Thiruvananthapuram, March 23 (IANS) Techies at Thiruvananthapuram’s Technopark will now relieve their stress by dancing - all thanks to an exclusive dance class.

Dance forms like Western Freestyle, Hip Hop and Salsa would be taught to interested techies by tutors who include two women and five men, all qualified dancers.

Thiruvananthapuram-based Elements Consultants Company will help the techies destress and to improve their physical and mental fitness.

Rejeth Raveendran, who heads Elements Consultants Company, said the classes start from this Saturday and will be conducted at the Technopark Club.

“The response has been excellent. We never thought on day one that we would get these many (35) applicants. Classes will be held only on Saturdays and Sundays and each session would last an hour,” said Raveendran.

“Dancing is one of the best stress relievers and, believe me, it could be learned by anyone who has never ever taken a dance step. After a three-month session with us, we will make each techie fit to take part in any dance competition,” said Raveendran.

The fee for learning the basic course is Rs.1,000 per month. The dance form of Salsa will be taught only for techie couples and it would cost Rs.3,000 for a couple.

Technopark campus is home to more than 25,000 techies besides other staff members.
