Madhuri wants to open dance schools worldwide

Mumbai: Her career took a backseat after her wedding, but Bollywood`s dancing dive Madhuri Dixit is seriously thinking about fulfilling her dream of opening a dance schools chain across the world.

"I don`t have an immediate, ready plan to open my dance school, but I really want to do something like that and hopefully, god willing, I will do it," Madhuri told reporters.

"The plans are in my head right now. It will be multi-genre school where various dance forms will be taught. I am speaking as if everything is ready... but it is my dream. If I do it, it will be everywhere," she added.

After shifting base to Denver following her wedding in 1999 to Shriram Nene, the 43-year-old kept in touch with her dance through practice sessions at home.

"I started practising my kathak there and that`s something that gave me a lot of joy," said the trained Kathak dancer.

Now the actress has two children - Arin, 7 and Ryan, 5, and she wants to wait for some more time to put her plans for the dance school in place.

"My children are really young right now. When I get some more time... I will focus on the dance school," she said.

As of now, she is enjoying her stint on Sony TV`s "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4" as a judge along with actress Malaika Arora Khan and choreographer Remo D`Souza, and maintains that she doesn`t miss the glitzy cinema life when she is back home.

"I miss Mumbai for the energy of the city and because there are a lot of friends in the city. I miss my craft sometimes but I don`t miss the other stuff that goes with Bollywood because I was never part of it.

"I have enjoyed every moment of my life - have never had any regrets. I am glad I took a break for my children because I wanted to be with them in their formative years," said Madhuri.
