Indore: Pursuing her mother’s dream, 12-year-old dancer daughter Muskan Sharma created a kind of history in her family as she made it to the top seven at national dancing show ‘Super Dancer 2’ bringing laurels to the city.
Though the road ahead to the first position is obviously hard her undying will and supportive parents must bring success to her.
Like a good daughter, she followed her parent’s aspiration and learned dancing before anything else in life from her mother Pragati who is a dance teacher.
Sharing her story, Muskan said “I don’t even remember when I exactly learned dance but officially, I started training under my mother when I was just six years old.”
“My mother taught me latest Bollywood steps and steps on western beats as well,” Muskan said. Her attachment to dance was relative to attachment with her mother.
“Eventually, my parents sent me out for learning various other forms of dance from qualified professional trainers,” Muskan said. Studying various forms of dance from Rohit Amera and Akash Chouhan, she discovered robotics.
“My parents and I wanted to create a place that distinguishes us from others,” Muskan said. Finding robotics different than Bollywood dance that her mother taught, she felt it was apt for creating a buzz.
“When I discussed robotics with my mother, she helped me understand the difference between the two dance forms, especially the stiffness in body in the first form instead of smooth movements in the latter,” Muskan said. Working on changing her body’s style, she found robotics indeed a fun.
“I had discovered robotics on youtube and that is how I initially self-trained,” Muskan said. In a year, she was able to harden her body and found the dance simpler.
“A couple of months back, when my parents got me an audition for super dancer, I was nervous but dad promised to buy me a chocolate if I cleared it,” Muskan said. Motivated to spend time with her father Anand and get the coveted chocolate, she kept her eye on the prize during the audition.
“I cleared it and it was fabulous when dad took me out and bought chocolates,” Muskan said. Interested in dancing, even her father helped in training during holidays.
Sharing her interest and passion, Muskan said “I love mathematics. It is fun and challenging. I always practise math whenever I get free time.” Taking a break from dance, she works on mathematics and always makes merit list by scoring about 90 per cent in math.
Hoping to make her own unique place in the arena, Muskan said “Everything is fun when we devote ourselves to it, and I hope to continue studying mathematics while dancing.”
