Teachers and Instructors at Twist N Turns
Dance teachers and Instructors of Twist N Turns.
Dancing, for me, is my life. I cannot think of anything else rather than my dancing. It's like breathing and I enjoy every bit of it. Dance is what through which I can deal with any toughest moments of my life.
From the very beginning, I had a connection with Dance which increased my interest to know more about this art form. I started my journey at the age of three from "Blooming Bud". Then I got myself trained under Anurag Ghosh from Crafts of Kammotion crew. There I learned a lot about Hip-hop dance. After that, I joined Peddro Salsateca in 2012 and since then my Dance career has been changed.
Dance is a journey for me as I understood it's something which lets me be free from anything and I want to encourage as many people as I can to be themselves or find themselves through dance. I have organised Indak, a dance festival, as one of the convenors of Jadavpur University Dance Forum with Sangram Mukherjee guiding us, which consisted first ever dance conference (organised by student body), competition as well as showcase performances by many known crews of Kolkata like Fullstop, Break Guruz, Takht etc.
Dancing since I was 5.. Sometimes in school and sometimes in cultural programs. The slow and steady progress of my passion in the field of dancing has always pushed me forward to learn and experience new styles.... Found myself excelling at being an all-rounder in various zones of dancing such as hip-hop, contemporary and few more I gradually got in the world of Zumba and finally opted for its instructor certification in 2018.
I, Sayan Ghosh was an under average kid back in my school time. One day back in 2008, I danced for the first time in my school annual concert & found myself passionate about something for the first time and I was very much clear with my view about what I needed to do next to grow as a better dancer, choreographer or artist.
I started my training with various renowned instructor, attended workshops, went for a diploma and tried out different styles to give it 100% attention to grow my career.
My mother got me admitted to a dance school when I was very young. Back then I use to go twice a week but gradually it became six days a week. I did not even realise when I fell in love with Dancing and it became my first priority. I started learning Latin American dance forms.
I attended many International Dance Festivals held in different part of India, participated in championships completions and won some of them. Then I did my training in Zumba became a Zumba instructor. Dancing is my first love. It makes my life complete. I cannot think of life without dance.
I started dancing at an early age. It has always attracted me with its beauty and still love the way it makes me feel. Since it was my favorite I was always chasing for more knowledge and that's how I joined my first dance class, practised and later I joined Hybrid crew where I met more people like me we used to share our art and grow together Later I started attending workshops and continued learning this art.
There's a long way to go though...
Dance has been the best part of my life until now. I don't remember how and when the magic of dance conquered me. It all started when I performed my first solo at 5 years old at my school. A huge crowd calling my name cheering for me and there I started my journey of dance.
Slowly I developed it every day from some lovely people I got on this journey with many faculties like Sangram Mukhopadhay, Raj Shaw, Neha Chaudhuri, Mekhola Bose.
I am a curious person, once I get the interest in anything I will keep chasing until the time I conquer it completely. So this is the story of my dance life.
I got introduced to dance by my grandfather at a very young age, doing Kathak. I kept on learning and exploring. The more I explored, the more level of interest got increased, and later that interest turned into a passion and now my life...
Dance chose me, so I decided and said to myself that- "Yes! This is what I am going to do for the rest of my life.. Since then I started practicing and joined a dance school where I learned contemporary, ballet and jazz for almost 4 years. And, this whole journey of dance for me is a rollercoaster ride, which always goes higher and higher.
My first playlist on which I started moving and grooving to was on the songs of Dil Toh Pagal Hai. I had this cassette back then and I used to play it over and over again. My bed would be the stage and I used to dance my heart out.
My Dad found out one day and I was put into a dance school. Kathak was the first dance form I learned.Then in school, I was introduced to other styles of dancing and different forms of music. Folk, classical, ballroom, street style, my favourite Bollywood and so on. Later in college, I got into the College Dance Team and learned from different artists who would visit our college and performed in many events and fests. My love for Salsa grew during my college days. And I further pursued it.
I started dancing at the early age. Did many competitions as well and from then I knew if I could do something good in life then it has to be in Dance. Because whenever I dance there's so much I could express through it, the things which I couldn't express with my words.
Spend almost 4 years of my life with my crew named as " Hybrid Crew ".
Won District level competition together back in 2015.
I feel, in creating dance routines I can make a world where things are done morally and honestly. I started my carrier in classical dance in too early age as a part of Mamata Shankar's troupe. I have completed my diploma on Bharatanatyam as well as on Ravindra Nritya under "Sarbhabharatiya Kalakendra".
Later I got the chance to be an examiner under Bangiya Sangeet Parishad. I also started my own classical institute in 2011. Being a student of Fine arts, I truly feel dance is another art for me which gives peace to my soul and mind too. Thereafter I started my Bollywood and creative dance too along with the classical background. And finally, I got the chance to be certified Zumba instructor in 2017.
