Yuva Gati auditions are similar to a dance workshop. Students don’t have to present any dance item. They just need to come with an open mind and follow their workshop leaders instructions. The panel will be looking for enthusiasm, stamina, passion and creativity and will not be judging students on how much or how little they know about the dance form.
