It was that weekend when most of us had our shorts, sunglasses and summer wear on. Celebrating the weather, Dance Sansaar made their way to sunny Solihull to promote our Lawk Naach (people dancing) Dancing for the Games project. We were greeted by a very welcoming bunch of people and there was heaps of excitement, joy and a buzz around the whole town centre. Anil got the crowd going as he played his Dhol (drum) and spread a happy and joyous atmosphere as Jag got everyone clapping to the beat! Our Giddha performance definitely got the youngsters of Solihull up and dancing as we had a couple of children up in the marquee taking part in the Lawk Naach workshop and doing better than Jag himself! Always so inspiring seeing children enjoying different cultures and having a great time. Without doubt the ‘Bhangra funky chicken’ once again was everyone’s favourite move!
During the workshop a woman who initially struggled to join in with the activities inspired the team by volunteering herself to undertake the whole 5 step routine. It was an absolute delight seeing the smile on her face whilst performing alongside the Solihull team. The effort and courage shown by the performers was outstanding! It was an absolute pleasure spending our afternoon enjoying the weather with everyone in Solihull. We would like to thank Melanie for inviting us and letting us be a part of such a great day!
