Nupur, a competitve dance programme is telecasted on NTV Bangla every Tuesday. The team behind the concept of Nupur, an innovative dance programme, featuring the talented child performers, are Shibly and Nipa, the dancing duo.
In the year 2002, Nupur started under the banner of the dance organisation Nrittyanchal, headed by Md Jahangir and sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank, with the aim of spotting talented dancers. The competition started wih the first phase of filtering some 400 upcoming artistes of the country. From each region, a committee comprising veteran dancers and other noted cultural personalities select the talented performers.
To generate interest among the viewers and to share the positive aspects of the art form amongst the young generation, proficient dancers, directors, choreographers and even musicians, are often invited who talk about their association with dance. Among them were Zeenat Barkatullah, Aupee Karim, Ishita, Anjana, Bijori Barkatullah and others who have moved to modeling, fashion, films and drama and continue to enthrall the audience. Plans are also afoot to present the colourful traditional dances of the indigenous people: the Rakhaines, Santals and the Chakmas, among others.
Nupur is telecast on NTV Bangla, every Tuesday at 9 pm.
