My Salangai Puja

As some of you might know, I have been studying Bharata Natyam for 10 years now.

So now my teacher decided that I was ready to receive my ankle bells - and this being an old traditional Indian dance art, of course we made a big event out of it. I rented a small theater and invited everybody around me (it is customary that the spectators don’t pay for the entrance as it’s my gift to them and the dance).

There were 6 dances of totally about 42 minutes.

Of course there were some parts where I messed up and I still have to work on the technique but I have many more years for that.
