There is no doubt that dance is the hidden language of the soul. Meet Ameesha Tandon, a very young, gorgeous and magnetic resident of Faridabad who enthralls everybody by dancing her heart and soul out...
This little 15 years old girl, Ameesha Tandon began dancing more than a decade ago, at the tender age of 2, under the direction of her dance teacher, Bobby Sharma. Various dance and music genres fascinated her right from toddlerhood. Ameesha’s parents and dance instructor have dedicated their life for shaping her into a dancer and managed to achieve their goal with the great blessings of Lord Almighty.
“By the time Ameesha had turned 2, she used to dance on every musical tune that she would hear. Ameesha used to dance so enthusiastically that I arranged a dance trainer for her, at home,” says the happy mother.
Her keen interest and dedication coupled with sincerity and innate talent helped her carve a niche in dance as well as music. All these qualities are very well depicted in her actions, gestures, body language and performances. While telling about how she started, Ameesha shares, “Bobby Sharma who also owns ‘Nach Baliye Nach” dance institute at Faridabad has always been a perfect guru, mentor, motivator throughout my journey in dance. I have been learning from him when since the time I was not even 2 years old.”
She is blessed with natural flair for the art, and relentless devotion. She delivered her very first onstage dance performance at Nach Baliye Nach when she was just three and a half year old. She danced so ravishingly that she completely mesmerised the audience. “I remember how she was extremely excited about her first performance in a solo dance competition. There were many contestants but she didn’t hesitate at all. Her confidence and hard work made her bag the first position,” says the proud father.
Endowed with a pleasing stage presence, Ameesha always brings to her audience a refreshing presentation of dance forms like Contemporary, Bollywood, Hip-hop, Salsa and Freestyle, exhibited through her strong sense of rhythm, scintillating dance movements and lively expressions. Her abilities were recognised very early and she has been the recipient of numerous awards both at school and state levels, apart from having won all round appreciation as well as accolades from the press and public.
Owing to her long years of experience as a performer and her deep understanding of the aesthetics of the dance form, Ameesha has had attained top positions in many reality shows. “I have won seventy one awards in total. Some of them include 5th Runner up award in Boogie Woogie Kids Championship’10, 1st Prize in Little Champs’07, Special Prize in Shri Krishna Films International. Above all, I have had reached up to national level in Sanoni Sitaron Ki Khoj,” tells the champ.
Apart from dancing, she has profound interest in singing, sketching and writing. A class X student at MVN Aravalli School, Faridabad, she has one goal in mind: to pass on this wonderful art to the young and upcoming. To accomplish this, she wishes to become a renowned choreographer and open up a dance institute of her own.
Ameesha hopes that as she strives towards greater excellence in dancing, her passion for Contemporary and other forms of art will endow her with courage to break boundaries and widen her horizons in all avenues of life. She acknowledges her sincere thanks to her Guru for his expert guidance; her inspiration, Shri Prabhu Deva and her parents who have identified and greatly encouraged her in making her dreams come true. She also greatly appreciates her school principal and other teachers without whose cooperation and support, pursuing her passion would have been impossible.
