Are you a Born Dancer…Dance India Dance is Back!

Well in my opinion we all dance to the tunes of life. We all manage to move our feet the moment we hear our favorite song. No matter who you are, where you are, everyone at some point of time has danced.
Some are good, some are better and some are exceptional Dancers. That’s what season 3 of DID (Dance India Dance) is all about. People might call it a reality dance show but its not just a dance show, it’s a festival of various dance forms that we have, right from our traditional Bharata Natyam, Kuchipudi, Mohiniyattam,Odissi to western dance forms like Salsa, Hip-hop & Funk dance, Latin dance and an endless list. DID is a dance show where it’s not just a test of talent but also a show where the judges try to teach and educate the dancers and the audience. You might have noticed that after every performance they tell the audience about what is the dance form, where did it originated from , what are the different ways to perform it. Hence this makes this show not just a dance show but a complete dance show.
So Are you ready!!!!!!!! Yes your guess is right; the 3 judges are back with a bang. India’s very own MJ, Mr Remo D’Souza aka Gabbar of Dancing is all set to choose India’s top dancers. To help him do that, we have Geeta Kapur aka Geeta Maa and the charming Terence lewis. All three of them have different style of dancing, all there have vast experience in this area. But the most important thing is that they have a common passion and a desire to present the top performers to the world. The future episodes will surely be filled with some amazing dancers, some amazing stories about how they managed to reach this level.  Am I missing something…? Oh yes Kya Baat Kya Baat. I am sure that you all are excited to hear these words from the man himself…. Our very own GrandMaster, Mithun Chakraborty.Not to forget Jay (Host) of the show who is hot favorite of the Judges for his comic timing.
The auditions have started, and Delhi is the 1st city to face the test. You might not agree to it but I too witnessed few contestants who tried their luck in the previous 2 seasons but failed to impress the judges then. Their passion for dance brought them back to this stage and here they were trying to impress the judges for the third time.Looking at the comments from the 3 Judges one thing is clear that DID is back looking out for exceptional talent, average or good performance has no place in this competition.It’s not going to be easy for the contestants; they have to work their heart and soul out on the dance floor to please the audience as well as the Judges.
Highlights of this first episode of DID was undoutedly the 3 Remo’s dancing together..surprised??? Yes , there were 2 contestants who look alike to our Remo but unfortunately their dance failed to impress him.
Lot more to come on this show and certainly like very other season weekend evening will be booked to watch this show..So guys.. get on your dancing shoes and don’t forget to watch Season 3 of Dance India Dance.  As always we are looking forward to your views and reviews about season 3.
