Reaching out to over a million dance enthusiasts across India, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates, the Guru of Dance, Shiamak Davar, is now launching his dance academy in The United States of America.
Shiamak said,”So excited my classes are starting in USA! Dance has sure made the world a smaller place!”
Starting this fall, SHIAMAK Dance classes will be conducted at multiple studios across New York and New Jersey. Classes will be taught by senior faculty members, Deeba Patel, Bhuvan Sharma & Devashree Pande. Instructors have been highly trained by Shiamak for multiple years and have performed at national and international live events, films, sports events and award shows. Patel, Sharma and Pande have also taught and performed with Bollywood’s A-list celebrities.
Shiamak has introduced the world to new dance forms, which are amalgamations of Indian and Western dance, fused with his own unique and personal style. Spreading the joy of dance to students as young as four all the way to eighty four, his faculty teaches his patent dance styles; including Shiamak’s Indo Jazz™, Shiamak’s Bollywood Jazz ™ and Shabop (Hip Hop & Street Funk) amongst many others.
