Fun and fitness with dance 

Members of Millennium Youth had a fun Thursday afternoon spent doing exercises and group activities as a part of Dance Movement Therapy Workshop conducted by Angirra Chakravorty Dasgupta. “This workshop focuses on the movements of our body, which has come to a standstill due to the mobile era. Stress and anxiety are all related to the movements of our body. So when we move, we release a lot of stress. The coordination between the mind and the body is very important; the moment both are synced we function better and that was the focus of this workshop,” explained Angirra.

“What Angirra does is very unique and the dance therapy is a great way to take the youth’s minds off social media and make them relax,” said Ayush Sarda, president, Millennium Youth.
“This event was held to make the youth understand how movements enable us to think and perform better,” said Rachna Prasad, president, Millennium Mams’.

Part of a five-week youth camp, Millennium Youth that functions under the aegis of Millennium Mams’, focuses on activities that youngsters don’t get to experience within their curriculum. “Our aim is to cover activities that are not a part of school and college curriculum. Here, it’s a mix of education and entertainment, which interests the children and benefits them,” said Bishnu Dhanuka, founder-director, Millennium Mams’.
