As a dancer, Sita performed for ten years as a soloist for Bollywood Brass Band. She trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, contemporary, street, hip-hop, Bollywood, Bhangra and Irish dance. During her time with the National Youth Theatre she contributed choreography to productions and discovered her love of enabling actors to achieve complex choreography working on Spring Awakening at Warwick Arts Centre. Sita completed her Masters in Movement Directing and Teaching (funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council) at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, where she then taught for five years.
Sita’s work as Movement Director on our recent production of The Glee Club was superb. The movement was sensitive, perfectly in tune with every element of the show and meticulously researched. As a director of enormous ability herself, Sita understood the place of the movement within the story and was incredibly quick and adaptable, continuing to refine and integrate the movement as the show grew and changed. Her insight, knowledge and commitment helped to lift our production beyond the ordinary, contributing to the entire production, especially musical numbers that were undoubtedly the high points of the show, and which received rapturous audience response. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a movement director and very much hope to continue to work with Sita in the future.
