Successful completion of Oyilattam Workshop by Tamizh Thinnai

Oyilattam (Translated as Dance of Grace) is a folk-dance form that has its origins in the southern Tamil Nadu, India.

As an initiative to introduce this traditional dance form to the younger generation, Tamizh Thinnai arranged a Free weekly workshop than ran for Six weeks between Feb 18th – Mar 24th, 2024.

The workshop was conducted by renowned dancer Anisha Vino who has a vast 25 years of experience in dancing and runs the Natyarasa School of Arts in Nottingham. The primary idea of the workshop was for the kids to get together once every week and have a wholesome fun session and to get an opportunity to gain experience about a popular dance form from Tamil Nadu.

We had an enthusiastic group of kids ranging from the age of 6 to 12 who participated with utmost sincerity and passion. It was wonderful to see the little ones move and sway to the rhythmic rustic folk music. The aim of the workshop was to teach the group a complete dance routine for one full song and the kids stood up to the challenge and perfected the dance routine.

The six-week workshop ended with a bang on the 24th of March with a wonderful vibrant performance for the parents by the kids. The kids put their best foot forward and danced with a big smile on their faces. The parents ended with a bigger smile at the end of the event. All kids were handed over certificates as a recognition for their participation in the workshop.
