JAS­MEET K SHAN, 24 Chore­og­ra­pher

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI COVER STORY -

A Latin Amer­i­can Dance state cham­pion and a chore­og­ra­pher for the past eight years, Jas­meet K Shan is now a dance fa­cil­i­ta­tor at self-owned ven­ture Dance Dacha. The 24-year-old dance in­struc­tor from Chandi­garh com­bines ther­apy and dance in her unique ap­proach to holis­tic well­ness.

BE DIF­FER­ENT She de­signs dance se­quences and work­shops, us­ing dif­fer­rnt dance forms like folk, In­dian and Western. “We aim to re­vive the pur­pose of dance—com­mu­ni­ca­tion, en­joy­ment, heal­ing and re­lax­ation,” says Shan. This, she says, pro­vides a neu­ro­mus­cu­lar workout and also sta­bilises core mus­cles.” Shan is cur­rently train­ing around 2,000 stu­dents. In ev­ery ses­sion she aims to bring alive one hid­den as­pect of the dancer. “This re­ally helps in over­com­ing life­style prob­lems like stress, de­pres­sion, weight is­sues and obe­sity,” she says.

RECOG­NI­TION The year 2010 saw her bag­ging two gold and two sil­ver ti­tles at the Chandi­garh State Dance Sport Cham­pi­onship for Latin Danc­ing. Con­tact: http://www.face­book.com/dancedach
