Performance Ready: Chapter 3!

Here is the third and final Chapter in our three-part “Performance Ready,” series about jewelry, costume and the finishing touches.

The purpose of this series was to help dancers and those helping dancers to get ready for a performance. As we have said in various disclaimers, there are different ways of getting ready – this is just one example.

We hope this has been helpful to you and you can feel free to send us questions if you have them at info@dhiranamovement.com.

Oh and here’s the dancer after all three chapters – the finished product! 🙂   These preparations were videotaped right before her Arangetram/Rangapravesham photo session.

      Thanks for the kind words and we are glad that we were able to be helpful to you! A first performance can be scary but you will do great. In terms of tips, its always important and helpful to be prepared. That saying – practice makes perfect, is true! 🙂 Also, once you get on stage do your best and try and enjoy yourself. Remember why you enjoy dancing and share that with the rest of the world. While it is ideal to be technically correct, it can be just as important to show confidence in whatever you are doing. All the best!
