HE SAID — “Cinema gives glamour to Classical Dance and Dance gives art to Cinema
Mumbai, February 12, 2015:- “Art has to educate and entertain.” This was the key message of the connoisseur of Classical Dance, Deepak Mazumdar, who educated 400 students at the 5th VEDA event of Whistling Woods International (WWI) about the divine art form of classical dance. 5th VEDA in itself means ‘Natyashastra’, which teaches dance, acting and drama to develop the artistic skills of every human being.
It was one of the most exciting 5th VEDA evening for students who were glued to Maestro Deepak Mazumdar’s talk on Indian classical dance and its various forms, Hasta Mudras, emotions and postures, which brings grace in one as a whole. He demonstrated the subject through his mesmerising dances and also brought students on stage to learn and perform. Students enacted along with him the various mudras and bhavas present in dance.
Subhash Ghai, Founder and Chairman of WWI, shared his experiences through videos of classical dances of Vyajanthimala, Hema Malini, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai on big screen. He explained to the students that they remained super stars for decades mainly because of their training in classical dance.
