One Culture Night
One Culture Night
In October 2018 and 2019, at the Audacious Church in Salford, Greater Manchester, TheGPLUS hosted a stunning evening called One Culture Night, in which Manchester based Bollywood dance company, Ri Ri’s Dance Academy were invited to perform and run a Bollywood dance workshop with the guests. Ria Meera Munshi, Director of the Academy, was leading the fusion Bollywood performance as well as the Indian dance workshop.
In addition to Ri Ri’s Dance Academy taking to the stage, a number of other artists wowed the audience too, such as MC Mark Comedian and Afro Shikisha Zimbabwean Dancers.
The entire evening beautifully promoted diverse talent, heritage, wellbeing and unity and it was stunning to see a range of cultures celebrating each other through various art forms. People of different cultures had the opportunity to share their uniqueness, creativity, skills and passion through media, education and entertainment projects.
Bollywood Dancers in Manchester
Three of Ri Ri’s Dance Academy’s professional female dancers gripped the audience with their fusion Bollywood dance performance, including a number of dance styles such as contemporary, street dance, jazz and, of course, the traditional Bollywood and bhangra dance forms too! The purple and gold, east meets west, Indian dance costumes allowed the audience to see a modern outfit with a tradition twist, particularly with the harem style trousers
Bollywood Dance Workshop
Ria Meera Munshi, celebrity Bollywood dance choreographer, ran a short yet interactive dance workshop at One Culture Night.
