All that’s needed for a memorable Sangeet night.
Want to burn the dance floor on your Sangeet night but have two left feet?!
Dont worry, our super talented choreographer, Rohini Mohan is here to help you out.
After helping numerous brides and grooms, Rohini has carved a niche for her self in the field of Choreography.She makes sure that every dance is memorable!
Nothing is a real competition.
Don’t worry so much about dancing to perfection. As much as they say that it is a night of bride’s vs groom’s side, IT IS NOT. The night is to express your love for the wedding couple through dance. Don’t stress about doing the choreography to the T. Have fun. Making mistakes is part and parcel of the sangeet performances. make mistakes, laugh and have fun on stage!
Look the part.
It’s a night of dancing and very little sitting! Feel comfortable through the night. Wear comfortable footwear, or carry a pair of flats to change into. Light clothes that are easy to groove in. Heavy lehengas and flowing, long capes/anarkalis are a big no-no for a night of dancing and standing. Pin up those dupattas and pallus so they are out of the way. Ladies, make sure to wear waterproof, long lasting make-up. Men, if you are wearing a three piece suit, have a note tucked into the inner pocket of your jacket, with your name on it, for easy identification at the end of the night.
Hydrate and eat smart.
Drink a lot of water through the night. Sangeets are the time we lose a lot of body fluids and energy thanks to all the dancing and jumping around so make sure you drink a glass of water in intervals. If alcohol is a part of the night, make sure you hydrate more to enjoy the night for longer. Food is very important or the next day’s headache could be painful. Like water intake, eat light in intervals. You don’t have to eat everything that is served, but make sure you end the night with a full stomach.
Break the Ice!
Friends and family from all over have arrived. Get social, make new friends and get to know everybody. Make everybody dance no matter which side they are from or who they are to the bride or groom. Let the music take over the night!
Click Away! Take photos of, and with everybody. If you aren't the dancing kind, be the one to capture moments. Use a specific hashtag, a whatsapp group, a group mail or a Facebook album where all these photos are accessible. It’s a good way to revisit the night before the official photos and videos arrive.
Take care. At the end of the night, make sure you have all your belongings - footwear, bags, jewellery, car keys, room keys etc. Do not leave anything behind. As soon as you reach home/ hotel room, take a hot shower to destress your muscles. You do not want to wake up the next day with sore, aching muscles. My advice would be to stretch your body out and apply a lil bit of soothing gel or eucalyptus oil on your neck and shoulders, calf muscles and feet before hitting the bed. Get a good night’s sleep for at least 8 hours. You will definitely wake up feeling refreshed and reenergised and ready to party it up at the next function!
Keep dancing! Xoxo, Rohini.
