The feet articulation vary in varieties of Pakkadavus. The arms can also be changed and expand to include a number of different types. The Raadha Kalpa method has chosen a specific combination of feet articulation and arm movement to allow the dancer to be able to adapt and vary in choreography as necessary. The arm and feet need not do the exact same thing when placed in choreography. The progression is made such that the dancer can adopt variety while being specific and articulate with feet and arms.
