1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

Hi. I'm Samarth Khaneja from Jaipur. I am 20 years old and dance has always been my forte. I have always participated in various competitions across my city and after coming to college I joined a college society 'NOX' and decided to take my abilities to another level.

2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue dancing and how did you start?

My dance went through a revolution when I came to college and saw my seniors dance so well and the most amazing part was that they practised themselves, without any trainer for them, just grasping things from other students and building a team. I learnt a lot from them.

3. Who is your favourite dancer and why?

My favourite dancer is Prabhudeva. I believe he has his own style of dance and he's so natural and so confident that whatever he does is considered to the new trend.

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

Dance is a form of expression so one can always express themselves through dance if not through words. One can always deliver a lot of messages through dance to society. If you're a trained dancer you can teach children and if you prosper it as a career then you can participate in various dance competitions all over the globe.

There are a lot of competitions and one can always perform in the underground battles to build up their form and after learning much can set up their own club and teach the students from all over the country. You can make your style videos and teach through YouTube.

5. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent?

Perfection requires training. So it really doesn't matter if you have your own style or you are learning some already existing forms. You have to practise them with full dedication to master them.

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

I would like to say that one must never feel disheartened as there are always failures before success so one must never stop doing hard work. The more you work, the more you improve and the more you achieve.

7. Which is your favourite book and why?

Honestly, I don't read many books. I have read only one series and that is Game of Thrones and I really liked it.
