AVIKK

From Live Shows and Theaters to International TV shows, From a Solo performer and Trainer to a International Award winning Choreographer, from a Director and Producer to a International Judge, Avikk has a already has a list of Multiple Countries, he has Traveled and got invited to. Apart from touring for Performances to giving different Workshops, Avikk has Judged Dancing, Singing and even Modeling Shows.
 
 
Being a Versatile Performer and Professional Dancer, when Avikk entered the Social Dancing field, he noticed a very common thing and that ultimately inspired him to go beyond to conceive and deliver this Unique but universal Duet Dancing and Partnering workshops.
So what he observed is a big gap between the Professional Performers and Social Dancers. 
 
The Social Dancers in the Social Dancing events were just amazing while Dancing and were so open to walk upto anyone to ask for a Dance. However this almost changes upside down when they are in the performing or specially in other casual parties.
Similarly and Vice-versa with the Professional Dancers.

So observing and realizing these limitations of Styles and even music, Avikk started integrating the Physical, Spiritual and Theoretical aspects of Duet and Partnering with the Social Dancing Techniques. This ofcourse gave it a much more Universal approach and results. The aim was to be able to feel, execute and perform from a event to a Competitive level while at the same time, learning to improvise in all or any partnering and duet as a Social dancing, irrespective of the prison of any style or music.

 

From making Social Dancing more Universal and boundless, Avikk's classes have been so much preferred by the professionals, competition participants and even the Teachers. He has traveled multiple countries for giving workshops and Judging International Shows/Competitions. His long professional background, experiences  and achievements in variant International Stages acquired him not only a huge Technical knowledge but his own Tools also, which opened the door for more deeper understanding, awareness and possibilities of Partnering in any to all form of Duet Dancing.
