In Tamil, "Arangam" and "etram" means rising or climbing, thus Arangetram means ascending the stage. It is the first full performance of a student of Bharatanatyam after years of dedicated practice. It refers to the graduation ceremony where the Guru (teacher) proudly introduces the Shishya (disciple) as a full fledged dancer, and the student expresses gratitude to the guru for having imparted this great art form.
