By Our Staff Reporter 

Dehradun, 4 Jul: ‘Vibrations the Dance Studio’ was founded by Harshit Gupta and Abhinav Bhattacharya on 25 April, 2014. For the last eight years, Vibrations has done remarkable work in the field of dance. Vibrations started with a professional certified course summer batch in 2018, at which participants were trained by professional trainers from around the country.

This year, also, Vibrations organised “Groundwork”, a Certified Professional Dance & Theatre Training programme. “Aladdin”, the first-ever musical produced by a dance studio in Dehradun, was showcased with 80 participants at the Hari Singh Auditorium, Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy), here. This is the first time any dance studio has taken the initiative to train people of Dehradun for a musical theatrical performance open to anyone in the age group of 6 to 60.

This programme helped Dehradun to expand its cultural perspective through the medium of formal training by professionally trained choreographers. Participants were trained for a month in over 10 dance styles; acting; stage management; show management; property making; and a lot more artistic things required to produce a stage show. Along with this, it will be a great opportunity for participants to perform on stage with an unparalleled experience of elevating and professional training.
