BENGALURU: Malayalam television channel, Amrita TV, has called for entries from couples for a new edition of its reality show ?Let?s Dance?.

Amrita TV creative head and Malayalam film director Shyamaprasad says, ?The enthusiasm from the youth across the state, in hundreds, proves to us that this show has an engaged audience. Dancing in pairs, with musical support from the rich repertoire of South Indian films creates such emotional rapport with the audience and hence I believe there is this clamour for more, which lead us to launch Lets Dance new season.?

The competition, which will include a wide range of different and international dance styles, will be a round-by-round elimination contest says the channel. A team can comprise of pairs in the 15-30 age group. The last date for receiving entries is June 15.

 The channel says that while the earlier trendsetting shows of Amrita TV ?Super Dancer? and ?Super Dancer Junior? nurtured individual dancing talent, the new show would focus on encouraging pairs to showcase their skills, with professional choreographers of contestants working with each team to infuse innovation and energy to the show.

The channel has not yet announced sponsorship and advertiser details for the new show that will be aired Monday to Thursday between 7 and 8 pm starting 21 July with 100 episodes planned. For the earlier avatars of the show, Amrita TV had roped in Kerala based Prime Footwear as sponsor. The show replaces season two of ?Let?s Dance?. The channel plans to continue with Malayalam actress Sija Rose as anchor.

?We have received entries from over 500 pairs across Kerala and expect many more. Twenty couples will make it to the show and the final pair will emerge victorious over a span of about 100 one hour episodes,? reveals a source at Amrita TV.

 ??Let?s Dance? will be mounted on spectacular sets with dazzling lights, LED Walls and stunning sound systems. The show?s format will throw open immense opportunities to competing  pairs and enable them to showcase a  variety of Indian, cultural and international dance styles ranging across a broad spectrum of classical, contemporary, Bollywood, hip-hop, jazz, Kalarippayattu, Salsa, Samba and musical theatre styles, amongst others, with many sub-genres within these categories represented,? adds the source.
