Amrita TV launches yet another reality show ‘Super Dancer’

With more and more channels pumping in money into reality shows, the format is here to stay. After the overwhelming response to its shows ‘Super Star’ and ‘Super Star Junior’, Amrita TV has launched yet another reality show. Called ‘Super Dancer’, the show was launched on May 14 and will be aired from Monday to Friday at 9.30 pm.

According to a press communique, over 1,500 aspirants in the age group of 16-25 from across the country, who applied for this exciting contest, went through an elaborate preliminary selection process at Amrita TV’s studio in Thiruvananthapuram. Two hundred were shortlisted for final auditions in Cochin, and finally 20 contestants made it to the ‘Super Dancer’ show on the channel.

The auditions jury panel comprised upcoming actor Aravind and noted choreographer Kala Master from Chennai, who has choreographed over 3,600 film songs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.

‘Super Dancer’ is conceived as a mega talent hunt to discover and showcase unique forms of dance by the youth, focussing on versatile contestants who can dance to any tune, any style, and possess the right attitude. Each shortlisted candidate will undergo professional grooming and dance orientation sessions including stress management modules, and the person walking away with the ‘Super Dancer’ crown will be awarded a handsome prize.

A renowned panel of jury will judge the on-air show while the eliminations and selection of winner will be through public SMS voting.

‘Super Dancer’ will follow Amrita TV’s legacy of engaging and innovative reality shows mounted on spectacular sets such as ‘Super Star’, ‘Super Star Junior’ and the currently running ‘Vanitaratnam’. ‘Super Dancer’ is branded by Close-Up, Hindustan Lever.
