Now i admired another reality show, "Dance India Dance" India's answer to So You Think You Can Dance is here. Dance India Dance, the country's biggest dance competition aired on Zee TV, is produced by UTV Software Communications.
The show will have raw talent of age group 15 to 25 from all over India. Once chosen, the contestants will be trained by professional Bollywood choreographers. Thereafter the participants' will compete against each other. Some of the dances that will be taught to contestants' will be Ballet, Acrobat, Shadow dancing, & Mid-air dancing.
In the initial auditions held across 11 cities in India, 100 contestants were selected. Of these 40 cleared the first round of mega auditions and 18 made it to the finals. The 18 finalists, divided into three groups headed by a master, will now compete for the title.
He has struggled hard to reach the status that he holds today. But now, he wants to give a platform to the young talent of the country, which is what he will do through DID. This is a platform that will transform a ‘dancer’ into a “Dancing Star”. And he is the one behind it. He has great respect for talent and will empathize with the contestants as he understands the pressure they are under. His own “rags to riches” story will be an inspiration for the contestants and a testimony that “hard work” will take them wherever they want to go.
He will also be representative of the Audience & demand that the quality of the dance be high as the audiences deserve to see something spectacular. He will judge straight from the heart (just like the audience does). Initially he will judge the contestants on behalf of the audience and at a certain stage during the show, he will entirely hand over the judgment to the audiences. He will remain to be the Godfather of the contestants.
He is very particular about technique. But he is Mr. Nice and protects the contestants from the harsh remarks of the others. He is the non-filmy Master & has a completely different outlook on performances. His forte is contemporary style, though he also has trained himself in various genres. He is sophisticated and well spoken.

Remo D'SouzaRemo (Master of Hip Hop)has struggled hard to reach where he is today. He was selected by Ahmed Khan to dance in Rangeela and so began his upward journey. Soon he was assisting Ahmed Khan & before he knew it, he was on his own, independently choreographing for films. His forte is Hip Hop, though he has trained himself across many genres.
His struggle has made him a No-nonsense kind of Mentor. He doesn’t have time to be wasted & definitely doesn’t believe in excuses. He is the “tough one’ & has a strong opinion.

Geeta (Master of Indian Classical) has been with Farah for the longest time possible & completely idolizes her. She has done many music videos for Ken Ghosh. Her forte is Indian Classical, specifically Bharat Natyam.
She is a very “Bindaas” kind of Mentor. Her comments are straight up & to the face. She is outspoken but fun. Yet there is a very soft side to her. She will be very loyal to her teammates & build a strong bond with them. She is an emotional person & cries when she feels touched.
