This Dance day we want our users to put their best foot forward and showcase their talent from across the country. Through this campaign, we have been able to align with our purpose of offering a platform where all the talents are encouraged and have an equal opportunity to express and showcase their talent. We are delighted to share that more than 18k creators came together to shake a leg and spread awareness about their culture.
Celebrating the Dance Day, Krittika Sharma, Actor, and Tiki creator said, “Tiki provides creators an opportunity to engage with a wider audience and a platform to advance their careers. Today, I posted videos of my Punjabi dance which received so much love and appreciation from other users across India. This is a beautiful way to celebrate our country’s local culture through an art form like Dance. It was a delight to see various new dance forms from across the country.”
Tanya Sharma, Actor, and Tiki creator said, “In a world full of trends, we lost the regional and cultural connect. But, this Dance Day, Tiki helped us reconnect with our roots by creating videos of our cultural dance and to spread awareness about it. It is a great feeling for all the creators to unite, showcase and learn about each other’s culture. I will try to post more videos of my folk dance to keep the spirit alive.”
