If you are active on social media, you must have come across scores of videos of music and dance recitals, replays of archival records and even contests.
Mylapore’s music and dance teachers who tap into online tech to conduct classes have upped their online teaching.
Mandavelipakkam based Bharatanatyam teacher, Sasirekha Raammohan who runs the Kanakasabhai School of Dance has launched into the online world now. She says, “The lockdown impelled me to learn the technology and use it effectively.”
The parents of her students and the sishyas themselves sought online Bharathanatyam classes and Sasirekha “slowly tried with Skype, Google Meet & Zoom. My students became my teachers when it came to technology. Thus the online classes commenced with studying theory, nuances of tala, dancing adavus, abhinaya sessions & choreography.”
Her senior students studying or settled in different parts of the world also sought classes in Nattuvangam and padams.
Says this dance teacher, “The regularity, sincerity and dedication propelled me further to explore and design a new methodology in teaching techniques. The group sessions on Zoom became a boon for observation of their fellow students.”
These were the trial and error sessions and once Sasirekha was sure of herself she recently launched online classes.
