I could have danced all night

The hugely popular Shiamak Davar's Institute for Performing Arts' three-month workshop begins today.



GET IN GROOVE: A fun way to get fit.

HAVE YOU watched Hrithik Roshan and company do those quicksilver dances and looked wistfully at your obstinately left feet? Do you feel that the earth moves (as in trembles and shudders) as you walk?

Hey, the good news is no one is born a dancer - all it requires is a will. And if you have that will and a super instructor like Shiamak Davar (the one and only), you could soon give the best of dancers a complex. Dancing is fun way of keeping fit - would you pass up a chance to flaunt that well-toned body on the dance floor?

It all began last year with Shiamak Davar's Summer Funk - a special batch with 12 classes that culminated in a presentation in front of Shiamak. This was followed by another batch with 18 classes over the duration of six weeks. Every class included 40 minutes of workout and 20 minutes of learning dances steps. This also culminated in a show, which was a grand success.


And now the time has come for another workshop. And on cue, Shiamak Davar's Institute for Performing Arts (SDIPA) is organising a three-month workshop starting today. The total number of classes this time has been increased from 18 to 24. Aspiring dancers and those bitten by the fitness bug can greatly benefit from the workshop. The fee, incidentally, is a mere Rs. 700 a month.

The classes will be held in three venues - YWCA (Secunderabad), Banjara Hills and Citi Life (Abids). Dance styles covered include jazz, salsa, freestyle and rock `n' roll. The dance class includes stretching and exercises, which makes for a good fitness regimen. The classes also give participants a chance to gain confidence for a performance or even a dance on a floor.

Two classes will also be held at a discotheque, which will give the students a better idea on how to perform under the lights.

Registrations are in progress at the YWCA and the SDIPA office in Hyderabad. The contact number is 55101730/55101731. Registrations are open on Sundays as well. So all who want to burn up the dance floor while looking wonderfully fit, grab that phone and make that registration.
