Glenn Sharp - Chairperson

Teacher

As a full-time teacher and senior leader at a school in east Kent, I have organised many themed events especially in the arts, languages and culture. It was in this capacity that I met Sujata Banerjee over a decade ago. Over the years, Sujata delivered some highly memorable Kathak dance workshops and performances with our children , including a special performance of ‘Draupadi’ which is still being talked about several years later.

I was honoured to have been asked to become chairman of SDBC and have seen it grow from strength to strength under Sujata’s guidance, care and high levels of creativity and expertise. SBDC students now regularly perform and compete in highly prestigious events such as the BBC Young Dancer competition. Having recently been in the audience at part of the Hemantika season in London, an international program which Sujata led and coordinated in both Barcelona and London, it was clear that the standards of excellence and fabulous performances of the SDBC speak for themselves.

Management consultant

SBDC is an accomplished charitable organisation, bringing South Asian dance to the forefront of the dance arena through its varied set of activities.  Being involved as both a student and trustee for more than seven years, I have been proud to see SBDC undertake and successfully deliver a number of innovative projects ranging from traditional performance to collaborative projects as well as leading-edge events such as a 12-hour dance marathon. Having personally commenced learning Kathak at the age of 24, I firmly believe it truly is never too late to learn this multi-dimensional, intricate dance form.

 

The team of trustees meet regularly to review achievements and learnings, brainstorm new ideas and strategically plan the company’s direction.  As a management consultant by profession, I thoroughly enjoy bringing new ideas and concepts to the table and working with a talented group of individuals to help maximise the Company’s performance and deliver against our mission statement in everything we do.

Senior leader, insurance & healthcare

I initially studied classical musical at Cardiff University and am a huge supporter of the arts. As someone who understands the discipline and the the resulting joy that the performing arts can add value to people's educational ability and wellbeing, I am excited about the impact that SBDC has had through exposure at a number of key performances and look forward to helping support the future growth of nurturing talent at SBDC.

I learnt Kathak from Sujata Banerjee for a number of years and am very passionate about classical dance and the arts and supports them as much as possible. As part of the SBDC trustees team, I hope to spread the cause of SDBC as well as continue to expand the art form through multiple channels.
