Korwe Adavu (utplavana 1 )
Playlist 17 : Repertoire Pushpanjali • 2m 7s
The Korwe adavu is a combination of previously introduced foot and body articulations. It is called a Korvey adavu as it cannot be placed into any specific category. It has a Tattu, naatu, Bramari, Serikal amongst other movements. Some Korwe adavus also use a Kudittam in the feet.
Things to keep in mind:
- Try not to sway from side to side in the initial Tattu.
- As you stretch to the side make sure the opposite elbow doesn't lift up.
- Keep the length from finger tip to the opposite elbow
- Make sure the swastikam is in front and keep the heel up.
- Watch and observe the trajectory of the arms during the jump. One arm goes from the top in SHikara forming an arc and the other goes directly to the side in Pataka.
- Keep shoulders down
