From hip hop to Kathak, nothing is too difficult for eight-year-old Shourya Jain, who has become a celebrity back home in Seoni, Madhya Pradesh. The youngster recently made her TV debut with dance reality show Dance Deewane, and needless to say, left the judges in awe of her.
This class third student has never taken any dance lessons but has taught herself various dance forms through practice. From hip-hop, Bollywood, Contemporary to Kathak, she’s adept at all the dance forms and effortlessly teaches people of different age groups as well. She started dancing when she was barely three years old, and she has been taking dance lessons for her neighbourhood for about two years.
In a video shared by TV channel Colors, Shourya’s students couldn’t stop talking about her classes. “Shourya teaches us very patiently,” said one of the students. According to the student’s mother, “Shourya teaches everybody with so much love that kids never miss any of her class.”
“Dance is my passion and I love teaching others. I teach dance to both kids as well as elders,” said Shourya. But it isn’t just kids who come to her class, but sometimes elders do too.
Though Shourya got eliminated from the dance reality show Dance Deewane, her stint gave her a legion of fans, including actress Madhuri Dixit and film director Shashank Khaitan.
