CHENNAI:  It was a dance inspired by cricket by the queens of a Zumba batch. Inspirations 16 organised by The Swingers Dance Studio to commemorate the troupe’s 16th year was a smashing success on Sunday. With two shows that were sold out at The Music Academy, parents lined up outside the auditorium a good hour in advance before each show, to catch their kids in action. And the little ones certainly didn’t disappoint...

Covering styles that varied from Afrojazz to Broadway to Dubstep - the performances were super and fun to watch with enough energy to go around the room twice over. What also worked for this event, was that traditional emceeing was given the boot. Instead the audience was treated to a sneak preview of what was in store via live dance footage backstage, well before the curtains went up. And of course, as expected there was a mandatory selfie along the way.

The performances that had little ones as young as three years old take the stage showcased an eclectic list of themes as well. Think love, a carnival themed party, and even a Hotel Transylvania-inspired piece, complete with a spine chilling scream. Our favourite was when a class of boys from a school for the handicapped showed off their moves to Pharrell Williams tune Happy. With two professional dancers leading the way, this bunch was hardly as coordinated as the rest, but boy did they pick the right song!
