We at SDIPA are excited to announce the 25th year of Shiamak's Summer Funk!
SHIAMAK Summer Funk started in 1994 as a workshop where students from ages four to eighty-four learnt their favourite dance styles and performed on stage in front of the live audience. Shiamak found the stage as his second home and wanted to share the joy of dance and stage performance with one and all. He firmly believed that everyone who had the interest could dance. Today, as the world celebrates the Silver Jubilee, a glorious legacy of 25 years, the impact has been phenomenal.
The Summer Funk stage has been home to many stars. In fact, many stars were born on this very stage and often visit back to a place they call closest to their heart. The likes of Sushant Singh Rajput, Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor, Ishaan Khattar and many more have been a part of Summer Funk. The next generation of Bollywood is also actively participating in this show based workshop.
A dream that began in a studio with seven students is today a global phenomenon. A stage that makes dreams come true has positively impacted society at large. A mission that started off as "Have Feet. Will Dance." has extended to " Have Spirit. Will Triumph." 25 is a tribute to his spirit of making dreams come true, creating milestones, making memories and creating a community where everyone speaks the language of dance.
We eagerly look forward to your participation in this year's Summer Funk to make it a truly spectacular event!
