South and City College to Launch Course
A Bollywood course will soon be launching at a Birmingham college which is being seen as the first of its kind.
Potential students will be able to “learn the secrets of the fast-growing trade” at South and City College in Birmingham and will be “put through their paces in dance, acting and singing – even taking inspiration from the Bard William Shakespeare.”
The course will involve a mixture of traditional Indian dancing, acting out as characters from novels by Shakespeare and “learn stage combat in a bid to master control of their movements.”
Students will also have the opportunity to showcase their talents at various stages throughout the UK. The course will be taught in both English and in Hindi and is run by The Bollywood Academy based in Digbeth.
Founder Faraz Chouhan, who famously choreographed Boxer Amir Khan’s wedding routine, said, “This is a great breakthrough and achievement for my home city of Birmingham, as it will be the first city in the UK and Europe to offer an accredited course in Bollywood Performing arts.
“These courses will not only help students to obtain a qualification but also helps students build their self confidence and self esteem through performing arts and pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
“With Bollywood movies being screened at mainstream cinemas and weekly Bollywood events taking place across UK and Europe, there is so much opportunity for these youngsters but there are no recognised accredited courses available, hence the need to encourage students to follow their dreams and obtain a qualification in the course and a career they enjoy doing.”
The course is opened to youngsters aged 16 to 18 and will run for 10 weeks. Separate classes will be held for 19-24 years old with similar courses available to 25 year olds.
