Following the success of its kids dance reality show – Super Dancer, Sony Entertainment Television has announced a new dance reality show where people from the age group of 15 to 30 years can participate. The show titled India’s Best Dancer, is slated to air in February and will be judged by Terence Lewis, Geeta Kapur and Malaika Arora. It will be hosted by comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa.
The auditions for India’s Best Dancer will be held across the country, beginning with Pune today (January 23) at Dnyansagar Institute of Management and Research, SKP Campus, Baner-Balewadi Road.
Sharing a message for the participants of Pune, Terence Lewis said, “For us judges to be impressed this time, the dancer needs to be really special. We have seen so much talent across reality shows, that now we need to see dancers of international standards– those who can actually hold our attention like true performers. It is all the more important as this is the first season of the show, and we want the bar to be raised really high. It’s definitely not going to be easy because I won’t settle for someone who is not the best.”
Geeta Kapur further added, “We live in a versatile country, where every state has its own different culture, and I am sure the participants will also have their own unique styles. I would like to wish each and every participant all the very best. This time around, I want contestants to come forth with more of folk styles like Bhangra or Kalbeliya, or classical dances like Mohiniattam, Odissi, Kathak or Bharatnatyam to this stage. Hopefully, contestants will also give Bollywood dance the respect that it deserves. The idea is not just to mesmerise us with flips and stunts but to present to us with dance in its absolute truest form!”
