My love affair with dance had started at the tender age of six. The ability to express various emotional states through movement deeply attracted me to this art form.
As far as qualifications go, I have graduated in Bharat Natyam under the tutorship of Shrimathie Shiksha Singh of the Kumari Shiksha Dance Institute. My journey of self-discovery through dance didn’t stop there.
I was curious as to how I may be able to refine my craft even further. I had then decided to explore western art forms which I believe would serve as an essential complement to the traditional modalities of dance stemming from Mother India.
I had studied Ballet with Catharine’s Brown School of Ballet for six years. Thereafter I had learnt various forms of contemporary dance with Liana Loots from the Flatfoot Dance Company. I have also learnt Salsa, Modern Jazz and Belly Dancing.
As a gift to my teachers I had decided to further their legacy by teaching budding young dancers. Armed with a teacher’s diploma, I have taken a few apprentices under my wing with the hope that they too may find their own unique expressions through dance.
Highlight of my dancing career would be dancing and flashing for the Sharks Rugby team and my first stage performance for Jay Pather Production “ Dancing on the Volcano” at the age of 16.
