“You can't move outside but you can move inside. It gives mankind a chance to enjoy the treasured gift of music, visually. To keep my dance community-engaged I’m teaching more kids than adults currently. Cause at a time like this they need more attention and care," says Kanchi Shah.

For someone who has been on the dance journey for the last 14 years. Kanchi feels that dance can bring people together. "All dancers and choreographers, nationally and internationally have come together on social media. And are sharing their choreographies, ideas which are being followed by everyone eager to learn dance or just enjoy themselves.” Says Kanchi Shah, who has been spearheading Two Right Feet for the last 7 years.


With the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, streets are empty, businesses are closed, and the hustlers are indoors. The world may seem paused, but it never truly freezes. Dancers like Kanchi Shah are finding ways to continue spreading the joy of dancing through Live Sessions, E workouts, Zoom classes. Broadcasting on E-channels has become the new classroom for all dance enthusiasts.

Dancing is one of the few ways to stay connected and moving during these difficult times. So Rejuvenate your minds, enhance your mood, get fit, and shake up those neurons. Today dance is travelling across borders, religions, mindsets, and bringing the citizens of the world together to Stay Positive and Optimistic during COVID -19.
