12 DAYS OF DANCE, CULTURE, FRIENDSHIP & FUN. IMMERSE YOURSELF IN ONE OF THE OLDEST AND RICHEST CULTURES IN THE WORLD
This is our second annual tour to Kerala. Last year's tour exceeded our expectations. I am so excited to have again confirmed Devesh Mirchandani to travel from Mumbai to teach us in Varkala. He is one of my favourite Bollywood choreographers. Susheela Pai is a well reputed Keralan teacher and performer and teaches Bollywood and several forms of classical Indian dance. The classes will be tailored to the level of the group. I ask if you are coming on this tour you come with an open heart and the expectation that changes may occur along the way.
We are going to have so much fun!
