Atlanta’s Kruti Dancers a Hit on America’s Got Talent

October 2010
Atlanta’s Kruti Dancers a Hit on America’s Got Talent Eighteen advanced students from Atlanta’s Kruti Dance Academy were popular on the America’s Got Talent TV show this summer. They performed in Orlando, Florida, for the regional auditions and went on to Las Vegas as one of the top 100 acts out of the initial 100,000. In Vegas, although judge Piers Morgan voted for them, the other two judges did not—but wait, all was not over! As team lead and Kruti choreographer Shemoni Parekh was preparing for her wedding, the call came: they had been invited to perform in the Wild Card Show of the top 48 acts. Shemoni postponed her honeymoon, and they went to Hollywood to perform, and to hear judge Sharon Osborne say that Kruti Dance could now compete with River Dance! As Shemoni noted on the show, “We are so thankful for living in a country where different cultures are not only accepted, they are appreciated.”
