MUMBAI: On the occasion of International Dance Day on Wednesday, actress Gracy Singh reminisced the time when she hit the beach for dance.
The trained Bharatnatyam dancer has been a performer since childhood and enjoys dance as an art form the most.
This International Dance Day, the actress reminisced her beach practise session.
She said: "Some memories of life touch us like waves. Dancing on the beach was one among the first most enchanting and magical experiences for me. I used to be quite delighted to have mastered the art of balancing different postures. The rhythm of the ocean waves became the music and therefore the soft sand felt sort of a cushion to my feet. it's then when I realised that dancing during a natural set-up is so pure and serene."
Sharing some benefits of the famous art form, Gracy said: "Indian classical dance is an excellent fitness exercise by itself. The hand movements are nothing but a kind of yoga mudras and I practise it regularly. Dance is truly a way of expression, but it also has healing properties. It calms you if you are feeling stressed. Also, this could be practised even when you are home confined so please adhere to the lockdown norms."
These days, Gracy has been practising dance through video calls together with her choreographer and tons of it's self-choreography too.
Before the lockdown, Gracy took out time from her shoot for &TV's "Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein" and scheduled weekly rehearsals along with her troupe.
