Brief Introduction to Gymnastics
The sport of Gymnastics requires superior body flexibility and strength that comes with regular training from a trained Gymnast. In Delhi, as is a popular fact, the infrastructure for such sports is very limited and despite us having a lot of manpower, we as a country have never done anything outstanding in any of the acrobatics fields. This is not because we can’t do it, it is because we haven’t ever been given the opportunity. China, exactly like India a few decades ago was the highest medal winner in the last Olympics because of their newly developed infrastructure and focus on sport.

The Trainer and Infrastructure at Delhi Dance Academy
At Delhi Dance Academy we have got together a fine instructor and high class infrastructure to give preliminary Gymnastics training to men and women of all ages (from children above the age of 3 to adults up to the age of 50). The facilities include 4 x 6 feet height x 3 feet width x 4 inch thick mattresses specially designed for shock absorbing to protect students, 1 big bus tyre tube used to gain thrust for jumps, protective equipment for elbows and knees and helmets along with yoga mats, protective hard mats. The following image shows you what the studio typically looks like.
The trainer is Arman Safa who hails from Afghanistan and has won various medals in Gymnastics including the Gold Medal from the Olympic Committee in Afghanistan. He is also a Gold medalist in Kung Fu and was a national player of Fencing. He started off gymnastics in India as a hobby at a park in Malviya Nagar and soon developed a huge fan following of about 20 students who started practicing regularly with him. On starting with Delhi Dance Academy, Arman has been giving regular Gymnastics sessions at the South Delhi Amar Colony center of Delhi Dance Academy.
Syllabus for Level A Certificate Course:
Until we come up with more professional videos, the following video shows a first month class in action with students doing jumps in the first month itself. These students are not sportsmen or dancers, but normal people working in ordinary jobs.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.
In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)
At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.
Delhi Dance Academy has been featured on 24 x 7 News Channel as one of Delhi's best dance institutes. We have made recent appearances on TV Channels like Aajtak, E TV, NHK World, MTv and NDTV Goodtimes. We are among the top 50 activities to do while in Delhi by TripAdvisor with excellent reviews.
