Nritya Laya Darpan Arangetrams

Arangetram or "Maiden Performance" is when a student, after completion of basic training, presents a solo recital beginning with very basic to complicated pieces. This exhibits utmost dedication along with expressions that display maturity in understanding the core meaning of the pieces. The repertoire of the entire Arangetram is called a 'Maargam', which is the path to learning the intricacies of Bharatanatyam as an art form. The dancer is trained to complete the Maargam with minimal breaks showcasing her stamina by dancing for at least two hours.

Dishaa Ramesh marked the very first arangetram for Nritya Laya Darpan. Here are some glimpses of Dishaa as she worked through her journey towards the milestone which was held on 25th Aug, 2018 at Center for Performing Arts, Dublin High School, Dublin, CA
