodaya Narthakalayam was started in 1937 February under the aegis of Maharaja.Shri Guru Gopinath, the great master of Kerala Natanam was inspired by the contemporary dance artists of the Sri Chitrodaya Narthakalayam, found the necessity to develop a simpler form of dance combining Kathakali and Bharathanatyam and that resulted in the composition of Kerala Natanam.

The mystical beauty of Kerala dance lies in its pulsating combination of dynamic rhythms, enchanting music, characteristic costumes and strange and beautiful movements, denoting tragic victories and liberating defeats beyond the wordly imagination and life. While classical dances are based fully or partially on the principles embodied in the ancient Hindu architecture, sculpture and allied arts, emphasis to theme, song, music, expression of emotion and moods, ornament, make up, costume etc. vary in Kerala Nadanam to comply with the theatre and context it is performed.
