I usually describe myself a stick. Not because I’m as thin as one but because I’m as inflexible as a stick.
But I joined contemporary dance class at the Natya Institute of Kathak. This is a fancy famous place in Malleswaram started by a great dancer Dr Maya Rao and a lot of wonderful dancers have arose from here.
Am I trying to be one of those amazing dancers? Na..like my teacher says “enjoy dancing, give your body a chance”.
I’d been admiring contemporary dance since high school and lately I saw a short video of my friend in the US dancing so beautifully that I wanted to learn.
So what if it’s hard? So what if I’m a stick? What if i have no prior background in dance? So what if I’m 25. I’m not getting any younger anyway!
