We attend classes and dance till we drop...
No doubt we need to practice to improve on our skills but sometimes our mental power and body energy drained out so horribly that one just loses the optimism to carry on.
So instead of just the dance... how about looking a little further into it?
Try getting your daily dose of inspiration from Instagram?
Everyone needs some motivation and we often turn in to people we admire most to get inspirations.
You've probably caught them in action on Youtube!
Be it dance concept videos, regular dance classes, performances, as guest judges in renown dance competitiions/battles, as backup dancers or choreographers for Celebrities.
Now, lets have a closer look the inspirational talents!
