SHIAMAK DAVAR’S DANCE EDUCATION (SDE)

Universal has introduced the SDE – a specially developed programme for school children and taught by highly qualified, skilled and trained SDIPA instructors. SDE’s objective is to offer learners an opportunity to learn dance with special focus on styles and techniques.

The programme draws from Jazz techniques, Ballet exercises, Indian dance forms, Yoga, Physical Training Disciplines, Dance Therapy activities and the Theatre Arts to offer students an outlet for personal growth and creative expression.

Dance is a therapeutic activity, since it enables a direct expression of emotions and thoughts that learners may not be able to otherwise express. Although the most important essence of dance is creative expression and fun, the dance class is structured to improve the following: Fitness levels, Confidence, Concentration, Discipline, Posture, Body Awareness, Attitude, Appetite, Memory, Will Power, Communication skills, Team-spirit, Creativity and thus, all round development.
