Footlights 6, is the 6th edition of the students dance showcase, organised by Tarantismo Creative Dance Company. It’s held every year, somewhere in the heart of Bangalore.
Full missing scenes is happening with the peeps at Tarantismo. Haven’t been dancing in more than 2 months. Laziness is setting in. To top it off, everyone’s scattered across cities and countries now. Shot of us of our last trip to Goa, shot somewhere on the road to Goa’s Calangute beach.
Finally, a chance to be at Footlights, and not on the stage. The last time that happened, was at the very first edition. …
We couldn’t let go of Chris Jarosz, without having him remember us by. And what best way, than a Methiyadi? A perfect mix of tradition and modern masala, a subtle way of exporting Indian culture. Our little way of saying thank you, for all the little things you taught us, and the movement you shared with the memebers of Tarantismo.

So the workshop with Chris Jarosz in Bangalore was a good hit among the dance community. we managed to get about 45 dancers to join us for a workshop on a weekday evening, with just 24hrs notice. If you were there, try spotting yourself among the dancers 🙂
Here’s the chance for people in Bangalore to train and perform with my dance team, Tarantismo. We teach the following styles – Belly dance, bollywood, lyrical contemporary and kids creative dance. Your chance to shake a leg at Footlights 4 begins from the second week of January.
Pictures of the audience that turned up on the 23rd of Dec, to participate in the Terence Lewis master class organised at the Lalit Ashok, Bangalore. 378 people participated, a record in itself!
We broke all records hosting the Terence Lewis master class in Bangalore, a once in a life time oppurtunity to learn from the God of dance in India. It was definitely worth the wait
Now I’m known by close friends to run around and do the most weird things ( sometimes in a drunken state). This time I managed to convince Arun to do something wacky. Got him to pop his head out of a window at the Hawa Mahal Jaipur.
