Okay, so this post is really personal, but this is something I really wanted to share. Now that my arangetram is over, I’m basically back to my old practice schedule, aside from the extra practices I have for productions with the troupe, which is really pretty neat in itself.
So something kind of interesting is that in my training I’ve learned several padams and thillanas, but somehow a kauthavam got skipped for me, and I just never got around to doing one. However, now I’m learning my very first Kauthavam, at long last!!!! This is super exciting for me!
The song is really gorgeous, and starts out with this long jathi with a great many peacock gestures. It’s a lot of fun!
I guess this has been a little bit of what I’m up to these days – aside from homework and college apps. And I just really wanted to be able to share this new thing that’s so cool to me!
Thank you all so much for all your love and support – we shall meet again next time!
