Dance Away Your Lockdown Blues

Dancing is the purest form of expressing happiness and celebration.

“Birthday hai toh Dance Karlo, Wedding hai toh dance karlo, Festival hai toh dance karlo,  Lockdown hai toh bhi dance karlo”

 Dancing is a medium of expression and a natural coping mechanism  for our mental well being which dates back to the time when humans lived in nomadic civilizations. Humans first started dancing 5000-9000 years ago even before we started talking. Which is one of the primary reasons that multiple individuals  have embraced it over the course of the lockdown as it helps alleviate their stress, and brings joy.

Dancing away the Lockdown-

We thought of compiling some fun dance videos  recorded to beat the lockdown blues & to inspire all of you to keep dancing as we sail through this tough time .

 In these times a lot of people, dancers and non-dancers  alike have turned to dance. Everyone from families in their homes to doctors, policemen and even medical staff in hospitals have taken up dancing for its immense mental and physical benefits.
