Ten-second takeaway

Tarantismo Creative Dance Company will make sure you look good dancing, even if you have two left feet.

Have feet, will dance

Started by the highly energetic Arati Punwani exactly a decade ago, the vision of this dance company was always clear – to teach people to dance euphorically, expressively and fearlessly. And while they changed venues, timings, a few dance teachers and even a surname {Arati became Punwani Sunawala} that goal was set in stone. Now, with her professional partner Deepthi Shetty being on board since the beginning, the two have ensured that the company has become synonymous with dance in the city.

Beyond lessons

Staying true to their passion and strengths, Tarantismo focuses on two disciplines that are both taught and performed {more about their troupe later} – Contemporary Dance and Belly Dancing. Classes are at various levels, so if you’ve got two left feet and can certainly not keep up with the pros, their basic classes create a fantastic atmosphere. We love that you’re expected to actually get into character before you get your moves right. Plus, encouragement and personal tips at every step to make sure you feel comfortable while not being told off.

Step up

In the Contemporary classes, Arati will make sure you’re bouncing off the walls thanks to her level of enthusiasm. And the spunky dancer knows exactly what it takes to get you grooving. Deepthi’s belly dances will transport you to the desert safaris and you’ll be shaking and shimmying in no time. Oh! And if you have a shaadi coming up, we suggest you call these guys to choreograph the dances because, from experience, they really hit the nail on the head when it comes to personalisation. Think tales of love told through dance skits or even just starting a party to the couple’s favourite tunes. They’ll even help you with your first dance or that office party you have to impress the boss with.

So we’re thinking…

A great way to get in shape and learn a skill, signing up for Tarantismo’s classes will even get you a whole new bunch of friends. What’s stopping you?
