Shetland Arts is delighted to offer the opportunity for anyone interested in dance to perform with Dance Ihayami who will be visiting Shetland in March.  Dance Ihayami is a groundbreaking Scottish based classical Indian dance company that has captivated audiences in Scotland and abroad for many years.  During the week beginning 15th March members of the company will work in schools during the daytimes and spend the evenings preparing for Thrayaa – Trinity, the final performance at the end of the week.  This performance will use rhythmic footwork and beautiful hand gestures to explore the power of three; satyam shivam sundaram – truth is beautiful.  As part of this performance the company will work each evening during the week with dance enthusiasts who would like to experience Indian dance and take part in the final production.  John Haswell of Shetland Arts said; “we are delighted to be welcoming Dance Ihayami to Shetland.  Not only will the performance be stunning but it is particularly exciting that we can involve the public in the performance.  It is important to stress that the offer to participate is not restricted to those with lots of experience.  Anyone aged 16 and over who is enthusiastic and able to commit to a short, intensive rehearsal period would be very welcome.  This opportunity builds on the work already achieved through the residencies with Lisa Sinclair and Martin Robinson but will explore a totally different style of dance performance.  I hope there will be a huge interest in this wonderful opportunity.”

The performance, which will also feature an input from local musicians, will take place in Lerwick Town Hall.  To register interest in participation or for further details, contact Emily Sharp at Shetland Arts on 01595 743843
