On International Dance Day, actress Gracy Singh shares memories of dancing on the beach
Mumbai, April 29 (IANS): On the occasion of International Dance Day on Wednesday, actress Gracy Singh reminisced about the time when she hit the beach for a dance routine.
The trained bharatnatyam dancer has been a performer since childhood and enjoys dance as an art form the most.
This International Dance Day, the actress reminisced about one of her beach rehearsal sessions.
She said: "Some memories of life touch us like waves. Dancing on the beach was one of the most enchanting and magical experiences for me."
"I was quite delighted to having mastered the art of balancing different postures. The rhythm of the ocean waves became the music and the soft sand felt like a cushion to my feet."
"It is then when I realised that dancing in a natural set-up is so pure and serene."
Sharing some benefits of the famous art form, Gracy said: "Indian classical dance is a very good fitness exercise by itself. The hand movements are nothing but a form of yoga mudras and I practise it regularly."
"Dance is a way of expression, but it also has healing properties. It calms you if you feel stressed. Also, this can be practised even when you are home confined so please adhere to the lockdown norms."
These days, Gracy has been practising dance through video calls with her choreographer and a lot of it is self-choreography too.
Before the lockdown, Gracy took out time from her shoot for &TV's Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein and scheduled weekly rehearsals with her troupe.
