If what you remember most about Dil To Pagal Hai were the dances, then here's
the very school for you, right in town!
Shiamak Davar's Institute For The Performing Arts (SDIPA) is one of India's leading dance institutes with branches in all major cities. Shiamak Davar, the founder, is a multifaceted personality - a celebrated choreographer, dancer, singer and actor with several national and international awards to his credit.
Davar's dance classes started in 1986 aiming to help people discover creative expression through dance, release positive energy and improve confidence. Students who have undergone the training range in age from 4 to 64. Shiamak has trained people of all shapes and sizes, and even special/mentally challenged people.
Workshops are conducted mainly in the Jazz style of dance. However, various dance styles such as hip-hop, rock-n-roll, afro-jazz and salsa are also incorporated in the curriculum as per the interest and aptitude levels of the students.
SDIPA is organizing a fresh workshop for dance enthusiasts starting on the 10th of October. Qualified teachers of SDIPA will train the students, and classes will be held at 3 different venues as follows:
(1) Kalpa School, Banjara Hills
(2) Celebrity City Center, Begumpet
(3) Our Place, Road No 10, Banjara Hills
The timing of the morning session is 6.00am - 7.00am, while the evening session is from 6.00pm - 7.00pm and 6.45pm - 7.45pm respectively. These timings are tentative, and might change depending on the students' requirements and requests.
The Summer Funk show will be the grand finale to the dance workshop. Students are specially trained for this ultimate professional dance experience. The main reason for the Summer Funk show is to give every student an opportunity to perform on stage and experience what professionals do - the rehearsals, the costume trials, the team work, the excitement, the professionalism, the discipline and, most of all, the performance. This grand finale's date and timings will be announced later.
Interested girls will have to come in leotards and tights. Boys will have to come in bicycle shorts and tight vests. If you feel more comfortable wearing a track pant and T-shirt, that's for the training classes. Even a salwar-kameez is fine for those who are particularly shy, as long as the wear allows free and comfortable movement.
