Welcome to the Youthellennium Dance Academy (YDA), thank you for showing interest to know about us. Since 2006, YDA has been striving to build a positive and healthy environment across Mumbai and Navi Mumbai (Maharashtra) by engaging the society in one of the purest art-forms, dancing. YDA is renowned for offering diverse array of dance disciplines for enthusiasts of all age groups (above 4 years) with its branches situated at premier locations across Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.
YDA trains its students to develop confidence and discipline in the dance of their choice, apart from introducing them to different dance forms to develop a taste of every form. YDA teaches almost every dance form that is used today, like Bollywood, Freestyle, Hip-Hop, Latin, Jive, Salsa, Ballroom, Popping-Locking, Belly Dance, Contemporary, Folk Dances etc. YDA has organized many events to showcase the talent acquired over the years. It has also performed in many events and is considered one of the best in the city.
History of the Academy
The Youthellennium Dance Academy is the brain-child of choreographer Mr. Ranjan Sharma. The history of the academy is almost as old as Mr. Ranjan himself, as he was keen to take-up dancing as his profession since his childhood days. Further to his exposure to different dance forms in india, he performed in various dance shows and also in his own stage shows which garnered praise from the local media and the society. He was hailed as the "Michael Jackson of city by local media and praised his hard work and dedication for the art-form. Mr. Ranjan intended to extend the horizon and to elevate the dance form to a new level by engaging the society in this art. Reconnaissance of the local dance groups revealed that dance academies which offer wide dance disciplines are sparse in number in Mumbai. This encouraged him to form Youthellennium Dance Academy to cater to the dancing needs of the society and to build a better dancing platform for all, irrespective of their age. The Academy was formed in 2006 with its first branch at Mumbai. With a brief stint in Mumbai, another branch was opened in Nerul, Navi Mumbai. Thanks to the friendly and healthy environment in YDA, the popularity rose every year and it is now home to more than 400 dance enthusiasts of all ages at about seven (and increasing) branches. With branches in different parts of the city, YDA is growing every year with rapid pace. In 2011-12 season alone, over 1500 students were trained in the academy.
It is a duty of the citizen to return to the society which has encouraged him in every walk of life. YDA is doing its bit of the responsibility by involving kids who are under-privileged or special in the academy "free of cost". These kids are taught about the basics of dancing in their neighbourhood, so that they need not travel anywhere. The dance classes have certainly brought relief and hope to the kids who are deprived of the aristocratic environment which other kids of middle and higher classes enjoy.
Youthellennium Dance Academy has trained many employees for annual events at the various organizations. The organizations have come forward to sponsor such dance events to encourage their employees to avoid stress at work and for better health. Also various schools and colleges are showing interest to train their students in various dance forms for annual and bi-annual events. Such sponsors include (and not restricted to) Reliance Infra, Aditya Birla Group, JB Boda Group, Talwarkars, Bal Bharti Public School, DY Patil International School, KidZee, Little Scholars Play-n-Nursery.
The list is growing and with each month, YDA is succeeding in getting the society fitter and better!JOIN US TO FORM A HEALTHIER AND BETTER SOCIETY!!
