Story About the beginning
A year back, we were getting ready for Ganesh Chaturthi Pooja (to be held at a friends place). Like every day, I had a Bollywood song playing on the TV. I started dancing on ‘Bole chudiya’ and Aira watched me and started copying me. She quickly picked up my steps, remembered them and above all enjoyed it so much.
I wanted to make a proper dance video with her. This was a running thought for quite a while. As soon as we were back from our 2 months trip to India, I started exploring songs, camera settings, video editing etc. At the beginning of the year, I created her social media accounts and in March, we published our first dance, it was more for fun, and we just went with the flow.Every video has been a learning, challenging Aira with more difficult steps (and she amazed me every time), trying different camera settings/angles, looking for different wall decors, matching outfits.It’s amazing that in just a matter of 6 months, we have created 10 mother-daughter dance videos (and getting ready with the 11th one) and the amount of love, appreciation and blessing you all have been showering is overwhelming.— Shalini Saxena (Aira’s Mom)
