But i used to dance on all hit numbers myself seeing MTV & one fine day in my engg 1st year i danced to aish's tal movie song when i bagged first prize & in all small & big functions of college i started dancing my self without ny training & got good review ,when used to go home for holidays i used to teach my cousins & some small children in my appt for dussera celebration in our colony so that won't make me professional right!! ,it sweet that there is lil bit of tallent which she wanted to make perfect through jalak. bollywood dancing kisi ko bhi aa jata hai agatr interest ho
You know what..in art i find the trained Vs untrained dancer argument ridiculous...if you have passion for sthg..then u will do anything under the sun to perfect it...
When fans try to put down a trained dancer just to defend their celeb...i find it illogical...
of all the contestants only sid, the first 2 eliminations..and shaan ( maybe)...have zero base..DD atleast joined shiamak dawar classes...
Its not abt DD..but the fact that people put down a trained dancer...
So i have to disagree with ur argument,seeing MTV or bogie woogie I could dance exactly the way but not the classical forms or international forms. There are do & don'ts in those dancing & when it comes to free style we can but forms it is very difficult & one more thing i want to say if u are supporting lauren it's fine, iam ain't crazy for any but trained dances are flexible & can easily understand any dance form but untrained one learn it for that while other than that if u ask the level two they don't have answer .
No I am not supporting lauren, but in context of this program...if the concept does not differentiate between participation then why should the bias come in when considering winners...that's my point..and hence i dont get the entire trained Vs not trained debate...
You are doing a quota system..that come apply put in effort...but u can't win..
And by your logic of non dancer..sid shud have won the group..even you would accept...if you can copy tv dance u have inherent flexibility..if you have flexibility you hv the basics..learning dance.,.,,that's what the choreographer is there for...contestant shud show some growth rt?
Now imagine how difficult it is for someone like Sid to dance who doesn't even have the basics?
You get the drift???? and that is precisely the reason why this debate of trained vs untrained and them not deserving to win is flawed.
IF u take drashti's latin american dances they are level 1 dances all are the basic steps learnt during learning process. see learning steps are so hard to see imagine the level 2 dancing od ny latin american dance & definitely lauren can do all those level 2 dancing & further bcz she is trained in those dances heard of them since age 3 she is trained . & DD for a while just like me dances in the baraths function
learning tiuta phoota acts for show
or stage performance or time pass definitely different na.
The point is wat u higlighted and i repeated.. is thr growth.. no!!!... zilch...
she started with lifts..and she is still doing lifts..
was she dancing on her own..no for good freaking 5 weeks..when others were experimenting..
even u know in lifts the male counterpart has to provide stability ..like in salsa the guy leads and although he doesnt look beautiful but the fact is that his job is more difficult in such dances..
so all those dances..salman was providing the strong grip..now tell me what was stopping them from attempting anything but lifts? y shud others not get credit for pushing themselves..
hv u ever noticed in any dance show...contemprory and lifts are the first things everyone learns? because it is easier to get these acts...to learn these steps...instead of doing a simple thing as a jazz walk...because getting that style is difficult..yet other attempted..they tried with various things..
if nothing else atleast they were on dance floor...trying to dance...give them credit for that..
see hema malini she is a diva of bharathnatyam she does a higher level of dancing than who has just done arengatem
or who dances to bharathnatyam numbers for a movies & leave it, So u talk of shamik dawar
so let me tell u last year GC always used to give articles saying iam non dancer, go to his blog in IF & see his carrier he also did shamilk dawar classes & also went to dance classes after shoot of geet with wifey db donno what they used to do
Dont get me started on GC's win... highly undeserving..i made a similar point somewr...
But in DD's case she surely has that passion she is not stiff but definitely donno about comp level dancing or forms. ,she never did yoga or gym so flexibility zero . So shamik dawar classes also there are levels like improving flexibility,aerobics, just to learn basic dancing ,higher level dancing etc. In bangalore even i went in my graduation first year it was first basic dance waming ups ,small bollywood moves, & i wanted to learn salsa so do & don'ts thus ended my learning basic level.so that could have helped her for her music videos but i saw her working busy since 2009 dmg.
Plz dont say working busy...u hv been to a dance class os u know how many working people are increasingly joining dancing..people are pursuing their hobby areas...
I agree she is a determined woman..and not stiff. On her flexibility, I beg to differ..she did a split in the first act itself...how much more flexible can u get?
Lauren is trained since the age of 3
, DD,sana,ekta,shwetha, all have passion & know casual dancing ,basics but no formal higher level dancing. I think 90% girls can sing & dance good or bad
depends on taking it seriously. trained dancers actually is against this format bcz in Us & uk all are untrained or casual dancer celebs participating .
then it is unfair to them rt? if u let thm participate and then come up wid the logic they shudnt win..same for WC...
even if that were true..judges are hardly fair in their judgements to others..
Here in india they brought them to spice up & show the level & interest in the show otherwise general public who will see these casual learners.except fans ,which is really unfair for trained dancers but they have accepted knowing everything .
SYTUCD she ended up 6th so i guess she is sana level dancer competing with them in their own latin americamn ball room dances & popuarity wise.
I wud expect that..but then people got hyper wen i asked this..
