Bollywood workshops in Goa

The countless stays in Mumbai and the experience with Bollywood film productions have shown that there is a great need for European actors on site.

Pari Productions has decided to go directly to India and to offer BollyDance on Goa. That is why we want to hold auditions and special workshops between January and March every year, tailored to the respective film production. An ideal opportunity for anyone interested to take their first steps to Bollywood on Goa and combine a beach holiday with dancing. If the dates are fixed, you will find all the information you need here.

In this context, the BollyDance Camp on Goa was created, which took place for the first time between January and March 2015. The workshop covers classical Indian dance, Bollwood / Bhangra and oriental dance. Tatjana Wegner is supported by two Indian trainers.

Course of the workshop:

9.00-10.00 a.m .: Good morning yoga
10.00-12.00 a.m .: Dance training (BollyDance), classical dance, Bolly Hip Hop, Bhangra
Noon: Leisure time, beach trips or walks
Afternoon: 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. dance training (BollyDance)
In the evening: Visit to a dance performance in the Dance Temple or Magic Park as well as various beach parties with live music, visit to the annual carnival, massages on the beach, participation in yoga or tai chi courses, etc.

The location is the Samata Retreat Center near Arambol. It is a new facility that was built around a mighty mango tree in a 100-year-old teak plantation. The six cottages are all built of wood in a Balinese style.

Prices for the workshop

Dates: by arrangement. Cost per workshop - 600 €.

Samata Cottages comprises 12 double rooms, 6 single rooms and 2 deluxe suites. All rooms have a luxuriously equipped bathroom with hot water and a balcony. Environmentally friendly rubber mattresses without toxic foaming have been used for the beds and recycled teak has been used for all rooms. The equipment also includes free WiFi and free use of a 144 sqm yoga room. The well-being of the guests is very important to the gang givers.

The restaurant offers vegetarian cuisine from its own cultivation or organic cultivation from central India. There is a Japanese and an Israeli chef who always presents the tasty dishes in new ways.

samata-goaINFORMATION ON THE AREA

The former fishing village of Arambol is located in the north of Goa directly on the Arabian Sea. An ideal place to unwind and to be inspired by new ideas. Body and soul in harmony - this is within reach in Arambol. The architecture of the village is shaped by the former Portuguese colonial rulers, the landscape by the paradisiacal beaches (the longest beach in Goa) and the rainforests of the hinterland.

Bicycle tours, excursions to the famous Ajuna Flea Market, Paradise Beach or Mumbai can also be organized upon request.

If you want to explore the area on your own, there are many options: Taxes are available throughout the village and you can rent motorbikes or bicycles.

The 16 kilometer long beach is divided by interesting rock formations that can be crossed on well-developed paths. These transitions are lined with stalls selling textiles and jewelry. A walk on the beach can also be used for shopping.

If you follow the Teracoal River inland from the beach you will reach the Teracoal Fort on a small plateau and thus the northernmost military fortification of the Portuguese, which has since been converted into a luxurious hotel.

Also inland along a small stream, a path leads to Sweetwater Lake, a freshwater lake that is ideal for swimming. The sulphurous mud on the bank is said to have a purifying effect and blood circulation. Many visitors therefore do not miss this “free” mud pack. Another attraction very close by (about two kilometers into the jungle) is the “sacred banjan tree”. With its gigantic aerial roots, it is used as a meditation center by free spirits and hippies and is definitely worth seeing as a natural monument.

Athletes come to the train right on Sweetwater Lake. Paragliders like to use two 50 meter high hills as a starting point, so they benefit from the thermals around the hills as well as from the winds at the sea. Dolphins can be observed directly on the water from the boats, and numerous providers invite you to observe animals.

Of course you can also explore the whole peninsula from here. Public buses go directly to Mapusa, for example to visit the weekly market. On Wednesdays you can take a boat to Ajuna for shopping at the hippy market, which is known throughout India.

But the place itself has a lot to offer in addition to the sights such as the Catholic Church “Our Lady of Mount Carmel” and the Hindu temple on the beach. The main street and all the paths along the cliffs are lined with stalls selling jewelry, textiles and international restaurants and cafes.
