Meet Sankalp, The Fantastic Dancer From Shivaji College

Day in and day out we are being introduced to new talent; talent that the world was unaware of. And we couldn’t be happier about bringing it all to you! Our next Boombox Talent is Sankalp Khugsal, a 2nd year BA Hons student at Shivaji College, who led his dance crew – Footloose – to the top of the charts this year.

After winning his first solo dance competition in the 12th grade, Sankalp went on to perform at more than 150 competitions & around 60-70 colleges, like IIT Roorkee, IIM Rohtak, Miranda House, Ramjas, Jesus & Mary, Gargi & many more!

Sankalp’s team, parents & friends inspire him to perform; his parents being his biggest support system. But if you thought that he excels only at dance, you’re about to be proved wrong. This multi talented student has also represented India internationally in Baseball! But when he suddenly decided to get into dancing, his parents encouraged him & asked him to do it in the best way he can.

And that’s exactly what he did! Watch his winning solo dance performance:

Talking about his aspirations, Sankalp said,

I’ll dance till I can. If opportunities keep coming to me I’ll do it with my full dedication, because as a member of Footloose we’ve faced many problems. We were not that good in comparison to the top teams in DU but when I became President, I planned everything with my team so that we could take our name to the top, and this year we accomplished our goal! This was the biggest achievement for us this year and I want to give all credits to Mr. Mohit Solanki, our choreographer, for this success.

College festivals have not only helped Sankalp become a better dancer, but also a better human & a great leader.

“Everyone is doing their best to help each other in the Delhi Dance Circuit, which is really good. Footloose shares a really good bond with the other teams, like Crunk, Misba, Sensation, Enliven & more. We have always loved to perform with these teams and they have always been very helpful to us and vice versa,” he says signing off.
