Following the success of its kids dance reality show – Super Dancer, Sony Entertainment Television will now give a platform to talent over 15 to 30 years of age through India’s Best Dancer. Slated to air in February, the show promises to offer a visual spectacle over the weekends this year!

What’s more, the show will have 12 mentors from the dancing fraternity to groom the talent that gets selected in the show.
The auditions of India’s Best Dancer will be hosted across the country inviting talent to put their best foot forward and participate in the show. The first audition of the show was held in Kolkata on 11th Jan at Sister Nivedita University DG 1/2 New Town, Action Area 1 (Beside RabindraTirtha), Kolkata, with its culture has been largely influenced by dance and music. From Gambhira to Kushan dance, Kolkata is known for its lively, vibrant and colourful dance performances like Chhau which is one of the most renowned form in West Bengal. So, what are you waiting for? If you think you are the best, don’t rest till you get through the auditions of India’s Best Dancer!
Judge Terence Lewis shared this message for the participants of Kolkata, “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!”
Judge GeetaKapur 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 mesmerize
