Natya Presents:
Malini Patel’s Arangetram

An arangetram, literally meaning ‘ascending the stage,’ is a stepping stone in a student’s study of Bharatanatyam. It marks the completion of the initial training of the student and one’s blossoming into a dancer. Join us in celebrating the artistic accomplishments of our senior students at their arangetrams this summer! All performances open to the public.

Natya Dance Theatre and Sunita and Nayan Patel request the honor of your presence and blessings at the Bharatanatyam Arangetram (South Indian classical dance debut) of their daughter Malini Patel, disciple of Smt. Hema Rajagopalan and Smt. Krithika Rajagopalan (Artistic Director and Co-Artistic Director of Natya Dance Theatre).

Seating begins at 3:30pm.

Free performance open to the public.
