I am a passionate Indian Dancer, primarily trained in Kathak Dance (North Indian Classical Dance). I took my 6th Year examination (Visharad Purna) in 2015, and completed my solo graduation performance in 2017. I have studied Kathak in both the UK and India extensively since the age of 4. I took a gap year before starting my degree in Biomedical Sciences to train in Bollywood, Ballet, Comtemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop and Commercial Dance. During this year i performed with Bollyflex Bollywood Company at the Boishaki Mela.
Dance Instruction/Teaching Experience::
In my first year of university I choreographed, taught and performed a 5 minute piece in a West End show run by my university. Most of the students were complete beginners. The piece was a mixture of Kathak and Semi-classical bollywood and can be found on **Contact Detail Removed** titled "Kathak Medley: Tandav, Main Vari Vari, Teentaal, Aayat, Cheap Thrills Kathak Mix", profile name "Anushka ". These dancers improved by leaps and bounds in just 1.5 short months. I have also taught younger children bollywood and contemporary pieces during my time at secondary school.
The most important part of teaching is patience. It takes years to master the art of dancing. I focus quite strongly on technique as I find children who have good technique go on to pick up new choreography and different styles much quicker. It is also important that the student goes at their own pace and enjoys the classes. I think its useful to bring in different styles of choreography to ensure the dancer learns different types of movements and can create their own style as they mature as a dancer. Finally, in the case of Kathak especially there is some emphasis on understanding the history of the dance and theory behind the movements.
