Salsa contestants inspired IGT winner


Sonali Majumdar and Maraju Sumath were declared the winners of India's Got Talent Season 4. A few years ago, Sumath who was not even aware of salsa impressed the judges with his excellent style and grace. He says, "I was learning Bollywood and hip-hop style of dancing. It is only after I saw a couple performing salsa on one of the seasons of India's Got Talent, that I decided to learn this dance form."

Keen to learn salsa, Sumath decided to train under the same choreographer who taught the couple on IGT. For a year, every weekend, he travelled from his home in Bhuwaneshwar to Kolkata, where the choreographer's Bivash Dance Academy was based. "After shuttling for my classes between two cities for a year, I finally took a break from studies and stayed in Kolkata for six months to learn the dance," says Sumath, who aims to compete at international competitions along with his partner Majumdar.
