An Arangetram is the first formal dance presentation of a student to the audience. After undergoing intensive Bharatanatyam training under the guidance of an accomplished guru, this is an auspicious day for both the Guru (teacher) and Shishya (student). It signifies the student’s transition from being a student to a mature and accomplished performer.
