I got hold of a pass for the Summer Funk, the dance show by students of Shiamak’s Dance Academy. And it did cost me a good 300 bucks, but was worth it. It was really awesome.
This dance show is organized so that students can get their taste of a stage show after learning the dance for the first time, and for the old timers it gives more experience. There are different categories under which performances were sorted and the one liked the most was the dance done by Victory Arts Foundation which is not – for – profit academy which teaches dance to those who are physically disabled.
When I saw deaf people dancing, I was taken aback. How in the world do they do it? And such coordination of steps left my mouth opened for minutes! Though I had visited Summer Funk last year as well, this time it was different. It was 15th anniversary of Summer Funk and Shiamak himself was there.
Some funny events also did happen. Barclays had organized a lucky draw where two set of DVDs were to be awared and the winners choosen in the lucky draw were two Mehtas from the same family. One mom, other was her child. The other prize went to Poonam Davar, Shiamak’s mom. She herself then nominated another women to be chosen as the lucky one than herself.
All in all, it was a great evening.
