I had the pleasure to watch Miss Vanya Verma, a 13-year-old girl from India living in Ipoh (Malaysia), at her Bharatanatya Arangetram. Bharatanatya Arangetram is loosely translated as the ascension to the stage in the Bharatanatya dance form.

Since this was a graduation dance (Arangetram), it means Vanya has already mastered all elements of the dance form, Bharatanatyam, one of eight classical dance forms of India. In such a full repertoire solo debut performance with live music ensemble, Vanya’s performance was dedicated to Lord Shiva (the Lord of Dance), her Guru and the audience.
