Dancing Stories

A dance speaks much without words.

A look, a stance, a tug, a step

There is energy playing in every move.

And energy speaks without words.

Every dancer creates energy.

Movements convey in the emoting.

The essence of the moves.

For every dance has a story!

Jive Dance Workshops



Hi all,
To all my dear readers  followers and friends.

I will be conducting the Weekend Dance workshops series begining this October 2019 @Pune India . Will be kicking off with the  Jive Basics & Beyond Workshop starting  this Sat and Sun  19th and 20 th Oct.
 
No  prior dance experience  is required  for this workshop.


Dancing the Jive is one of my personal  favorites. And yes this music makes you feel happy and alive. 
You can’t help feeling great!

What it entails.

The course is spread over two days .
Focus will be of course be building on basics of the Dance and partnering skills .
Beyond the basics we will also be focusing on tips and tricks to make your dancing not only easy  but enjoyable for you as well as your partner .

Every dance style  has a special  effect   on us as dancers and  this dance  worshop will certainly keep you  happily dancing.

If you are a beginner and want to learn to dance the basics and get dancing confidently on the floor this is just right you.
If you are a solo dancer but would like to learn  to  dance  with a partner  this is just perfect  for you.

If you are the kind who sits out at parties  for the fear of not knowing  how to dance,  may be this simplifies it all!
If  you are looking to put on your dancing  shoes and dance your heart out… Make sure you are there.

If you are looking to brush up your concepts and  skills, this  would be just right for you too.
Age is no bar to learn to dance.

Dancing  is not just about the steps or how you dance but how you feel and how you make another feel  as you dance.

So put on your dancing shoes and let’s  meet on the dance floor!💃🙂💃

Savvy
Ps. If you are looking to have a session  at your city in a new  venue
Kindly connect and we can also create and conduct special group dance workshops.

A Connected Life

This year I celebrate my five years of being and serving as a Member of International Dance Council UNESCO

Sharing a note I wrote 5 years ago…

Honoured to be nominated as an official Member of the International Council of Dance UNESCO. It’s the official umbrella organization for all forms of dance in all countries of the world. Its members are the most prominent federations, associations, schools, companies and individuals in over170 countries.

Have to certainly add that back in the 1960’s it was a visiting delegation from UN that had come to India who had got my dear father interested in learning these International Dances and later on teaching these dances as a hobby and now after all these years as his daughter, to have been certified by CID UNESCO I am touched indeed to say the least.

Thank you Dad for sharing with me this Magic of Dance. I am truly grateful that our simple dream of sharing the joy of Dancing by not only training people to dance but also specialising in applications of dance in holistic wellbeing through Dance Concepts, has been nominated to join UNESCO CID.

It surely connects the dots into a beautiful circle.

The prospect of working under the guidance of this phenomenal institution gives one unbelievable new strengths.

Learning to dance is indeed a ‘labour of love’ and I cherish every moment. How privileged we are to share this indescribable ‘magic of dance.’

Hoping to take the art of Dance to empower more and more people to sense and love the beauty of every movement in the moments called Life.

Do you dance?

This post is all about you!

Cos I would love to know more about you, my dear reader.

Would you be so kind as to share if you are fond of dancing…

Do you dance?

And if the music is right …

Would you prefer to dance solo or with a partner?

I do believe dancing from the heart has much to do with your wellbeing.

As a dance trainer over the years, I have come across many people to whom movement and music have made a huge difference in their lives.

Have always seen that it is not about the level or the intricacies of the steps or advanced techniques…

Rather it is about how you feel as you dance from within and how you make and leave another feeling even after the dance is over.

A few minutes of enjoyable dancing can leave lasting impressions on every cell of the being for the better.

Whatever the music or dance style that appeals to you the point is it integrates your healing mode and brings forth a positive transformation in the mind and body.

This is my humble attempt to bring the like-minded together and motivate you to take a step and dance some more.

As you dance you are creating health in and around you.

Do share if you feel dance has touched your life in any way…

Would be great to hear your insights and experiences.

Have shared many of my personal experiences over the years with my Dance for wellness workshops.

Behind the scenes

Behind the Beautiful

Are often inexplicable truths

Behind the dare

Are often unbearable circumstances

Behind the victory

Are often countless defeats

Behind the smiles

Are often gutwrenching griefs

Behind the wisdom of silence

Are often heartbreaking stories.

Behind the scenes of glory

Are often those unspeakable truths

Of lives lived and living

In hope beyond the despair

Of wins beyond the losses.

Of success beyond the failures

Like each facet is necessary

For the diamond to truly sparkle!

Each phase is full of purpose

For everything matters to the whole.

Moves from the heart!

When the heart is glad, the feet are ready to dance, when the feet dance, the heart is glad!

Dancing is the joy in being awake to the miracle of being alive.

And dancing hearts know it best!

Life is a dance

Life is a dance …

Be inspired to dance.

A little everyday.

To move to unshackle

The unnecessary, let go of tensions

Ease into align the body and mind

Inculcate a loving spirit.

Learn to relax and enjoy life!

Every little reminder

That helps us to get up and move

Helps us to be happier souls .

Every step can make a difference.

Take a step… dance on to life!

Savvy

And here is song just for you

To kickstart a move…

I dont know about you …but I feel

Better when I am dancing!
