  • Bahratnatyam

    Bharatanatyam is an ancient Indian dance form originating in Tamilakam.

    Bharata Natyam (Tamil: பரத நாட்டியம்) is a classical dance form from the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, practiced predominantly in modern times by women. The dance is usually accompanied by classical Carnatic music. It dates back to 1000 B.C.[1] Its inspirations come from the sculptures of the ancient temple of Chidambaram. It was codified and documented as a performing art in the 19th century by four brothers known as the Tanjore Quartet whose musical compositions for dance form the bulk of the Bharata Natya repertoire even today.

    Arangetram

    Arangetram (Tamil: அரங்கேற்றம், Telugu: అరంగేట్రం), is the debut on-stage performance of a Bharatanatyam student, after undertaking years of training.

    In Tamil Aranga means is raised stage and etram means climbing, thus Arangetram literally means climbing the stage or reach the stage, thus it represents the graduation ceremony when the Guru presents his/her pupil to the public. The Kannada word for it is Rangapravesha or simply Pravesha.[1] It traces its origins from the devdasi (temple dancer) tradition.[2] A dancer's dream and ambition. Flawless performance.

    In the South Indian classical dance form, Bharatanatyam, a dancer’s achievements are celebrated through a debut performance, which is known as the arangetram. This tradition, which has the aura of a ceremony, is widely practised in India and is being followed all over the world, including in the UK. Every year up to a hundred such events take place in theatres and community halls in cities around the country.

    Students from all dance backgrounds can benefit from the skills that the arangetram aims to develop: a strong work ethic, hard work and dedication. It also builds upon moral attributes, such as sincerity and loyalty, which benefit all aspects of life. Most importantly, the arangetram emphasises the importance of a professional learning environment, regardless of whether or not the student will become a performer. The skills acquired through the arangetram are transferrable to other lines of work outside of the performing arts.

  • My Family

    Richa Naik
    As I grow up, I realize that growing up in the family has influenced my life in important ways. In fact, I become responsible, skillful and independent. My parents' love and trust on me encourage me to be responsible. I often try my best to be a good daughter of my family.

    My family is always first in any decisions. I want to tribute this event to Lt.Dhirubhai Manibhai Naik. He is an inspiration and motivator for our family. I also want to remember savjikaka at this auspicious event.

    I want to remember all family members and all well wishers at this movement. Everyone has played some role in my achievements. This is the time to say thank you everyone and hope in future also you will support me.

    Hardi Naik
    My Parents & Family have always Supported me. They have guided me in my life. I would heartily thank them Because of them today I am able to perform at a great event of arangetram.

  • My Dreams

       

    I have been stimulating by my dream, from the day I knew why I came into the world to so far and even in future, which makes me different from others. It is a goal, an aim, a direction for my life. It is not strange from outside, but from inside. It is to be a professional artist. I want to be a professional in arts and culture. I want to spread Indian culture worldwide. For me dance is to express what we believe. Any society can be judged by its cultural values and beliefs and we know how rich our culture is. I want to solve the social issues by means of my art.

    What we inherit from our ancestors are wealth, knowledge and dream our ancestors' dream. They devoted themselves to building our society, which was not for themselves but for the descendants. They had viewed it because their society existed some outstanding culture. That's why their society had been developed.
