Zee APAC’s ‘Dance Singapore Dance’ to launch on 18 July

MUMBAI: Dance Singapore Dance, Zee TV APAC’s first reality dance competition in Singapore, will premiere on Saturday, 18 July 2015.

After three gruelling months of training, the 12 finalists are all set to take the stage, compete for the grand prize of S$10,000 and be crowned Dance Singapore Dance's first winner. The show is completely produced in English and will be telecast on Zee Tamzih and Sensasi (a local Malay channel) apart from Zee TV Asia Pacific to target the local Singaporean audience.

Close to 200 local dancers from all walks of life took part in the auditions held early this year. The final 12 who made it through audition round come from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities that include Chinese, Malay, Caucasian and Indian. They are between ages 16 and 35, and represent different dance styles from contemporary to Bollywood, jazz, hip-hop and ballroom dance. They were placed in two groups, mentored separately by choreographers Anil Dandge, Bollywood choreographer and Roche Mascarenhas, choreographer & dance instructor from Singapore. The show has been creatively directed and choreographed by NeeravBavlecha, the Dance India Dance Season 3 fame.

The first two episodes of the season will feature over 60 dancers from the auditions, while the remaining ten episodes will have themed challenges in an elimination round format leading up to the grand finale. Local judge Zaini Mohammad Tahir, artistic director of Republic Polytechnic and Shakti Mohan, winner of Dance India Dance Season 2, will groom and see the contestants grow through the different challenges.

Zee TV APAC business head Sushruta Samanta said, “Zee TV Asia Pacific is delighted to present these rising dance stars the opportunity to shine and showcase their talent on screen. We believe that Dance Singapore Dance will inspire them to pursue their passion, dream big and achieve even greater things, in the process creating a base for the upcoming seasons.”

The show will be aired on 18 July at 8 pm (SGT) on Zee TV APAC across 18 countries outside India. The grand finale will be aired on 26 September.
