Dance for stamina, says ace choreographer Ashley Lobo

Ace choreographer Ashley Lobo has a passion for dance not just as a transportive art form but as a transformative discipline for the young. This is why last year, even during the lockdown, he continued to offer online classes and workshops to motivate and inspire students through his academy, The Danceworx.

Ashley says, “When dancers start young, their bodies and minds are far more receptive and it is a joy to see them leap from one milestone to another. There is nothing wrong with starting late but if the basics have not been established correctly, it is harder for the student to grow to the next level of ease and expertise.”

He adds, “I can say this from experience that dancing is the perfect antidote to lethargy, negativity and accumulated unreleased emotions. Even if you don’t want to pursue dancing as a career, it is a perfect creative hobby to expend energy, build confidence, develop stamina and a sense of rhythm from a young age. It is also a very healthy mode of self-expression. Dancing inculcates a work ethic, and prepares the young to take failure in their stride.”
