Karana is a reconstructed style of classical Indian dance. Karana is a (Sanskrit) verbal noun, meaning 'doing.' The style was reconstructed by Padma Subrahmanyam and others since the 1960s, from 108 brief movement phrases utilizing specific leg, hip, body, and arm movements accompanied by hasta mudras described in the Natya Shastra, and from depictions of the movements in sculpture in five South Indian temples, notably the Chidambaram temple which contains depictions of the full set.
