Workshop venue – The Performers Academy, 3674 Beach Boulevard, Jacksonville, Florida, 32207.

Regarding the launch webisode of the academy’s latest web series, My ‘Have Feet Will Dance’ Story, Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan states, “Lots of people have different ideas about what a dance school should mean. Many people think that having two left feet means you don’t know how to dance, Shiamak feels if you have feet he will make sure you’re able to use them to dance to a number in rhythm.”

Jacksonville will get a chance to celebrate the festival of colors, Holi, dancing to popular Bollywood music and learning Shiamak’s Bollywood Jazz from his expert faculty. This two day workshop will make these colors come alive through dance, fun and festivities. Senior instructor Bhuvan Sharma, who danced as a soloist with actress Sonakshi Sinha at the IIFA Awards (Tampa Bay, 2014), will be conducting the workshop. With over ten years of experience teaching students across India and UAE, he has also trained Bollywood’s biggest superstar Shah Rukh Khan amongst many others.

This workshop takes the Founder & Artistic Director, Shiamak Davar’s mission to one more destination. You can feel just how proud he is with his team and the success of the academy.  This is what he told us regarding the expansion,

“It’s amazing to see how well people are embracing different cultures and dances from around the world. Bollywood is a fun and energetic dance style that has become extremely popu-lar. I’m sure the dance enthusiasts in Jacksonville will enjoy this workshop and experience the Indian carnival of colors.”
