Good news for the dance professionals and emerging dance enthusiasts in India, our very own dance queen Madhuri Dixit Nene and famous choreographer Terence Lewis have launched ‘Jungnee’. So what is Jugnee? A first ever, five day long contemporary dance festival to be held in Mumbai which is a non-profit association that strives to give skilled dancers a platform and a voice to showcase their unique talents. Jugnee has also brought internationally renowned dance gurus under one roof.
The festival was launched by Madhuri and Terence amid much fanfare in Mumbai city on April 23rd, 2015. Here are some glimpses from the event.
We so glad Madhuri decided on this white Rohit Bal salwar suit. She styled the look with an elegant updo, a pair of earrings and Jimmy Choo heels. A good choice, we say, letting the striking suit remain the focus of the look. She looked beautiful!

Terence paired his pin striped trousers with black shirt and half Nehru jacket in red. A smart look and we indeed like it that both their looks were well co-ordinated.
Speaking on the occasion, Terence said that it was important to unite the several dance communities in India since they work in isolation and are unaware of the opportunities they have for themselves. For one, this collaboration will give a platform to young struggling and emerging artists as the best teachers from India as well as Internationally renowned faculties will come together to train and educate them.
