Telstra Sponsors Bollywood Dance - Federation Square - Melbourne

Arrey Wah! Australia’s brightest Bollywood dance stars shine at the Telstra Bollywood Dance Competition

Federation Square was buzzing with excitement on Saturday 4th May as thousands flocked to witness the freshest talent in Bollywood dance at the Telstra Bollywood Dance Competition. Contestants from Melbourne and other states danced in front of superstar judges, Farah Khan and Kabir Khan and very special guests Prabhudeva and Girish Kumar who were all in Australia as part of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.

Dance groups were aged under and over 13, with dance styles including Bollywood, modern dance styles, traditional Bharat Natyam, Odissi, Kathak, as well as dances based on traditional folk lore such as folk dances from the south of India, Maharashtra, Orissa and Assam. Judges Kabir Khan and Farah Khan expressed their amazement at the talent on show.

The Telstra Street Team was out in full force, taking souvenir photos of spectators on the night and handing out audience support cards. The contestants’ chances of winning were increased through the Telstra audience vote, where the crowd voted for their favourite dance act via an SMS voting poll on the night.

Congratulations to team Shaimak whose Bollywood Masala Moves won the Telstra audience vote as well as the judges vote at the Telstra Bollywood Dance Competition! Shaimak’s unique performance replicated the dancing postures of various gods and goddesses revered in India. The dance began by invoking the blessings of Lord Ganesh, who removes all obstacles to ensure a smooth journey, and Shaimak’s journey on the night certainly brought them to success! 

Congratulations to all the contestants who participated at the Telstra Bollywood Dance Competition 2013!
