Mr. Rahul D’lima has spent the last 20 years making mesmerizing dance routines and making a huge difference in the lives of those he taught. He truly believes in quality and purity in movement and encourages individual expression and creativity.

For the last seven years, TRDC is spending their precious time and knowledge training the youth of Bombay, in Jazz, Funk, Contemporary, Modern and Ballet. They run their studio at St. Josephs Convent in the very heart of Bandra and also conduct kids batches at Hungry Minds in Andheri West.
Now he brings a workshop on Tap Dance for all you in the heart of South Bombay!
Tap Dance is one of the most popular dance styles in the west. It began as a social dance in the Jazz bars of New Orleans, later it was made popular by many shining stars of Hollywood such as Gene Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire and others. It is one of the best dance styles for all ages as it gives you a thorough understanding of rhythm and syncopation. It will bring to you agility, confidence and style. Rahul D’lima has trained extensively in India and in the UK. His teachers include some world legends like Jason Samuels Smith (USA), & Nina Ozhegova (Russia).
Currently he is being mentored by world-renowned tap dance sensation – Andrew Nemr, who himself was mentored by the legendary Gregory Hines. With this lineage of teachers, this workshop with Rahul D’lima is an absolute must!!! His journey in Tap dance began 2 decades ago, when he walked into a rehearsal with Mr. Oscar from the Oscar-Vijay duo and was mesmerized by the ease and rhythm of this form. There was no looking back after that. He learned the basics with Oscar, and that fuelled his passion to train in this dance form in every country that he went.
In this workshop students can look forward not only to a fun and energy packed class, but also to learning the basic vocabulary of tap from a man who has trained the likes of Abhishek Bachhan, Antara Mali, Asin, Aliya Bhat and many other film stars.
Sunday the 7th of May will be your introduction to tap dance and one step closer for D’lima to bring Tap dance to anyone who has happy feet!!!
