Dance has been a great passion for me since childhood. Graduated from Rabindra Bharati University in Bharatanatyam, I was blessed with opportunities to perform and study under some renowned masters like Guru Khagendra Nath Barman & Smt.Ambali Pokraj.
In addition to dance styles like Bollywood and free style, body fitness has also been a part of my life. I went forward and got certified as a licensed Zumba Instructor.
For me, Zumba is so much more than an exercise class. It is a place where I feel comfortable enough to express myself through dance and have fun. There is a sense of community in all my classes as we all dance our butts off !
It is 'Dance like nobody's watching' !
Dancing with your feet is one thing, but I dance with my heart. It's not only my passion but also my way of life. It sets me free and I feel fully alive to each and every moment of my life while I am dancing.
I discovered the love for dancing at the age of 3, started my journey of dance with formal training in Bharatanatyam from Kalamandalam at the age of 6. Since then have tried different styles of dancing like Semi-classical, Folk, Rabindrik,
Though I am a software engineer by profession, yet my passion lies in dancing more than coding :). Dancing not only makes me feel beautiful but also empowers me to express and explore.
Ranu Singha, aka Bablu, is a young dance instructor who started his journey from a small village in Assam. He believes that words are not the only mode to express oneself. Sometimes, stabilized actions in rhythmic form, or ‘dance’ is what we need. Words have their limits and limitations, but not dance.
His desire to enter, explore and enrich the world of dance made him leave his home and venture out. He has undergone training in various dance forms like Jazz, Contemporary, Hip-Hop and Bollywood. Ranu is trained at the Ganesh Acharya Institute in Bollywood & Mumbai Shaimak Davar’s Institute in Jazz & Contemporary in Shaimak’s style. He has worked tirelessly to reach milestone after milestone. In his explorations of the dance world, Ranu came upon Zumba Fitness, a fitness program that consists of exercise along with various dance choreography. He underwent Zumba training in 2014 from Sucheta Pal in Pune, India.
For Ranu, dance is not only his passion. It is his very soul.
I feel, there is no difference between being on the Dance floor and Flying high in the sky! Dancing gives me wings, it makes me desperate yet patient, passionate and self-obsessed, yet humble. Since childhood, as I always believed in versatility, I tried different styles in dancing; whether it is Indian Classical or semi-classical, Indian Folk or Rabindrik, Bollywood or Fusion forms. I took Training in 'Uday Shankar Style' From My Guru Smt. Mamata Shankar.
