MTSG Bollywood ball
Indian Dance Entertainment for Corporate Event at the Lowry Theatre
Each year the Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group (MTSG) host a Summer Ball. In July 2015, Express employees attended the Bollywood themed Summer Ball, which was held at the beautiful Compass Room, in the Lowry Theatre. This amazing venue overlooks the stunning Salford Quays, in the heart of Media City. The MTSG team booked, Manchester based, multi-award winning Ri Ri’s Dance Academy to provide Indian dance entertainment for the evening.
Indian Dance Entertainment with a twist …
Complementing the Indian Summers theme were four of Ri Ri’s incredible male and female Bollywood Dancers who performed a number of extensive dance styles. These included: Break Dancing, Jazz, Contemporary, Ballet, Street Dance and Bhangra. Of course, as the Academy are renowned for Bollywood dancing, since achieving their Bollywood Guinness World Record, traditional Bollywood dance was integrated into the performances too!
Although a range of dance forms were executed they were all performed to hit Bollywood songs. An example of this is the 2014 number 1 song ‘Manwa Laage’, from the Bollywood film ‘Happy New Year’, performed in a delightfully elegant, fluid and expressive Contemporary style. The audience of one hundred and sixty were simply stunned as the Indian dance entertainment, from the Academy, blew all expectations. Ri Ri’s Dance Academy added that Eastern Western twist, keeping it traditionally Indian but with a slice of other styles.
Involvement of the Rochdale Community
Ri Ri’s Dance Academy were involved in all areas of the Corporate Bollywood Pop Music Video. This ranged from the choreography in the Video to the talented team of professional female Dancers, too. Our outstanding Academy, additionally, provided the vocals for the track and ran a number of Bollywood dance workshops for the Rochdale community. Subsequently, the community of Rochdale then had an opportunity to appear in the Pop Music Video itself!
The dazzling costumes worn by Ri Ri’s Dancers in this project were specifically designed for this piece of creative work. Green being the main colour worn by the Dancers to echo the essence of the project, for instance: recycling, the environment and nature.
Ri Ri’s Dancers perform at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Before the Video was released in 2015 (please find the link below), Ri Ri’s Dance Academy were invited to perform the Bollywood recycling song and routine, to a live audience, at a Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority Seminar, held at the Bridgewater Hall, in the city centre of Manchester.
The Rochdale Observer featured this in their Newspaper (27.09.14) with Ri Ri’s Dance Academy getting a mention, too.
