A Dancer Emerges

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.

Several of Sarada’s students have performed their rangapravesams, full-length solo recitals, after years of training.

Suravi Sircar

Suravi Sircar performed her rangapravesam in August 2004, after her high school graduation. She has also performed at cultural events held by various Richmond-based Indian cultural organizations and the Festival of India as well as at the Virginia Dance Festival.
