Video: Dance Bangla Dance Junior
Dance Bangla Dance Junior is back yet again!! In its ninth year, the show promises to be bigger and better and promises to keep both the young and the old hooked to the show.
The show has twenty one participants aged between 3.5 and 9 years of age. Participants from Kolkata, Bangalore and different parts of West Bengal have participated in this edition of the dance reality show. After four months of auditions in different areas, 21 participants have been selected from over fifty thousand children who came in for the auditions.
Seated on the judges’ seat will be Jisshu Sengupta, Srabanti and Ankush. “I cannot even imagine how they remember all those dance steps so well. When I was their age, I was not even half as smart as they are now!!” said actress Srabanti.
The hosts of the dance reality are six year old Raktim Samanta and eight year old Raktima Das. “Though the names are quite similar, they are not real life brother and sister. That is strictly coincidental” revealed actor Jisshu Sengupta.
The unique aspect of this season’s Dance Bangla Dance Junior is the fact that there is a fairyland setting to the set. A toy train and its driver are often seen in between sequences. “We are having a great time with the kids who are so talented. I, Ankush and Srabanti have even had a great time on the toy train on the sets” added Jisshu Sengupta.
Captain of the Performer award will be given to the best performer of the episode. With more sponsors joining hands later on, there will scholarships given to the children for helping them with their education.
The show Dance Bangla Dance Junior will be aired from 4th July from 9.30 pm.
