Bollywood’s director – choreographer par excellence Farah Khan has joined hands with Shashi Ranjan’s ITA School of Performing Arts, to design a first-of-its-kind Choreography course in India. Named the Farah Khan Choreography Course (FKCC) it will be available in The ITA School centres in Mumbai, Jaipur & Indore currently and then extend to other cities across India.
The association promises to yield tremendous results, as Farah Khan brings to table her enormous acumen and experience at a truly meritorious house of learning Performing Arts. The course will be a first-of-its-kind with the syllabus and workshops designed by herself. It will help students create dance sequences on screen by providing them the requisite grounding in the technicalities of camera, edit and composition.
Shashi Ranjan says, ‘We are proud of forming this association with Farah Khan, as it would usher in a new era in learning at the schools as a top flight training centre for Performing Arts. Her vast experience and multifarious accomplishments would really impart a cutting-edge grooming to the trainees here. Together, we are sure to go a long way in serving the Industry in its dire need of trained talent!’
Says Farah Khan, “I’ve been choreographing for films for the last 25 years and though starting only dance classes has never excited me, the idea of compiling and developing a choreography course was thrilling. It was great to get an institution like ITA School, with its reputation and reach to support and partner in on this endeavour. The FKCC is a first- of- its- kind in India and will literally teach students how to conceive, choreograph and shoot a film song because “anybody can dance, but not everyone can choreograph!”
