Celebrating Bollywood with dancing

Zeephyr Academy of performing arts recently presented Naach – the filmy way to celebrate 100 years of the essence of Bollywood dancing with Terence Lewis, the well-known choreographer.

Over 200 participants from the age group of 2-45 danced on select chartbusters and showed their love for Bollywood through their performances. There was a special mujra performance by the Classical Bollywood Mujra group, choreographed by Ranjan Majumdar and reminded everyone of the some movies of the black-and-white era.
Specially-abled children from Sparsh, an NGO also gave a heart-winning dance performance on a remix of Bollywood songs and entertained everyone present. The children managed to get Terence Lewis to the dance floor to do a small jig with them.

Terence, who has trained in jazz, ballet and contemporary dance forms, has made his name in the film industry, having choreographed numerous Bollywood songs, musicals, stage shows, ads and music videos.

Terence has trained extensively in Indian and Western dance disciplines both in India and abroad. Speaking after the event, the choreographer was generous with his appreciation, “I am touched to see all the children dance so well. I am also very touched to see the performance by the children of Sparsh. Now, I feel that I will have to shift to Delhi and live here.”

Established in 2000 the dance academy boasts of having trained more than 40,000 Zeephyrites. Ranjan, also the director of Zeephyr said later, “Dance is the hidden language of the soul. It is a beautiful expression which helps you connect not only with your inner self but also with the outside world.”
