Trisha Hegde Presents Arangetram

Bharata Natyam is one of the eight major classical dance forms, which originated in south India. It has three main aspectsNatya, the dramatic element where the dancer tells a story and expresses various sentiments using a very subtle facial expressions and hand gestures, Nrtta, the abstract dance aspect where the choreography is complex, precise and often very rhythmic – but with no symbolic meaning, and Nritya which employs both dance and drama to emphasize the meaning of the lyric and mood in the music.  
 "Arangetram" is the name given within the South Indian dance tradition Bharatanatyam to a dancer's debut performance. The word comes from two Tamil words: Arangam and Erru, which together mean "to ascend the stage". There are equivalents for the other classical Indian dance traditions - for example, the rangapravesh for Kathak or a rangmanchpravesh for Odissi, but the practice is most established and most popular in connection with bharatanatyam.  
Trisha Hegde daughter of Smt.Sunita and Shri Nityanand Hegde presented her Arangetram on 18th July 2009 at Terapant Bhavan Thakur Complex, Kandivali, and Mumbai.
Trisha has undergone training in the ancient and revered form of Bharatanatyam under the guidance of Guru Smt. Revathi Srinivasraghavan. She has completed her Madhyama Pratham exams conducted by ABGMV with distinction. Tirsha is presently studying in IX standard.

Trisha performed nine dance pieces depicting the range of Bharatanatyam repertoire, incorporating three elements of Natya, Nritta and Nritya. The accompanying orchestra featured Nattuvangam & Choreography Smt.Revathi Srinivasraghavan, Vocal Shri.Shivaprasad, Mridangam Shri.Satish Krishnamurthi, Violin Shri.B.Anantharaman and Flute Shri.Balachander.
Trisha displayed her mastery of the nine traditional Arangetram pieces, with her lively footwork and enchanting poses. The music which flowed in a rhythmic manner changing ragas to suit different aspects of the dance added to the beauty of Trisha’s performance.
The audience watched Trisha’s performance with growing wonder at her skill, stamina, and immersion in the spirit of the dance.
 The music was rich and melodious and left a deep impact on the audience.
