 Experiencing diverse art forms today is a challenging proposition as the UK school system increasingly favours more ‘mainstream’ sports. Desiree visited the school to inspire the pupils, suggesting innovative ways in which creative skills -that are learned in South Asian dance – can be effectively applied to storytelling.

Some of the techniques used in South Asian dance can support:

  • Communications skills, public performances
  • Physical expression
  • Thinking creatively
  • Appreciating the world and environment around us with all senses
  • Effective use of both sides of the body
  • Appreciating the world from different perspectives
  • Building self-esteem and confidence 

In addition, students who are not very academic but are very creative can benefit from finding engaging ways to express their art.
