Susmita Das Gupta and Daniel Clifford

Kolkata March 15, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) On Saturday, the 10th of March, 2012, we visited a workshop on Latin American ballroom dance at St. Lawrence School in Kolkata. Latin American ballroom includes forms such as Samba, Rumba, Cha-cha-cha, Jive etc. Susmita Das Gupta (Interview), who is organizing the workshop under the aegis of her teacher, informed us about the nature of the week-long workshop and the motivation behind organizing it. She emphasized the need to create widespread awareness about Western dance forms in India.

Important western dance forms, says Susmita, have often been trivialized in popular Hindi films, and as such, people refuse to take it seriously. In India, people who wish to pursue dance seriously are mostly trained in Indian classical dance forms. While that is a healthy step in itself, yet she feels that with proper awareness about the variety of dance forms in the west, people are sure to open up to newer dance forms. By organizing the workshop, she wishes to fill the increasing void by encouraging people ranging from different age groups to take part in the workshop. She is happy with the results as of now, and holds multiple sessions through the evening with several age groups, ranging from toddlers to grown-ups.
