My best friend was getting married in India and while thinking of what to do for his wedding, I realized I had to do the one thing that I detested – getting on the dance floor. Me and my other friends in Canada and Boston talked it over and we thought it was a good idea. It can’t be that hard to choreograph our own moves and just do them.
Somewhere in the middle of me attempting to be the girl in the dance and us switching songs for the 10th time because we still couldn’t get anything to work well, we realized we needed help and we needed it quick because the wedding was 2 weeks away. We contacted Mridul and she immediately jumped on the idea telling us that she’d have a dance video ready for us the next morning.
True to her promise, the next morning we got 2 videos from her – one a quick version of the entire dance, how it would finally look like and another which was a step-by-step breakdown of the different moves broken into 2 separate videos where she went really detailed into the steps. A little bit of back and forth and small changes to the steps – all of which Mridul was very receptive to, and we were ready to go. Also important to note that she was very open to any suggestions from us and it felt great to be able to make small modifications to the steps and she would redo the video with the new steps to show us newer versions whenever we made suggestions.
We practiced her steps for a few days ourselves and we were ready to perform! On the day of the Sangeet, I was surprised how well coordinated we all ended up being even though we had never practiced together. Mridul’s breakdown of the dance moves were perfect since they took into account having room for other dancers and also individual steps for individual dancers. I highly recommend Mridul and any WDD crew to anyone who needs to have their wedding dances choreographed – she is an amazing teacher and you will come out of it with some great memories and experiences!
