Urvashi tells her forte is contemporary.. Well, I haven't ever seen her doing a decent contemporary routine.. Lets not expect versatality from here because she's still stuck on 'd' of any dance.. But seriously she needs to improve ALOT.. I wouldn't have problem with her if she was growing as a dancer but she's stuck.. I wished to see someone grow as much as Amar did.. Raghav has done a fab job till now.. Hope to see some contemporary or salsa from him.. Sanam was really good till mega audis.. From the gala epi I started disliking him.. And also Remo seems so reluctant to accept any criticism this season which irritates.. Sneha and piyali have shown improvement.. Though not as much as Alisha and Amar.. Waiting to see some good performance..

I think versatility is extremely important in dance, it kind of separates the curd from the whey. But its true, you need to be a master in your genre, there needs to be emphasis on clean lines and less on props and stuff that are less about dance. I hate to make comparisons with SYTYCD because its not fair to DID but I think here I will. The link I posted below is a jazz routine by a bboy dancer called Hok who was only trained in hip-hop and locking but his performance below in a genre so alien to him earned him rave reviews. I would like to see the contestants go beyond their comfort zone and challenge themselves.

Versatility is actually of utmost importance in such concepts. First of all it is a 'general' dance show and not a 'specific' dance show. Secondly, if everyone did the their own thing, we would be comparing apples to oranges. You simply cannot fairly compare apples and oranges, nor can you arbitrarily decide that oranges are better. By including versatility we compare one basket of fruit to another.

 

That is one person maybe good at X dance and the other person at Y dance. Both are extremely proficient at their genre and close to perfection. They get a 10/10 in their respective genre. Without versatility, you are forced two compare two different genres and arbitrarily decide which dance is better than the other. Introduce versatility and you can now get a better comparison.

 

Focus on versatility is not saying jack of all is better. The goal is to challenge dancers and find a fair factor to compare people who may have different genre strengths.
