Strut Your Stuff--Online Bollywood Dance Competition!

I know it's been a little longer than usual since I've posted but school started last week and I've been bogged down with homework :(. Still, I'm super excited because I get to start my in-house nursing clinicals this semester!Yay!! Stick with me, though...I'll still try my very hardest to get at least one post up per week--I'm currently working on a review for "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" and should have it up in the next couple of days. :)

In the meantime, here's something really fun I thought you guys would want to know about: Vin from Saavn gave me the scoop on a Bollywood Online Dance Competition their website put together, sponsored by Verizon. Get this--Anyone can upload either a new or existing video of themselves dancing to any Bollywood song. The voting committee will review all submissions and choose a winner mid-October. That winner will get an opportunity to dance in a major Bollywood film releasing in late '09 or early 2010!!! Saavn will announce the name of the movie in the next few weeks...

You can check out contest details at here and watch the YouTube announcement here. You can also watch the Verizon promo here.

Unfortunately, I have two left feet and probably won't be sharing any of my dance attempts with anyone! But I'm really excited for any of you who actually can dance (Please teach me!) and wish you the best of luck! Keep me posted on your entries and let me know which songs you chose!

Just for fun, if I could actually dance, here's some of the songs I'd consider submitting:

1)"Dhoom Tana" from Om Shanti Om

2)Any of the songs from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom , especially "Kiss of Love".

3)"Salaam-E-Ishq" and "Saiyan Re" from Salaam-E-Ishq

4)"Do You Want A Partner" from Partner

Happy BollyDancing!

Thanks for sharing! You know. I'm with you on this. I loooooove watching dances but I can't dance myself. ;)

PS - Yeah, school can hold me down too with posting. I love movies and blogging too much. I've been going back to school for a year already too.

Congratulations on starting your in-house clinicals, Nida! I hope you squeeze some good Bollyviewing in there too, though. ;-)

And as for the dancing competition, well, let's just say I'd look like the fellow contestants in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom if I tried it. I mean, like, the chickie wearing Kajol's lengha from DDLJ. Baaaad. LOL

Hunting for useful sources that can help you to learn dance online is really time-consuming. However, if you are getting tired of searching for such resources over the internet, visit the website and go through dance directories.
