Abhinaya Dance Academy presents the graduation performance by its final year students in an authentic Arangetram:  Following years of intense training, each dancer must demonstrate she is able to convey every one of the Bharatanatyam moves and expressions she has learned. 

This is the first time in Scotland that Arangetram in its pure form has been performed.  This classical tradition calls for live music, so skilled musicians from Glasgow, London and India will accompany these honours graduands.

The stunning production will showcase the art form, history and cultural values of Bharatanatyam - a major form of Indian classical dance – reflecting  2000 years of  tradition. 


ACCESS: Performance is captioned. Highly visual, with no or little text.
Especially suitable for Subpacs. To request a Subpac, please email tramwayboxoffice@glasgowlife.org.uk

Suitable for all ages

Running time: 3 hours 

Performers have been led and trained by Smt Esther Sunija Binu under the tutelage of dance guru and Nattuvanar Shri Sajilal Narayanan in India.

Funded and supported by Creative Scotland, CBFS , Abhinaya Dance Academy, Whitebridge Financial Services, Tramway, The Work Room, Dupont Associates and Gilbrot Accountancy.
