"Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself." ~Havelock Ellis

Dancing, for me, is the breath in my body and the fire in my soul. It is the drink that quenches my thirst to be the best I can be. It is a part of me - it is what keeps me going every time when life gets tough.
I started dancing at the age of two and a half. My dance journey started with Bharatanatyam and other classical dance forms. At first, everything seemed difficult and unachievable but with time, my fascination for this ancient dance style grew and flourished and in a year, I am going to complete my graduation in Bharatanatyam. While Bharatanatyam is my base, my interest in international dance forms began to grow.
Cindrella's formal induction into dance began at the age of 10, though she has been dancing since she began to walk. Her dance training began with Bharatnatyam - a challenging and sometimes, tiring journey. But as time went by, her interest in various dance genres, Indian Classical or Western, kept growing. Till the point when she realised that dance was an inseparable part of her.
Her passion for dance led her to join Twist N Turns as a trainee instructor. She feels happy to be a small part of a talented and dedicated dance team here. She feels privileged to have received training from some amazingly experienced trainersin Jazz, Contemporary and Hip Hop.
Friedrich Nietzsche's words - "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music" - sum up her feelings for dance perfectly.
"Dance, plays a most significant role in my life; it keeps me healthy. For me, dance is the language of my soul. It is silent, but it expresses itself through my body."
