Nane Raja (Tamil, 1956) – “Aadal Kalai” – A delightful dance where Kamala is "doubled" as a male character in the same frame. I suppose at this time she was referred to as "Kumari Kamala."
Thigambara Samiyar (Tamil, 1950) – “Naathar Mudi” – An interesting dance amidst a desert backdrop with some classical and snake dance influences. Try to ignore the most irritating watermark ever!
Kula Deivam (Tamil, 1956) – Thaaye Yesotha Unthan – Sweet folk dance.
Paarthiban Kanavu (Tamil, 1960) – Anthi Mayanguthadi – Very slow movements in a lush setting. There are two other dances in this film that I’m trying to track down!
Karpukkarasi (Tamil, 1957) – Vizhiyodu Vilaiyadum - A splendid Sai-Subbalakshmi dance with costume changes and mythological enactments and exciting rhythmic flourishes!
Arivali (Tamil, 1963) – Vazhiya Needozhi – A standard and lovely Sayee Subbalakshmi “twin” dance. According to this article from The Hindu, production of Arivaali lasted nine years before its release in 1963, so it’s likely the duo actually danced a few years earlier.
Dr. Savithri (Tamil 1955) – Nayagar Pakshmadi – A slower “twin” dance by the lovely pair!
Chitoor Rani Padmini (Tamil, 1963) – Devi Vithayar Bavani – Around one minute in, Vyjayanthimala makes her appearance and gives a nice, classical-inspired dance performance with her signature touch.
Padmini, Lalitha, or Ragini
Raja Rajan (Tamil, 1958) – Aadum Azhage – Sisters Padmini and Lalitha perform a nice “twin” dance here; sometimes I get confused identifying Ragini and Lalitha, but I will defer to Richard’s ID as he noted in this post about Or Iravu.
Raja Desingu (Tamil, 1960) – Pal Kadal Alaimele – A lovely Padmini dance with lots of mythological imagery. I’m not 100% convinced this is from the 1976 Dasavatharam starring Gemini Ganesan, but it’s hard to find much information since searching is muddled by results on the 2008 film of the same name. Edit: YouTube commenters confirmed for me that this is really from Raja Desingu, not Dasavatharam.
Senthamarai (Tamil, 1962) – Varanam Ayiram – An elaborately-costumed Padmini dances here with various background dancers and mythological themes.
Nalla Theerpu (Tamil, 1959) – Azhagana Maran – A cute classical-based dance by Ragini. She looks so much like Padmini at times, it’s stunning!
Paar Magale Paar (Tamil, 1963) – Vetkama Irukkuthadi – I’m not sure who these young women/ladies are, but the classical practice dance at the beginning was a fabulous find! Though the singing leaves a little to be desired...
