Speaking of winning three prestigious awards back to back Sandip Soparrkar said, “All the three awards are very special to me. One is for the quality of dance that I teach at my dance classes, other for my work internationally and the most special one is my pet project – Dance for a Cause. These awards encourage me even more and I want to dedicate these three honours to my teammates as they are ones who implement all my crazy thoughts and turn them into sane reality, they are my pillars of strength.
Kudos to you, sir!
