SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Companion illustrates the end of the grief process when loved ones are gone and how one can find solace – in even the smallest of things. We explore this using the idea of a doll (portrayed by one of our dancers) that helps alleviate the loneliness and pain of a girl who has lost her parents to an accident. The doll acts as a metaphor; displaying the happiness and liberation that is hidden in all of us waiting to unleash through moments of relishing childhood memories.
Aakrithi Kumar & Sneha Dudaki (Dynamic Duo)
Opposites attract and The Dynamic Duo are the epitome of exactly that. You can feel Aakrithi’s bubbly personality ricocheting on stage, while Sneha’s graceful delivery will keep you at bay. Don’t be fooled by what you see on stage though; Aakrithi is as feisty as she is bubbly and Sneha has as many pranks as she has moves.
The pair first met in high school and bonded over their love for Bollywood dance.
Their passion for dance transcended over the years through individual and collaborative dance performances. Currently the two are working on their YouTube channel that focuses on showcasing the various faces of Bollywood.
Aakrithi’s interest lies in hip-hop and Bollywood fusion whilst Sneha prefers Indian classical, Bollywood fusion and Indian regional dance styles.
Being self-taught in dance, Short+Sweet is an excellent platform for the duo to take their ideas and choreography to the next level.
A warm thank you to Tarannum, Shubhai, Aspen & Sinelle.
