Being a dancer in Indian movies was my first dream career. More than a physical activity, dance is a form of storytelling to me. Indian dance styles have emotion-rich gestures and facial expressions, which complement the meaning of a song. Engaging with an audience and pulling them into my story, even if it’s their first time watching Indian dance, is what motivates me.
I formally trained in Bharatanatyam under Guru Dr. Malini Krishnamurthi at the Natyanjali School of Dance. Over the years, I have gained confidence and proficiency in other styles, including Bollywood, semi-classical Indian, Kathak, Bhangra, Lavni, hip hop, and Bollywaack/waacking.
