Bollywood’s dancing king- Govinda was the esteemed chief guest who lit the auspicious inaugural lamp of “India Dance Week” on 29th April. He was also seen shaking a leg on his super hit song “Aa Aa Eee Oo Ooo Mera Dil Na Todo” from the film RAJA BABU. When he took to the stage and started to dance the crowd cheered and demanded to see his iconic moves, which he obliged to everyone’s delight.
The event kick started with the Ganesh Vandana performed by Uma Rele’s Nalanda Nritya Kala, followed by mentally challenged people of NGO Advitya dancing along with actress Vandana Sajnani and Smilie Suri who spoke about dance being for everyone be it normal, special or differently abled. Apart from classical and folk dances by Nalanda the show also had Villoo Bharucha’s School of Ballet performance Russian and French Style Ballet and Brian Fernandes dance Academy showcasing modern dances. It was a visual treat to see Ryoko De’s school of international folk dances present some rare dances of the Eastern World like; Nichibu from Japan, long sleeve dance from China and Cham dance from Tibet.
This festival is the only dance festival in the country that has Indian classical, Indian folk, international folk, ballet, Bollywood, ballroom, Latin dances and many other dance forms performed by professionals from all over India. “India Dance Week” does not believe in dividing the dancers as per the forms they practice, instead joins their hearts as dance lovers and provides them a platform to showcase their love for the art of dance. The 3rd India Dance Week is not only promoting dance, but also following their motto “Dance for a Cause”
