Meera Bhadresa who completed her A Levels this summer and secured a place to read Dentistry at Cardiff University recently performed her Bharatanatyam Arrangetram.
Long before she joined Colston’s in Year 7 (2004) Meera had begun training in Bharatanatyam (classical Indian Dance).
Bharatanatyam is originally from the State of Tamil Nadu in South India and the art form descends from a composition of words, music, gestures and sentiments derived from each of the four Vedas, the oldest sacred texts of Hinduism
Meera’s Arangetram marked the achievement of 11 years of committed training and comprised 10 individual dances. These showcased Meera’s mastery of precision, agility and elegance as well as extensive use of facial expression depicting the dramatic elements of the story. The narration of Shrimati Megan Lloyd provided a wonderful explanation of the storyline and dramatic content of the individual dancers

Meera’s Arangetram was supported by a large audience of family and friends including many of Meera’s teachers and fellow pupils from Colston’s.
