MUMBAI—With a first-of-its-kind format featuring unique dancing ‘jodis’ from across the nation and Lara Dutta, dance director Ahmed Khan and international dance sensation Dana Alexa on the judging panel, “High Fever…Dacne Ka Naya Tevar”, a new weekend show, goes on air Mar. 17 on &TV.
The only validation of a great dancer is the passion with which he or she performs, and when two such passionate individuals come together, they create pure magic. That is the thought behind &TV’s first-of-its-kind dance reality show, “High Fever…Dance Ka Naya Tevar,” that will bring forth exceptional dancing pairs from across the nation to set the stage on fire.
The show will welcome unique pairs, across age groups and geographies, and give them a chance to put their best foot forward as a team testing the dynamics of their relationship. Produced by Frames, the show also marks the comeback of television’s sweetheart Priyanshu Jora as along with comedian Nitesh Shetty.
Making her television debut as judge on the show, Lara Dutta said, “Dance has been an integral part of my life and career and so have relationships. Real-life connections are the key to “High Fever,” and the contestants will have to express their respective relationships through the unique lens of various dance styles. I will see these two things as a driving force for me to judge the performances. I am extremely excited about my TV debut with such a promising concept and a platform like &TV. I hope the audience will enjoy this unique blend of dance with diverse duos and wholeheartedly support my new stint.”
Ahmed Khan said, “There are many rules to follow while dancing in pairs – some said, and many unsaid, and this show will highlight them beautifully. Most people consider dance to be just about steps and rhythm, but it is also something that needs to be felt from within. Being a choreographer, while I’ll keep a close eye on the technicalities, I am also looking forward to some amazing chemistry between the jodis. I am certain that the show will be loved by the audience owing to its distinctive concept.”
Talking about her debut in the Indian entertainment industry, Dana Alexa said, “I have traveled the world to pursue my passion towards dancing, and I am happy to have had the opportunity to come to India to judge “High Fever… Dance Ka Naya Tevar.” Dance has been a significant part of India’s rich culture, where the styles differ across states, and that is something I find very intriguing. I am looking forward to seeing such diversity on the show as well. I hope the Indian audience will love me for my talent and my love towards dance. I am looking forward to this new and thrilling journey with &TV.”
With age no bar, “High Fever…Dance ka Naya Tevar,” will give a platform to relatives as varied as sisters-in-law, teacher and disciple and mother-daughter among others.
