‘Salangai Puja’ is the ceremony where Students learning Bharathanatyam receive their ankle bells.
This denotes that the student has reached a certain level of proficiency in maintaining rhythm with the feet. As a musician shows
reverence to the musical instrument, the dancer has reverence for the ankle bells, hence the term ‘PUJA’.
