About a week ago, I had the opportunity to shoot the Arangetram of a very talented young Bharatanatyam dancer in Puyallup, WA.
Arangetram is the debut on-stage performance of a Bharatanatyam student. She had learnt Bharatanatyam for the last six years, and after all those hard work, she performed brilliantly on the stage.
We arrived a little early – and I managed to get some of her getting ready shots. She was very confident.
The show lasted a little more than two hours. It was absolutely mesmerizing.
