Shobana explores dance for various genres of music

Beginning with a dance choreographed for Johann Sebastian Bach's Western classical music, dancer Shobana explores the music of A.R Rahman and Sufi for classical dances.

For the Western classical music of Bach, her students use the traditional dance anklets. That sets the rhythm for the young students, she says. But it also adds to the Indian classical touch to the western classical piece.

She also presents a few parts from her production Krishna, along with her students.
Is choreography for film music easy? No, says Shobana. Also the dance for the other media like the Television does not give you a large space for extensive hand and body movements, she adds.
