A heartiest welcome to all my gorgeous, gorgeous clients to this dance jungle!
I am Pooja Dedhia, your dance instructor for the coming days. I feel incredibly honored that you chose to visit my class, and I am looking forward to sharing my skills with all of you. I dearly hope that you are excited as well!
Let me tell you the importance of this performance art and why dance should be a part of your routine. Dance helps you to be in tune with your emotions and use your natural energy to revitalize your body. Dancing can be a way to stay fit for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. It improves your motor skills, tones your muscles, increases strength, endurance, and fitness. It is also a great way to meet new friends!
The choreography of ‘Saude Bazi’ is a graceful mixture of two of my favorite dance forms, Tutting and Semiclassical, and it will be taught to you with a step-by-step guide for your proper practice. You will learn the Tutting dance style in the first half of the routine and Semiclassical in the other half. Tutting is a Hip hop dance style that emphasizes the body's ability to create geometric shapes and straight lines and involves angular movements of the hands and fingers. Many interesting concepts help make your Tutting more intricate and creative. One of the things that makes Tutting unique is that some dances can't use their fingers to express themselves. The box concept is often used to create box shapes with the arms, hands, fingers, etc. Tutting also uses Popping concepts to link and animate the various shapes being made.
In contrast, Semiclassical is an art form that features extensive movements of your body while maintaining grace along with expressions and posture. This dance has its origins in Indian classical and folk dance, which, when put together, is called Semi-Classical dance form. Its dance steps and moves are not as complex or intricate as pure classical forms. However, the authenticity of the Indian dance form is preserved, and students can grasp these lighter semi-classical dances easily. Semi-classical dances are fun and fluid. You will be exhilarated to learn the combination of both in just one dance.
What to wear while learning this routine?
This dance practice requires a wide range of motion and movements. Therefore, wear clothes that won't restrict your body. For example, loose tops, pants, or shorts breezy enough to sweat in will work best. You can dance bare feet to feel fully connected to the floor, but wear socks if you intend to dance on rougher carpeted surfaces.
How to prep your dance space?
Ensure there is enough space to practice in and get rid of any sharp edges lurking nearby. This will allow you to jump, turn, and move without any worries of bumping your shin on that pesky coffee table or tripping over an awkward rug.
Tip: Please keep drinking water between the classes to stay hydrated. Ensure you have water access near you while you practice, so you don't have to take unnecessary breaks between the classes. Also, make sure to consume only one or two sips at a time to avoid stomach aches because we need to jump, rotate and exercise.
Does all that sound good to you? If yes, start learning this thrilling cocktail of Semiclassical and Tutting at home with me right now! Do check out the promo video to watch the entire choreography. In this tutorial, all the steps are taught step by step with good detailing for your proper practice. You will learn some simple yet beautiful Semiclassical and tutting moves in very little time.
Are you afraid that you're a slow learner? Or that you will forget the choreography in a few months? The best part is that you can always pause, rewind and watch it all over again. So if a step is difficult to learn, you have all the time in the world at your comfort to practice as much as you like. You can also revisit this tutorial whenever you want and get your friends to learn with you. You also contact me on this platform if you've any further doubts.
