1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

Hello everyone, my name is Bhoomi Telkar, I am an artist, a dancer from Bangalore, India. I am a BBA student, and I major in Marketing. I would not exactly call it a start of the journey because I am still learning and I will always be a student, this is like a never-ending journey, you know...

I knew I loved dancing since I was a little kid, so I can say that I started dancing when I was a small kid. I always knew I wanted to become a dancer and an actor since then, I used to listen to songs on the radio, it hyped me as it was like a "Speaker" to me then. I mean, dancing to loud music gives you a different feeling, right? I used to dress up and dance on the dining table, and my family used to cheer for me, they always hype me up. I am grateful and thankful for my family and friends for their support and love.

I started dancing in school, participated in many fests, I represented my school and college. As I mentioned earlier, I already knew that dancing was and is a part of my life and I also realised that I wanted to pursue my career in this field, the entertainment field. I would say, because of dance, I could figure out that I was interested in acting and modelling as well. I love anything related to art, it's so beautiful and hopeful.

2. Who is your favourite dancer, and why?

I actually do not have any favourite dancer, I believe that everyone has a unique talent and dancing style. I would say that we should consider ourselves to be our own favourite and good at anything we do because why wait for others to validate us, right? It somehow gives us a positive feeling, confident and a good and right attitude which is very much needed in our generation as you know it can get highly competitive and stressful.
Also, overconfidence is good but not all the time..it works according to the situation I feel...

I admire many artists like my friends, my dance instructor and many famous personalities as well, they motivate me and everyone else.

3. Can you throw some light on opportunities one gets as a dancer?

Opportunities...umm..We live in a competitive and creative world, you all know how it works to survive in this industry, especially. I won't comment much on the opportunity because the Entertainment field can be ruthless and impatient, but it is also a place where our dreams can come true. I believe that luck plays a vital role with hard work and smart work... Nowadays we have many platforms where we can show our talent, hobby, our passion. Everyone can get an opportunity if we put efforts.

4. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely based on talent?

Yes, training is important. You need to know your basics, foundations, your style, the roots of that particular art. People who can spend on training, classes are like a bonus. People who can't afford training, classes or the Internet always find their own way to learn and acquire the knowledge, and I can say that they are as good as people who got trained.

5. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

All I want to say is, don't you give up. Just don't! No matter what, try! Trying makes a considerable difference, I swear. Face anything that comes your way, you can get sad and cry because it's a part of the journey and a part of being positive, optimistic and happy(I hope this made sense) Don't get disheartened if it doesn't go your way. I believe that everything actually happens for a reason. Also, education is as important as your passion, your dream. I feel bad for the underprivileged, I hope and pray they find a way, and I hope I can help them in the future. In fact, we all can.

6. Which is your favourite book, and why?

I don't read books for now, but I am going to start reading soon. I suggest you all start reading as well, at least to improve your vocabulary.
But I do read these random, beautiful and inspirational quotations written by authors, poets and others. It is like a hobby.

I conclude this here by thanking everyone for taking your time and reading this, I wish everyone happiness, health, luck and love.
