DIRECTOR'S NOTE

As the Founder and Artistic Director, my aim through Shiamak Dance Education (SDE) is to share the benefits of dance with students in their formative years. When I started my journey two decades back, I realized my mission of spreading the joy of dance, and using its therapeutic power. During this journey I have seen people heal physically, mentally and spiritually through performing arts.

 

Whilst at school, children are more receptive to the process of learning, and using dance as a medium of physical activity and creative medium, this program aims at channelizing their energy in a resourceful manner. The objective behind starting SDE is to make it a part of the regular curriculum with a specially designed syllabus that encompasses all aspects of the performing arts. This is where the art of dance and the performing arts help children develop skills, knowledge and understanding that goes beyond the classroom.

 

My aim has been to provide quality dance education, inculcate correct technique and provide wholesome training. The expert faculty is personally trained by me and specializes in teaching children of all age groups, understanding their individual requirements and ensuring that they learn in a fun and friendly environment.

 

I invite your esteemed institute in adopting a holistic learning approach provided through Shiamak Dance Education.

 

 

 

 

 

God Bless
