Mohiniyattam dance form originated from Kerala, India it’s a traditional dance form. Although its roots date back to the age-old Sanskrit Hindu text on performing arts called ‘Natya Shastra’, similar to other Indian classical dance forms, Mohiniattam adheres to the Lasya type that showcases a more graceful, gentle and feminine form of dancing.Mohiniyattam dance form developed originally in which state?

The term Mohiniyattam is taken from the word Mohini who was actually a female avatar of Lord Vishnu. It’s a solo dance which is performed by a female dancer.

"It became further as a performing art during the 18th and 19th centuries"
