Everyone knows that the benefits of dancing range from keeping fit and burning calories the fun way to improving your self esteem and adding to your social graces and skills. Getting Bangaloreans to rock around the clock with instruction from trained teachers was the dance duo Prithvi and Ree, who inaugurated their new dance studio ‘Just Dance’ on Mosque Road last week.

“We have been holding regular classes at various venues in the City for over a decade now, under the aegis of our company ‘Rock around the clock’ and our belief is that if you can walk, you can dance,” says Ree.

The inauguration kicked off with a series of exhibition dances by different instructors showcasing their moves and movements on the brand new dance floor. Adding to the buzz was South Indian actress Priyamani who got into the spirit of the event showing off her dance moves with plenty of energy and enthusiasm. “We plan to have dance sessions for all age groups including  special batches for women only. We will be teaching all the popular dance forms from Bollywood to salsa, hip hop, jive, cha-cha, merengue etc. For those who want the more classical and traditional dance lessons, we also teach Kathak and Bharatanatyam,” adds Ree.

Just Dance will also have a health bar serving light snacks for the calorie conscious and a store stocked with dance accessories.

“Dance is an interesting, rewarding experience at many different levels whether studying it for fun, exercise, or to pursue a dance career. There are many obvious benefits - not just for kids but people of all ages as it helps develop muscle strength, flexibility,
increases coordination and is a great form for overall fitness. In fact, we believe that  everyone has the ability to dance and in today’s fast paced world where we often forget to take some time off for ourselves, dancing is a great destresser,” they aver.

Just Dance is located at 2nd Floor,13 Mosque Road, Frazer Town.
