The show Dance Plus is a show that is made for all the people that have the talent and the passion required for dancing but are lacking a proper stage for it. It showcases the immense talent that the youth of India possesses in the field of dancing and tries to provide a platform to that talent. The show is also hope for the dancers that come from the underdeveloped parts of the country, for those who don’t have proper financial stability but are willing to showcase the raw talent that can make them famous and also can put them in a better position in the society.
