Veeranatyam (Lit. dance of the brave) is a vigorous dance performed by the Veeramusti community, who claim to be the descendents of Veerbhadra.

Veerabhadra is known to have been a creation of Lord Siva when he was outraged at the humiliation meted out to Sathi Devi, his first wife. The musical instruments that accompany the dance are Thambura, Soolam, Dolu, Thasha and Veeranam.
