The most anticipated summer dance show, Summer Funk™ conducted by The SHIAMAK Dance Academy lived up to its expectations showcasing various dance styles in front of a packed audience! Performers between ages four to eighty four danced through the summer and put up a colourful display on June 27 at The Bell Performing Arts Centre, Surrey.

The world’s biggest dance academy initiated a new format introducing a healthy dance competition – Rise of the Champions where each participating team competed to become the best dance class and best venue across the lower mainland. Building team spirit and helping them work harder, the competition went beyond just dance-ability where the judges also considered their costumes, energy and group effort while making the final decision. The SHIAMAK Dance Competition was judged by Pamela Rosa (Founding Member & Co – Owner/Director – Harbour Dance Centre), Kanika Sasan (Fashion Editor – Darpan Magazine) and Kashmira Pestonji (Senior Manager & Principal Dancer – SHIAMAK).

The biggest highlight of the show this year was a surprise visit by the Artistic Director and Founder, Shiamak Davar himself along with his COO who is also a famous dance reality show judge, Marzi Pestonji. The performance by lead singer of naQsh, Daksh Kubba performed at the show for the first time was well appreciated as well. The eleventh edition of SHIAMAK Summer Funk in Vancouver was yet again a huge success!
