Besides them, there are also dance crews in Nepal who are doing a great job in the Nepali entertainment sector. Some of them have even reached global platforms and represented the country.  

Besides the global platforms and local stages, they are also actively seen performing in music videos. Their presence in music videos has been able to grab the attention of a larger audience. Dance crews in Nepal so far have been playing a significant role in making the music video attractive.
