International Dance Day is celebrated every year on the 29th of April, which is the birth anniversary of the creator of the modern ballet dance form- Georges Noverre. Dance is an art form to express emotions, and narrate stories through some dance forms. Moreover, dance is a type of therapy in which you set yourself free. There is no right or wrong when it comes to dance, you can enjoy it by just grooving to some beats. On the occasion of International Dance Day, Zee TV actors like Paras Kalnawat from Kundali Bhagya, Aishwarya Khare and Munira Kudrati from Bhagya Lakshmi, Richa Rathore from Rabb Se Hai Dua, Anushka Merchande from Main Hoon Aparajita, Tina Philip from Kumkum Bhagya, and Kirti Nagpure from Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan expressed their love for dancing. They shared their experience of the art form and elaborated on how dance plays an essential role in their life.

Paras KalnawatParas Kalnawat who essays the role of Rajveer in Zee TV’s Kundali Bhagya mentioned, "Dance is a form of expression that evokes varied emotions in different individuals. To me, dancing is a source of tranquillity, elation, and hopefulness. Whenever I feel stressed, I go dancing to release all the negative energy. In my opinion, Hrithik Roshan reigns supreme as a dancer par excellence in Bollywood. Watching him perform is always a treat, he has got impeccable moves and expressions. Dancing instils confidence and grants a feeling of liberation, that is why I have loved dancing since my childhood.  I was never a professional dancer but I never let nervousness hinder my passion for dancing.  Recently, when I started shooting for Kundali Bhagya, I got excited as I had to dance for a particular scene just after my entry in the show and it was a great experience. Today, on the occasion that celebrates dance enthusiasts like me, I urge you all to never stop dancing."

Aishwarya KhareAishwarya Khare who essays the role of Lakshmi in Zee TV’s Bhagya Lakshmi mentioned, “I have always loved dancing, I remember when I was a kid, my sisters and I used to watch songs on television and try to copy the exact same steps. And somewhere that’s how we all learnt dancing. I wouldn’t say I’m a professional, but I know I can dance really well, especially when it’s freestyle and Bollywood.  Even when I am onset, with my Bhagya Lakshmi fam, I try to do some dance routines to make social media content.  It is almost like a stress-buster and  therapy for me, and on this International Dance Day, I salute all the extraordinary dancers of the world who make this art form seem so effortless and graceful.”

Anushka MerchandeAnushka Merchande who essays the role of Chhavi in Zee TV’s Main Hoon Aparajita mentioned, “Dancing is an excellent way of working out. It's good for heart health and reduces stress. It was my passion for dance that paved my way to the acting industry. Now, even on the sets of Main Hoon Aparajita, in between the shots whenever I get time I try to make some dance videos with Shweta Tiwari ma’am, Manav Gohil Sir or my other co-actors.  I remember,  I used to dance in front of the mirror when I was a kid to trending Bollywood songs. Dance gives me mental peace, and optimism that’s needed in life. I have been practicing regularly now and will leave no stone unturned to ace the art. I wish everyone a very Happy International Dance Day”

Tina PhilipTina Philip who essays the role of Rhea in Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya mentioned, “I started learning to dance at a very young age. Not many people know but I am a trained ‘Bharatnatyam’ dancer. ‘Bharatanatyam’ has taught me discipline, grace and most importantly, to express myself. I always feel very happy and energetic after a good dancing session. Even today, whenever I get some time off from Kumkum Bhagya’s shoot, I try to work on my dance form.  I have always been very passionate about dancing, and I would like to request everyone to never hesitate and always dance, like no one is watching.”

Richa RathoreRicha Rathore who essays the role of Ghazal in Zee TV’s Rabb Se Hai Dua mentioned, “I absolutely love dancing, it’s a stress buster for me. I learned classical dance when I was young and also participated in many dance competitions at the state level. I still remember we had options to choose our hobby classes in school and I took up a dance class. I feel dancing is a way of expressing your feelings, and a process to relax. Along with the classical dance form, I am also looking forward to learning the contemporary dance style. Even during my college days, I loved participating in musical plays and it used to be so much fun.”

Kirti NagpureKirti Nagpure, who essays the role of Tulsi in Zee TV’s Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan mentioned, “Dance is not just a small part of my life, in fact, it completes me. Professionally I have learnt the dance form ‘Kathak’, and that is why it plays a major role in my life.  Whenever I dance, it gives me a sense of joy and power that no one takes away from me.  Out of all the dance forms, Indian classical is my favourite, and because it cannot be learned without sheer diligence, I have taken classes for it. I have also performed one of the toughest dance forms, Tandav in my show- Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan. However,  due to my busy shoot schedule, I am unable to follow through with my hobby. I am planning to resume my classes, and polish my craft so that someday I can perform ‘Kathak’ at the national or international level.”

Munira KudratiMunira Kudrati who essays the role of Shalu in Zee TV’s Bhagya Lakshmi mentioned, “Dancing is my passion, if I would not have been an actor, I would have definitely become a dancer. If I get an opportunity where I take the training and become a professional choreographer, along with acting, I will take it up.  When I was young, I learnt Bharatanatyam for 2 years but for some reason, couldn’t continue it later. Out of all the dance forms, I would say classical and contemporary is my favourite form of dance. Whenever I’m dancing, I feel very free, I feel I can express myself through dance.  I don’t even have a stage fright, no matter how many people are watching me, I feel extremely confident when I am performing. One of Shakespeare’s quotes says ‘All the world's a stage’, I feel exactly like that while performing.”
