Dance is the Passion of my life!
I am a professional dancer now living in Vienna, Austria and originally from Mumbai, India. I have been learning dance from the age of 8 and have received training in Kathak-North Indian classical dance, Bharatnatyam and different styles of folk dances.
I have been teaching classical and popular Bollywood dance in Vienna since 1996. I teach Bollywood dance as well as classical Kathak dance to beginners as well as advanced levels to different age groups of people.
I taught dance at Balakairali - an association for dance and languages from 2001- 2006.
I was honored for promotion of Indian dances in Vienna by Balakairali, Vienna. on the 4th of February 2006.
I was teaching at Studio Chiftetelli from 2007 till 2009.
I have conducted workshops in bollywood dance at various locations in Austria including Bad Ischl and Schalaburg.
I have given performances as part of the annual Salam - Orient festival in Vienna as well as at Szene Wien and Theater Akzent.
I am a regular performer at the annual Diwali festival conducted by the Hindu mandir association for over a decade.
Film has been another of my interests and I choreographed the dances in the musical film (as well as playing a prominent role!), KESARIYA BALAM, the first Austrian-Bollywood movie http://www.kesariya-balam.at
The Movie got a best film award at the Competition for non - commercial film in Vienna (Landesmeisterschaft Wien) for 2011. I am proud to have bagged the award for Best Actress at the Landesmeisterschaft.
The film got the Gold as Best Film of 2011 at the National level (Staatsmeisterschaft) as well!
