She wants the world to dance with her Precisely why Anupreet doesn’t want to limit herself and those keen to learn how to dance,to one form. All set to launch her own dance academy in Sector 8,the dancer wants the city to explore and enjoy various genres of dance,from folk to classical,western to regional. “There is immense talent here,but a lack of organized facilities where lovers of dance can get exposure and training from experts in the field,” Anu moved to Mumbai three years back and has trained with Saroj Khan and Shiamak Davar. At the Academy,adds Anu,a series of workshops on different forms of dance will be held throughout the year. “The workshops will be conducted by exponents of dance,” for starters,a 15-day Rajasthani folk dance workshop will be held from January 15 onwards,which will be followed by a show at Tagore. The workshop will be conducted by Pt. Shakuntala Panwar,Director,Shakuntalam,Udaipur,who has trained over 20,000 students nationally. “Dance is my passion and I want that people should be exposed to new forms and get an opportunity to learn and enjoy the art,” the dancer’s on a roll.
