The recital opens with the alarippu which is an invocation sequence set to the beat of a drum known as the mridangam. Through simple movements the dancer constructs rhythmical patterns. The basic and most significant movements are presented in an ascending order quite like the introduction of the chief notes on the melodic scale. The dancer begins with the point of perfect equilibrium sambhanga and remains standing. The movements of the neck shoulder and arms are then introduced following which the dancer moves into the ardhamandali position. The movements of all the major and minor limbs are executed in a simple form and this sequence can perhaps be described as a warm up to the main performance. The central theme for this sequence is a salutation to the God of Dance.
