Update: March 28: Saroj Khan Live Performance in Toronto
By A Correspondent
Ace Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan will be showcasing her choreography skills in a live performance in Toronto.
The performance, which will take place at the end of a four-day long workshop will be choreographed by Saroj Khan herself and include participants who attend two sessions of the workshop.
“The idea is to give participants in the workshop a complete experience. They will experience first-hand how choreographers work, how dances are set, and how the whole process works. The experience of putting together a complete show in just four days itself is incredible. And who better to learn it from than Saroj Khan herself”, says Puja Amin, founder of Sanskriti Arts.
The performance will be part of Dance Diaries with Saroj Khan, a unique endeavor by Sanskriti Arts and Imagebuilderz for Bollywood dance fans to learn the art of popular dance under the tutelage of one of Bollywood’s best choreographers’ and get a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform with the choreographer on stage during the final showcase.
The first event of its kind in Canada, Dance Diaries will allow Bollywood enthusiasts to train with leading dance director Saroj Khan who is credited with choreographing some of Bollywood’s most popular numbers including Ek Do Teen from Tezaab, Dhak Karne Laga from Beta and more recently Gun Guna Re from Agneepath and Dil Mera Muft Ka from Agent Vinod. The workshops will be half day (on first day only), full-day or one on one sessions between March 25 and March 28, 2016 in Toronto and Ottawa and will allow students to learn directly from Saroj Khan the moves to some of her evergreen popular classics.
“We hope this experience will help participants move forth and be part of bigger and more prestigious projects in the future. Through this workshop and showcase, we aim to provide participants the know-how and confidence required to perform as in Bollywood,” says Renu Mehta, president of Imagebuilderz.
The final showcase on March 28 from 7PM until 9PM will take place at the Maja Prentice Theatre in Mississauga and present the dance choreography that participants would have learnt during the course of the workshops.
