Mumbai, March 29 (IANS) Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit has been zeroed in on as the third judge for the upcoming Indian version of internationally acclaimed dance format “So You Think You Can Dance”.


Madhuri, a trained kathak dancer, has showcased her talent in several Hindi films and popular songs. The ease in the expressions that she showcases in her dance beautify her prowess.

She has even judged dance reality TV show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” in the past.

Apart from Madhuri, the desi “So You Think You Can Dance” which will be aired on &TV, will also feature choreographers Terence Lewis and Bosco Martis as judges.

“Bosco will take charge of street and raw urban style while I’ll look into the technical aspects of the stage performances. Madhuri will oversee the Indian styles,” Lewis said in a statement.

Internationally, “So You Think You Can Dance” features a tiered format wherein dancers from a variety of styles enter open auditions held in multiple cities to showcase their unique styles and talents.

If allowed to move forward, they are put through additional rounds of auditions to test their ability to adapt to different styles. At the end of this process, finalists are chosen.

The Indian version of the show will go on air in April.
