Career Video on Dancing

In a video, Noopur Gupta has talked about various aspects of a Career in Dancing. Noopur Gupta started by explaining Dancing as: "Dance is a performing art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement. Dance can be categorized and described by its choreography, by its repertoire of movements, or by its historical period or place of origin." The video gave me so much food for thought.

We all know that only 10% of what is taught in Dancing is actually used in real life. The education section of the video clearly explained what is the 10% needed in Dancing. Noopur Gupta touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Guidance of Guru

Noopur Gupta then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Dancing:
  • Practice

  • Body Language
Positives of any Career motivate one to work hard for the same.
Noopur Gupta believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Dancing:
  • Attractive Form of Art
  • Medium of Expression
  • Mental & Physical Fitness
  • Stress Busting
Challenges define a Career as much as the Positives of the same.
And, Noopur Gupta believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Dancing:
  • Lack of Interest in Students
  • Improper Guidance
  • Unfair Judgements
