SRINAGAR’S DANCING SENSATION
Nargis, 20, is a dancing sensation of Srinagar. She is currently pursuing Bachelor in Arts from Amar Singh College. Nargis has done her schooling at New Convent School, Srinagar. Her hard work and persistence have been her biggest strengths. Her success journey is the perfect new-age example of “A Woman Can Achieve What She Sets Her Heart On’. Dance is clearly the young woman’s passion. “I discovered my love for dance when I was a child. I joined a local dance academy close to my house for two months, but I was not happy with their way of teaching. They used to teach only basics,” Nargis recalls. And so the journey began. Nargis started learning from YouTube channels and TV. “I began putting in my fullest efforts and worked hard to learn good moves. After I gained some confidence, I started uploading dance videos on the WeGO app and received a good response. Steadily, I started uploading content on Instagram and Youtube. I get highly motivated by the immense appreciation that I get on all social media platforms,” says Nargis.
THE HUGE FAN BASE IN KASHMIR
Nargis has a large fan base in Kashmir now, and is a superhit on her Instagram and Youtube channels.

Her debut performance was on the famous stage of Tagore Hall, Srinagar. She has also worked in many music videos with local productions and has done three music videos with Doordarshan Kashmir.

Nargis has received high recognition locally and has received certificates of appreciation at many events of Kashmir like Aaberawan, Panaash Productions, Khwaja Itrat, Khatoon Event, Kashmere Foundation, SheriKashmir Production, and also from JKStudentorg.
THE JOURNEY TO STARDOM
With thousands of followers on her social media platforms, Nargis is a young star of Kashmir. She emphasizes that excellence in her chosen field did not come easy. “It takes a high level of discipline and self-confidence. Perseverance, willpower, hard work, and belief in oneself. I received mixed reactions from society. Some criticized me for my passion and some supported me. But success is always connected with faith in your own strength,” she says with clarity. Nargis highlights that dance as a career is a challenge in Kashmir. “We don’t have much scope for dance here, but production houses are gradually showing their interest when they see our talent. We lack in many facilities and we don’t have many events here, but things are getting better day by day,” she smiles.Nargis is fortunate to have received the complete support of her family. “My whole family believes in me, especially my dad, a forest officer. He was the one who first brought me to the dance academy after he noticed my interest,” Nargis recalls fondly.
WAY TO GO
“If you don’t know where to learn dancing or you are not able to find any academy of your choice, do not lose hope. Make social media your teacher and your biggest platform. You can learn from the content there and upload yours as well,” says the young woman who is dancing her way to success.
