  • AAFT Brings Twilight Players Back Home

In keeping with its tradition of bringing international universities, education, delegates and artistes from all parts of the world to India, the Asian Academy of Film and Television situated in the Film City in Noida recently brought the world renowned group of dancers, better known as The Twilight Players to its campus. For the trio of Sinbad, who leads the troupe, Jimmy and Ammo, the visit was a sweet come back to their homeland once again.The twilight players, it may be noted here are known for having taken their unique blend of boogaloo, locking and Fifties Street Jazz all over the world and have performed with legendary artistes like Madona, George Michael, Michael Jackson, Wyclef Jean, Kylie Minogue, Gabreille and Sophie Ellis Bextor. An electrifying live wire performance by the troupe at the end of their special week long workshop for the students of cinema and television at the AAFT campus literally mesmerized each and every person present in the hall. Sinbad appreciated the dedication and keenness of the students of the academy, who he said were always yearning for more despite very strenuous rhythmic exercises they had to go through as part of a rigorous training schedule. Thanking the troupe for their excellent inputs for developing the dancing skills of the students, AAFT Director Prof Sandeep Marwah expressed hope that the latter would be able to imbibe the advanced skills imparted by the world renowned dance masters.Prof Marwah also thanked Geeta Handa of cAtomic Media ventures of Mumbai and Sudarshan Pandey, the chief coordinator for the University of Winchester in India, for facilitating the visit of the troupe to Noida.
