Mumbai, Apr 23 (IBNS) Contemporary dance icon Terence Lewis and India's dancing diva Madhuri Dixit-Nene are coming together to support Mumbai's first ever Contemporary Dance Festival, Jugnee.

A five day non-profit and completely dance neutral festival will aim at becoming the most well-constructed, holistic and giving the young emerging and professional dancers a voice and platform to showcase their talent under one roof, in addition to bringing the most renowned International Faculty here to its dancers.

Talking about the festival, Terence, says: “The dance community in India and Mumbai works in isolation and are unaware of the opportunities they have for themselves! It was important to unite them for several reasons, one is to give young struggling emerging artist a platform, get international Teachers and the best teachers from India to professional dancers seeking further training and also for dancers to get acquainted to the funding bodies and getting choreographers to share their journeys!”

Talking about Madhuri’s collaboration, he adds: “Madhuri is the Icon of dance in our country and her name is synonymous with talent grace and beauty! Since its Mumbai's first indo contemporary dance festival, who better but the Mumbai girl, who gave dance respect and dignified it with her performances!”

“Besides Madhuri is also working very hard to help people across all age groups to create awareness in dance through her digital app tutorials and much more. Her app (DANCE WITH MADHURI: DWM) is one of the first apps in India on dance that has been successfully helping people to dance across the world. People, who may not have the luxury to step outside of their homes or work places, due to time, financial or social constraints," said he.
