Unlike ballet, the demi plié of Bharata Natyam is not an intermediary position from which the body moves.

In order to dance professionally, you have to start at a young age. No matter what, your muscle structure and your bones have to be groomed from a very young age. Nobody wakes up at 17 and decides to become a ballet dancer.
