Dhadkan was named so because this entity starts and ends with the thought, mind-set, energy, dynamism and fastidiousness of Ms. Hetal Shah.
Dhadkan was formed as a semi-commercial entity in order to bring in the lights and glory and values of performing arts in the minds of this generation that really does not have any avenue for quality out-door activities in almost all categories AA and AB and AC cities across India.
This effort was initiated by Ms. Hetal Shah as an extension of her teaching and choreography activities across schools in Ahmadabad.
Dhadkan was born to give a platform for all the students - under her and various other dance schools and troupes – to compete in a healthy manner and thereby ascertain their levels in a professional manner and in the process provide quality entertainment to the parents and general public in a genuine aesthetic manner.
This efforts on the last 3 years have snow=balled into a clear movement – which has resulted in annuals events in at least 5 cities in Gujarat – with a steadily increasing fan following and LIKES in the general mass, young students and the ever present social media.
Dhadkan, however even today is focused on the ART and PERFORMANCES rather than selling the ART and the PERFORMANCES.
Going forward Dhadkan would like to establish itself as a platform to ideate and implement great ideas in the field of Dancing and Performing Arts.
