In February this year Jazzy Masala Creative caused a stir at the Lyric Theatre in Gold Reef City, with a sold out show and standing ovations. Following public demand, they are back to create a sensation with a two day run of their new production Dansation. On September 19 and 20th, at the Lyric Theatre, Jazzy Masala Creative will entice with its stylistic innovation, dazzling costumes and talented dancers.
Created by Versha Magan, producer, creative director and choreographerof the Jazzy Masala Academy, Dansation draws its choreography from a diversity of styles including Bollywood, Classic Indian, jazz and hi-hop. It is a swirl of colour, movement and music, innovative, trendy and entertaining. Audiences who went home wanting more in February won’t be disappointed by this ambitious new production.
Magan is commited to shining the spotlight on the Indian performing arts, which are often overlooked in South Africa. Evidence of this commitment lies in her decision to leave behind a lucrative career in the corporate world to channel her passion and resources in the training of young dancers, giving them an opportunity to excel while instilling a culture of team-work, leadership and self determination.
“Local talent needs a great platform and appreciation by the public. Dansation for me is yet another stepping stone to creating versatility with movement and Indian Dance. With a cast of over a 100 dancers, what we are presenting is diverse, magical and sensational. Dance brings out various moods when performed and observed by an audience. Our aim is to leave the audiences awestruck.”
