Dance involves a greater range of motion, coordination, strength, stamina, and endurance than most other physical activities. This is accomplished through movement patterns that teach coordination and kinesthetic memory. Dancing utilizes the entire body and is an excellent form of exercise for total body fitness. Young children are naturally active, but dance offers an avenue to expand movement possibilities and skills.

A Peep into the Workshop
Summer Workshop 16′
Dancing, they say, is dreaming with your eyes open. This summer, children were completely engrossed in the new techniques and activities taught by Pragati didi. They eagerly looked forward to learning something new each day. Let’s take a peek into the activities this summer!
It’s not just dancing,
But learning with some fun and moving;
It’s not just teaching,
But exploring what your heart and mind are telling;
It’s not a showcase for impressing,
But expressing what you are experiencing and feeling.
Dance is a magical experience! Pick up a tune, make it your own, add some fun and simply move to the beats. A perfect recipe that comes intrinsically to children. They enjoyed themselves so much through the dance workshop, little did they realize the beauty created in the process.
These young ones indeed had our facilitator, Pragati didi surprised by their remarkable excitement and enthusiasm. Amidst the fun and games, children were not only able to pick up dance techniques but also went on to create some of their own steps for the showcase performance.
Their sweet performance surely had us all tapping our feet and filled the air with joy and excitement!
