Keen dance enthusiasts from across the Lower Mainland will make music visible through dance at Shiamak’s Winter Funk show 2017
Students (ages 4-74 years) will bring the stage alive with the magic of celebration and of course Bollywood’s high energy remixes. “My Vancouver students have been actively taking part in shows and events showcasing India’s culture and Bollywood music and dance. It’s beautiful to watch people from different ethnic groups come together through dance” says Shiamak.
This recital will showcase Shiamak’s Bollywood Jazz dance style, a favorite amongst all age groups that works as a great stress buster, combines the technique of Jazz with the fun and high energy Bollywood hip shakes and moves. Winter Funk is a culmination of a 12-week training program that provides its participants a great platform to showcase their dance skills and integrates people from all ages, communities and backgrounds through dance and the performing arts.
‘Vancouver has great potential. Students here have a certain energy that makes them great performers on stage!’ says Shiamak.
The highlights of this show include performances by members with special needs from Shiamak’s Victory Arts Foundation-a not for profit organization that conducts dance as therapy to people with special needs. The Winter Funk recital is like one Big Bollywood Dance Party for the performers and the audience.
