Dance Auditions for Tarantismo

Tarantismo is on the lookout for passionate dancers for the newest production unblocked that will tour the country.

Tarantismo means the “uncontrollable desire to dance”, and this is reflected in the Creative Dance Company, founded by Arati Punwani-Sunawala , that is dedicated to sharing the joy of dance through classes and the power of dance through their performances. After 5 years of successful shows, this year the Tarantismo production gets even bigger!  

The members of Tarantismo believe that movement is the earliest and most natural form of communication and dance is used by the Company as a medium to express ideas, tell stories and raise questions. Tarantismo has put up public performances at regular intervals. Each performance has been centered around a different theme –

‘Seven’ revolved around the digit and it’s various representations from deadly sins to the colours of the rainbow.  

‘Traffic’ was a socially poignant view on the causes and solutions to Bangalore’s crumbling traffic management that received huge coverage and response.  

‘Senses’ dealt with sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.  

‘Geometry’ was a compilation of dance vignettes named after ordinary shapes communicating a variety of stories, ideas and themes - from marriage to peer pressure, politics to addiction.

Tarantismo conceptualizes and choreographs corporate events, and has worked with companies like Accenture, Coca-Cola, Hewlett Packard, Wipro, Levis and many more.  The members of Tarantismo have a great passion for children and have taught dance / movement in various educational institutions in Bangalore such as National Public School, Vidya Niketan, Vidya Shilp & Bangalore International School. Tarantismo was the first company to introduce Belly Dancing to Bangalore, and recently they introduced JUMP! - a Trampoline Fitness and Freestyle Dance class.

Arati Punwani-Sunawala  the founder of Tarantismo is a freelance dance choreographer who shot to national fame as one of the four finalists on the reality dance show Dance Dance. She also owns and runs her own dance troupe,Tarantismo Creative Dance Company. Having done her degree in dance, she is trained in styles like Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Belly Dancing, Bollywood and Indian Contemporary dance. Arati conducts dance classes and workshops both in the country & abroad.

Tarantismo is looking for talented, passionate performers for their new project unBlocked set to tour the country.
