Here are some questions that you may have about Sadhana Nritya Sangeet Vidyalaya and Guru Shashilata Guptaji.
Do you teach Bollywood dance?
Guru Shashiji: Yes and no. Since all dance forms are connected, one must learn to capture the rhythm of the music, maintain the balance of the body and dance freely as one wishes to dance. This is what I teach my students through the Classical Dance form. Even Madhuri Dixit is a classical Kathak dancer and Hema Malini a Bharatnatyam dancer.
Can I learn 3 or 4 things at the same time?
Guru Shashiji: Yes, certainly! The mind absorbs all that you feed into it. Learning several musical arts simultaneously is no impediment to the learning process. It, in fact, compliments the learning of the different art forms. Hence I vigorously encourage my students to explore and learn different classical music and dances. The timings in our institute can be adjusted accordingly so that a student can learn the different art forms one after another in one visit. I am glad to offer private tuitions if students are interested in learning several things and gain enough dedicated attention and vital experience from me.
