Rangapravesam, which means “ascending the stage’ in Sanskrit, is a full-length solo dance performance. It marks the transition of the artiste from a student to a blossoming dancer. Accompanied by a live orchestra, this performance demands that the dancer exhibit an understanding of the many aspects of Kuchipudi, from sensitive expressions to intricate rhythm, blending grace and vigor.
We believe an Rangapravesam is symbolic of reaching a level of technical understanding and emotional maturity to become able to begin a professional career in dance. It is the celebration of a young dancer’s commitment to dance. And we make sure that only when a student has reached those levels, are they ready for an Rangapravesam. Some students reach the stage faster than others.
Several of SKN students have performed their rangapravesams, full-length solo recitals, after years of training. At SKN students are provided 1-1 training to develop their core skills and build upon to perfect on every aspect of dance.
Rangapravesam is a commitment for both parents and the student, it takes hundreds of hours of learning, practice and preparation, at our school we strive to make this a memorable experience for the entire family. If you have any question speak to me.
