Maria D’Silva – A Life in Dance

Question What advice would you give a young dancer?

Simply work hard on your craft perfecting technique, understand the music, the culture of the people is an important factor, to be able to grasp and respect the art form. It is important to explore all forms of the dance within one that is chosen eg. Egyptian Dance, study the folkloric roots of the dance, classical, baladi, oriental etc. I recommend study from knowledgeable teachers who are willing to share their skills and experiences and who are encouraging. Find your own style and bring out your own personality to make you unique as a dancer and most of all enjoy what you are doing.
