According to an entertainment website, Meaww, Gabriela is part of the dance cover girl group Queens of Revolution. On the contrary, Shreya is trained in Hindustani classical as well as Odissi and other forms of contemporary dance. Apart from that she is also a yoga practitioner. Like Gabriela, she also performs K-pop dance covers.
Reportedly, the two are now moving to South Korea for a month-long training period. At the end of this period, one of the two will be selected to become a member of Blackswan.
