Gaurika Babal: Born on 6th December 1997 in South Delhi, the girl always had a keen interest in dancing, acting and sports. She had done her schooling from Amity international school. This gave wings to her passion and she started dreaming of a greater heights.
Let’s talk about her higher studies. She is currently pursuing B.A psychology(honours) from Kamala Nehru College Delhi University. All she needed was a big start and college was ready to give chances. She grabbed all the chances and delivered the best. It all started with a keen interest in dancing.
The college club: ENIGMA THE WESTERN DANCE was the one that helped her pave the path. Their itself she learnt how to do urban hip hop, waacking, house, locking and all other forms of dancing. She is currently in third year of her college.
URBAN SINGH CREW TO BOLLYWOOD JOURNEY:
In June 2017 she received an email, to have been selected in Urban Singh Crew and to be a part of it . The second year of college was the turning point when she got an opportunity to give an audition to be a part USC for dancing. Then eventually she went on to become a instructor at the dance centre. URBAN SINGH CREW is the first ever crew to fuse Bhangra and Hip-hop and were in Top-6 at DANCE PLUS SEASON 2.

Her Urban Singh Crew was a part of the latest hit BUZZ BY Aastha Gill ft. Badshah.
She gives all her credits to Jasveen Gulati, Sahaj Singh and Shreoshi kumar who polished her skills. Whatever she have learnt from basics to high level moves in Hip-hop, contemporary and bhangra is all she got from them. They kept faith in her and gave her all the opportunities even though she was the youngest member. She kept on following her passion and eventually things started to come her way.

- On top of this she have done 2 internships in NGOs.
She plans to be a well established choreographer and also seeks an opportunity to be play a key role in Bollywood Movies. She always has received appreciation for her work. I a sure she must be a role model to many out there and she should be obliged with this.
We exchanged the thoughts and I was really happy to hear that she isn’t going to stop here. It’s just the beginning for her and she has miles to go. She is always thankful to her family and positive friends who always supports her. At last she said that, “everything is secondary but making my parents proud is always the first priority”.
She has proved that girls aren’t behind boys in any way. She is far better than boys in her field and made whole of the female community proud. I am sure that, in no time she will make the country proud by being at international level.
