Performing in front of people may seem terrifying for some, but it’s a wonderful way to express yourself and learn to tell a story engagingly. And if you take it to the next level, you get improvisation - broadening your mind and forcing you to think out of the box.

4. Relax and Learn the Art of Brush Lettering

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love scrolling through Instagram and seeing calligraphy and hand lettering videos. They’re so satisfying and relaxing to watch, and now, you can be the person doing it instead of simply watching! It’s fun, cathartic, and stimulating, and a great way to let your creativity shine. 

5. Prepare for All the Post-Lockdown Parties and Learn to Dance

Date: 13th September

Time: 5PM Cost: Rs.399

Host: Dhanashree Verma (https://www.instagram.com/dhanashree9/)

Your dance moves pre-lockdown may not have been the best, so why not take advantage of the months you now have to perfect them? Attending a dance class may be intimidating, but the chance to do so from the comfort of your home make it far easier, and with amazing dancers like Dhananshree Verma teaching, it’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
