Kaizan Shakti shows versatility
Kaizan Shakti Dance Company held their annual show on November 16 at the Learning Resource Centre at UWI, St Augustine.
Falling under the spotlight were the junior dancers from the company’s classes in Avocat, the Divali Nagar site, Caura Road Community Center and Tunapuna Hindu School.
The company’s artistic director Katana Mahabir showed off the group’s versatility as it presented a fantastic range of dance styles, ranging from religious to semi-classical, film, African and local.
Guests performers on the evening were former National Council for Indian Culture (NCIC) Youth Champ Amit Dookram, as well as former Chutney Soca Monarch, KI Persad.
In a release from the dance company, its manager Satesh Mahabir, credited the versatility of the dancers.
Mahabir who is also the host of 106.5 FM’s Morning Panchayat programme, praised the group’s focus on performing at events throughout the year as the platform for the solid growth.
Some of the events at which Kaizan Shakti appeared included Ladies Night Out at the Jean Pierre Complex, Chutney Brass at Guaracara Park, Fuad & Friends All-inclusive at Pier One, Chaguaramas, the Rainbow Dance Festival and this year’s Divali Nagar. Another great achievement for the group was making it to the finals of this year’s Prime Minister’s Best Village competition for a third consecutive time.
Preparations are already underway for Kaizan Shakti Dance Company’s 2014 concert, with proposals to make the event open to the general public.
