Chennai, July 09, 2019: A centuries-old dance form that originated from Tamil Nadu, Bharatanatyam is known for its purity, tenderness and sculptural poses. A graceful rendition of movements, this system of dance is recognised worldwide and is considered a cultural jewel in the Indian art traditions. Athma Academy of Dance, an award-winning & inspirational dance school, is all set to celebrate the ‘Salangai Pooja’ of two of its students, Augrima Ghosh and Shipra Sanjay on 14th July 2019.
Salangai Pooja, an ode to the dancing bells, marks an important landmark in the journey of a dancer. Wearing a salangai for the first time, the dancer is tested on his/her initial ability to face an audience, before he/she presents a public performance.
Under the tutelage of seasoned dancers Shri.Madhusudhanan, Smt.Lavanya and Smt. Vaijayanthi, Augrima and Shipra have imbibed the nuances of Bharatanatyam. Though a Bengali, Augrima was enchanted by the mesmerising elegance of this South Indian dance form, thus epitomising the cultural unity that binds this nation.
This auspicious event will take place at Vani Mahal on 14th July 2019 at 10 am.
