Choreographer turned director Farah Khan, who has choreographed some iconic songs in showbiz, now plans to take her creative expertise a step further.��Khan has joined hands with Shashi Ranjan�۪s ITA (Indian Television Academy) School of Performing Arts to design a one-of-a-kind choreography course in India.
The course named ‘Farah Khan Choreography Course’ (FKCC) is a 12-week program that��will be available in ITA School centres at Mumbai, Jaipur and Indore currently, and later extended to other cities across the country. This course is unique,��with the syllabus and workshops being designed by Khan herself.�ʉ��We have sat down and formed 12 weeks�۪ course which will literally teach you how to edit a song, how to use costumes, lenses, camera to going on the location to figuring out how to choreograph a song. So from practical knowledge to theory, everything will be covered,� Khan said, according to Bollywood Hungama.
She further added,��”I’ve been choreographing for films for the last 25 years and though starting only dance classes has never excited me, the idea of compiling and developing a choreography course was thrilling. It was great to get an institution like ITA School, with its reputation and reach to support and partner in on this endeavour. The FKCC is a first-of-its-kind in India and will literally teach students how to conceive, choreograph and shoot a film song because “anybody can dance, but not everyone can choreograph!”
Excited about their new venture, Ranjan opined that the��association with Khan would usher in a new era of learning at the schools, & that her vast experience and multifarious accomplishments would impart cutting-edge grooming to trainees.
Khan is known for her big budget, star-studded films like ‘Main Hoon Na’ (2004), ‘Om Shanti Om’ (2007), ‘Tees Maar Khan'(2010) and ‘Happy New Year’ (2014). Reportedly, her next directorial venture will be a woman-centric film that is not star-driven.
