Choreographer Terence Lewis will judge ‘India’s Best Dancer’ Season 2 alongside Malaika Arora and Geeta Kapur. And recently in a conversation with Koimoi, he opened up about the show and his bond with the fellow judges.
Terence shares, “In ‘India’s Best Dancer 2’ we are looking for the ‘Best Ka Next Avatar’. These days, social media has created awareness about different dance styles and has even inspired people across the country to take up dance as a full-fledged profession. I feel people have realized how they can make themselves standout and that is why I believe that the ‘Best Ka Next Avatar’ is the most suitable title for Season 2,”.
He feels grateful for being back as a judge as he says: “It feels amazing because last season was such a big hit and we had some wondrous talent. I would also say that I am certain that this season is going to get even better.”
Talking about the challenges he has to go through as a judge “The toughest part is to keep yourself updated with the different styles that these budding dancers come up with. Each form, each pattern needs to be improvised, and the contestants make it even more special when they own it!”
He further added, “It’s about the minor details – the training, landing, style, aesthetic, we as judges need to keep all this in mind as we watch them perform. It must be perfect in terms of technique and the viewing experience should also tick all the boxes. Current trends, songs, and a lot more are what we as judges, need to consider. It comes with great responsibility and all three of us try our level best to ace it, every time.”
Opening about his bond with Malaika and Geeta on the dance reality show and adds: “Geeta and I have been best friends forever. Malaika was my student 20 years ago. Geeta and I have grown together in our careers and it feels very comfortable to share the tag of a co-judge with her and Malaika both. All of us share a wonderful bond and have a lot of fun. Sometimes the production people have to especially ask us to ‘be calm’.”
