Lalit Mohan : Taking forward the brand promise of making Dance India Dance, Season 3 BIGGER and BETTER than ever, Zee TV has brought down international choreographer and celebrity dancer, Alex Magno to train the participants of DID Season 3. Alex is an acclaimed international choreographer and creative director with over 25 years of show business experience known for his work with Madonna, The Pussy Cat Dolls and Britney Spears to name a few.
Alexandre Magno is a Brazilian born, Emmy Nominated choreographer and director known for his unique dynamic style and vision. Drawing on a variety of styles, disciplines, and cultural influences, Magno infuses his work with powerful drama, beauty and sensuality. Unlike many choreographers, he is able to cross over from the commercial world (film, TV & stage) into the theatrical world with amazing ease and grace. Some of his credits include: Madonna, Yanni, Britney Spears, So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars and the Academy Awards all the while continuing work with his own highly acclaimed dance company, “Personna Dance Theatre”.
Alex is delighted to be a part of Dance India Dance Season 3. He said, “ I’m a big fan of Dance India Dance. I have followed the previous seasons of DID and loved it immensely. The kind of talent that comes on the show is phenomenal! The show is a rage abroad. When I got to know that the team is coming back with the third season, I approached the Zee team and expressed my desire to be a part of the show. I’m grateful to Zee TV that they gave me an opportunity to come down to Mumbai and train the contestants. I have trained personalities of international repute. But honing the skills of raw talent gives me a different high. The shortlisted dancers already have a natural rhythm, I am teaching them techniques which will help them break a song down into verses, chorus and bridge and put all these in a choreographic format in the right parts of the song. The beauty of DID is that it does not rely on huge props, lighting or an expansive set but focuses on the performance, choreography, staging and innovation. These elements weave magic around the show.”
The channel is sure that every participant in the show will gain valuable insights in the world of dance and choreography under Alex’s able tutelage.
Master Remo, Geeta and Terence have handpicked the best dancers of the country, during the auditions which were held across 20 cities in the country. These contestants according to them surely have the potential to prove that they are BORN TO DANCE. The chosen dancers will now be put through the next level of rigorous training by world class experts/ choreographers like Alex Magno, Lourd Vijay, Ava Bharucha and Haridas Ethafu.
