Dance school’s annual showcase

Months of training and dedicated practice culminated in a glittering dance show with more than 40 students from the Aradhana’s School of Dance exhibiting their newly learnt talents on Saturday, December 6.

The concert comprised of both classical as well as contemporary dances which were choreographed by Aradhana demonstrating her versatility in this art form.

Students, as young as five years old and as old as 24 years old executed each item to perfection and performed with passion, making it evident that Aradhana’s love for “owning” a performance was indeed contagious. The same love that she possesses for dance runs through the veins of all her students and is inculcated and nurtured from the first lesson.

Performing to a sold-out audience that was enraptured by this visual spectacular, the function was compered by the beautiful Omika Seeth. A spectacular live dance performance of Vaishna Vajan was rendered by local musician Pawan Bhundoo.
Aradhana has been dancing from the age of six, graduated and now imparts her skills to her students every Friday evening at the Aryan Hall. The dance school has been in existence for eight wonderful years, where she enjoys working with children from diverse cultures.

Aradhana’s love for promoting the Indian culture through dance is not merely confined to the lessons she offers as she regularly offers her services at no cost, to any organization in need of her services. Her humility and natural love for teaching and humanity has seen her dance school grow from strength to strength.

Guest speaker, Babu Baijoo, Msunduzi municipality speaker, paid fitting tribute in acknowledging Aradhana’s work over the years as well as her contribution to society in promoting the Indian culture and beautiful heritage.

There were smiles all around as every student was recognized and presented with a certificate and token of appreciation for their hard work and progress made during the year. It was evident to see that the students enjoyed performing to a hall full of well-wishers. The audience were treated to scrumptious dinner thereafter.

Dance classes resume on February 5 and any enquires can be directed to Aradhana on 083 786 7059 or email: yuktazn@yahoo.com.
