One of Mumbai's top dance troupes, Teenagers Crew INDIA, has shut its classes at Bhayandar East after not getting work for the past seven months. The members of the troupe said their situation is so bad that they don't have money for groceries at home. But full of hope, the group of youngsters has been rehearsing on beaches and at railway stations, and is seeking free space from the civic body to rehearse, so they can restart work during the festival season.

The troupe is dependent on weddings, corporate events and reality shows for a living. Teenagers Crew INDIA is also well known for stunts and free-style hip pop dance. They were contestants at India's Got Talent Season 7, India Banega Manch, Dance Maharashtra Dance, semi-finalists at Kings of Dance, and winners in Dancing Stars 3. Their team also performed at the Star Parivaar Awards, Tamil Nadu Premier League and the IPL.
