Farah Khan Choreography Course (FKCC)

ANYBODY can dance, but not everyone can choreograph, chuckled Farah Khan at the launch of her 12-week chore­ography course in collabora­tion with ITA School of Performing Arts.

She shares six basic steps to become a successful dance director.

Know the difference: Dance and choreography are two different things, contrary to popular perception. The for­mer is a set of moves per­formed by an individual, while choreography is pres­entation of dance and music together.

Be prepared: Don’t walk into the sets like a lost puppy. On a daily average, an approximate Rs.20 lakh is spent on shooting. So, you must plan the entire choreography in advance to have a productive day.

Don’t be a clone: It’s good to be inspired, but try to be original. That’s the only way to make a mark.

Learn editing: As a choreographer, you need to understand the technicalities of editing and how a particular set of instructions could be used to put forward a choreographed number in place.

Keep experimenting: To attain perfection, one needs to be abreast with changing trends. Don’t hesitate to try something new; lay with the props, have fun with editing, experiment with unique steps and let your work do the magic.

Know your artiste: Some are good dancers, and some are not. Salman Khan can’t dance like Hrithik Roshan, but that doesn’t mean he can’t dance at all; it depends on the choreographer to work on one’s weaknesses and make them look good.
