05 Apr Holi Hai!
On Saturday 25th March, the Elite RSA Academy dancers were invited to participate in the Holi Basant Ke Rang event taking place at the Arena Theatre, in Wolverhampton. The piece they performed was called Balam Pichkari, a Bollywood dance celebrating Holi, the Festival of Colour, choreographed by Subhash Viman Gorania. The students are all currently studying a dance qualification with Mrs O’Connor, either at BTEC or IB Level.
The students performed to a packed theatre. Jaivant Patel, from Jai Jashn Dance and organiser of the the Holi Basant Ke Rang event, said:
“I’m so impressed with the RSA Academy Students and their commitment to dance. Asnon-South Asian girls they have captured the nuances of Bollywood Dance to perfection. This is testament to Subhash’s choreography and Mrs O’Connor’s teaching.’
The students are looking forward to performing at Sampad’s Asian Spring Festival, taking place in Birmingham next month, and working more closely with Jaivant Patel and Jai Jashn Dance in the near future.
Thank you to Jaivant for giving our students this opportunity.
