Through LDI, Sai and Kirthi plan to make dance & fitness a daily ritual for any individual irrespective of their age or vocation. They aim to provide fun and constructive stress busters. And most importantly to provide a window of opportunity to eager youngsters who would like to pursue (Western) Dance professionally in terms of training & exposure at International Dance platforms. A dearth of which was deeply felt by the Indian duo as they strived to establish their Salsa career internationally.
Sai and Kirthi’s Dance Route
Hailing from regular & conventional Indian homes their path as dancers, though encouraged, required of guidance. Their path as Professional Salsa dancers began late as compared to their International counterparts. In a country, where the language of dance is restricted to the classical forms, or the ill-defined western or filmy dancing. Sai & Kirthi have mostly self taught themselves the Latino dance styles ranging from Salsa, Meringue, Rumba, Bachata and Jive.
As they entered the International arena they realized the specialized role that fitness & diet played in dancing. Instead of feeling intimidated & overwhelmed the duo re - started from scratch. Paying attention to the smallest of details, in terms of dance techniques, rooted in western classical forms like Ballet & Jazz. And a dancer’s diet & fitness level which again is markedly distinct from regular fitness criteria.
Fortunately Sai & Kirthi have received support for their maiden venture from their International counterparts, families and friends, who have witnessed their unrelenting hard work and believed in their indefatigable passion for dance. This has resulted in the conception of Latin Dance India (LDI) which is a collaborative effort between the Indian duo and their alma mater Latin dance Australia.
The Dance Company also has a professional dance troupe which offers live performances & productions for corporate events and has been doing so for the past three years.
