A dance competition ‘Dancing Icon 2014’ aiming to identify best dancer of Madhya Pradesh will be organised in the city. The competition will be organised by Riddhi Foundation, a welfare society.

While talking to the mediapersons here on Monday Ashish Dhakar organiser of the event said, “The contest is mainly dedicated to underprivileged girls of the society who rarely get opportunities to showcase their talents before mass. The welfare society through the initiative also highlights the phrase Beti Hai to Kal Hai.

Elaborating further he said, “Dance is a way to express our feelings, emotions and love and Bhopal being the cultural capital of the State gave many artistes to the country. So this would be another chance for the budding artists to appear before the masses.” He further said, “We endeavour to encourage these children to grow in their unique talent and so maybe we would introduce other talent hunts as well.”

Adding more, Aashish Saxena President from Riddhi Foundation said “We with our principle message Beti hai to kal hai are trying to prove that daughters are not liabilities of individuals and society, but true assets. ‘Dancing Diva 2014’ will certainly expose the hidden talents of girls of Bhopal of from cadres and provide them opportunities to make their own future.”

The competition is divided in four parts that would begin with audition, semifinal, final and grand finale. Attractive prizes are offered to all three city finalists and all three finalists of grand finale.
