Arangetram-Bharatanatyam (Indian Classical Dance) Graduation Dance Recital

Sunday, August 5


Bharatanatyam is a South Indian Classical dance form, having its roots in the Temples of South India. This dance form dates back to 2nd Century and is known for its rhythmic beauty and lyrical representation of ancient mythological and historical stories. Vibrant costumes, makeup and jewelry highlight the importance of self expression. There is a course and structure in the study of this art and it takes around 8-9 years of training to learn all the aspects.

Arangetram, which literally means stepping on stage, is the graduation recital of the student, in which the performance is in a certain order, exhibiting all the aspects of the dance form and the dancers proficiency in performing it.
