Kumar, who trained and worked for seven years under the guidance of Prasanna Kumar, director of The Swingers Dance Company, recently returned from the US, where he underwent further training at the Broadway Dance Centre, New York, in contemporary, jazz and hip hop styles of dance. Viscosity has classes in various styles of dance forms like Street Jazz, Jumps and turns, Jazz Fusion, Improve Jam for the first time in Chennai. They also teach zumba, salsa, contemporary and Hip Hop.
Talking to CE about the academy, Kumar says, “People are now a lot more aware of the various kinds of dance. Earlier, the most sought after dance were street styles like hip hop, but now people are eager to experiment and learn something altogether new. Viscosity is looking at making dance more simple. We have flexible classes for all, apart from the professional courses for various levels.” Kumar has also trained under choreographers of the famous dance reality show So You Think You Can Dance like Sonya Tayeh, Brian Friedman, Dee Caspary, Chaz Buzan and Talia Favia.
