What is the need of learning Adavu before learning bharatanatyam?

Adavus are the building blocks of many other dances that you will learn in the future. They help you feel the rhythm (tala).During the adavu stage, a dancer learns to keep his/her arms in the correct position, how to sit in good Aramandi, and how to keep a pleasant expression while dancing. If these basics aren't learned during adavus, it can be hard to learn them while doing more advanced repertoire such as Jatiswaram, Varnam, and so on.hope this helps and good luck!
