Arangetram

The only dance you'll have to worry about is the one on the stage.

The word Arangetram is derived from the malayalam word “Arangettam”(Aranga-Stage, Etram-climbing.) Arangetram is the first on-stage performance of a student who studies Indian classical music and dance. It refers to the graduation ceremony where the guru introduces her pupil to the public for the first time.

The Arangetram is not only a platform for the pupil to perform but also a place for recognition of young talent. Organising an Arangetram is no easier than organising a wedding reception. Mainly because, it is not just an art performance but also a large social gathering. Just like a show is only as good as the performer, an event is only as good as the organiser. This is why we’ve built Eventosaur - a one-stop event planning platform. With our numerous event organising experts and a vast network of decorators, caterers, videographers, photographers, and various other service providers, hosting an event with us by your side is as easy as it gets.

The process of planning an arangetram is an elaborate one. It includes a lot of decision-making and running around in the quest for perfection. Right from the decoration of the entrance to the food served at the end of the show, you never want to let your guests down. This is exactly the mindset with which our team at Eventosaur works.

Invitations and Brochures

First impressions are always the ones that last. In the same sense, the invites to your arangetram deserve to be nothing but perfect. There is a lot of effort that goes into designing and printing an invitation. Right from the kind of paper to be used to the design of the invite, every minute detail counts. We at Eventosaur, make this job easy for you. You could select the design of the invite from our catalogue or even customize your own invitation. We also help you with printing arangetram brochures and make sure that there are no delays.

Decorations

Decorations are an essential part of any event. Decorating specifically for an Arangetram takes its own time as it isn’t the same as every other event. The decoration should not be too extravagant, which might steal the focus away from the artist who is performing, but exude the perfect ambiance that will enhance the performance in all ways. Particularly at a Bharathnatyam arangetram, the statue of Nataraja, the god of dance, is a must. We make sure such little details are taken care of. Along with stage decorations, the entrance also needs quite some attention as it should not look like it is a wedding! This is why our team at Eventosaur constantly keeps you in the loop with the decoration process, so that there aren’t any surprises on the day of the performance. We also make sure there is no compromise in the quality of materials used to decorate as we care for your event’s success as much as you do.

Sound and Music

A Carnatic music arangetram requires amazing sound quality with top-notch equipment and recording. Similarly, the role of music in a Bharatnatyam rangapravesam is as important as the role of the dancer itself. The smallest glitch in sound, and the dancer might miss a beat. To prevent such missteps, our team at Eventosaur takes utmost care when it comes to hiring the best sound and music engineers for you. Here as well, the equipment cannot be outdated. This is because many dancers use the audio from the video again to perform elsewhere. We make it our responsibility to deliver the best quality of sound, as promised by our partners. As per your preference, we can also arrange for live musicians or recorded music (in case of a dance performance.)

Makeup

Makeup and hairstyle for a dance arangetram is the most vital part of the performance. Hairstyles for bharatnatyam, kuchupudi, or any dance form, need to be sturdy yet beautiful. The hands of the make up artist need to be as steady as a doctor. Our team at Eventosaur understands that every stroke matters. We realise that the make up for dance takes a minimum of two hours and make sure that the makeup artist is there on time. We do not compromise on the materials used to do the makeup as it could affect the dancers’ skin after it is removed.

Lighting

The importance of lighting in a Bharatanatyam performance is often taken lightly, but not at Eventosaur. We realise that the makeup of the artist is done keeping in mind the lighting of the stage. We make sure our lighting partners do not let you down. The lighting of a dance recital is done by watching and observing the movements of the dancer and this is why our lighting team consults with the artist, as to what kind of lighting they want and when. Be it a spotlight, or a combination of colours.

Master(s) of Ceremony

An arangetram consists of many parts like the Alaripu, Jatiswaram, Varnam, etc.. These items are just names to the laymen in the audience. Someone is required to explain the technicalities in each piece. Thus, hiring a professional emcee to host can keep the event organised. This helps in keeping the audience engaged throughout the performance, which may last up to 3 hours, and not feel left out in between breaks and costume changes.
