Teachers and Instructors at Twist N Turns
Dance teachers and Instructors of Twist N Turns.
I feel, in creating dance routines I can make a world where things are done morally and honestly. I started my carrier in classical dance in too early age as a part of Mamata Shankar's troupe. I have completed my diploma on Bharatanatyam as well as on Ravindra Nritya under "Sarbhabharatiya Kalakendra".
Later I got the chance to be an examiner under Bangiya Sangeet Parishad. I also started my own classical institute in 2011. Being a student of Fine arts, I truly feel dance is another art for me which gives peace to my soul and mind too. Thereafter I started my Bollywood and creative dance too along with the classical background. And finally, I got the chance to be certified Zumba instructor in 2017.
Every-time I dance, I turn into a better version of me..
I could not adequately describe the way dance makes me feel. It is as though I had somehow found a way to sever the chords holding me to this earth and if only for a fraction of a second ~ I could fly.
I am an artist and I believe everyone is an artist who loves and respects their prefossion. I fell in love with dancing when I was a kid. My dance training began as a B.Boy and then switched to various forms ( locking,popping,house & urban..).
Started dancing few years ago. Back then it was just a hobby but experience and exposure gave way to lifelong happiness - "Dance" .
As I believe -
"Dance, when you're broken out.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance, in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free" .
I have been trained in hip-hop, contemporary and ballet. Have also been trained under Sambo Mukherjee, founder and lead of FULLSTOP CREW, one the best crews of Kolkata.

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.
" 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
A dancer who believes that 'dance' is a means to emote the inner self and to express that one should have true knowledge of his art form. A blend of both old and new schools is what I am all about. Trained from the best hip-hop crew of Kolkata i.e 'CRAFTS OF KAMMOTION' and from BOSCO CAESAR DANCE COMPANY, Hip-hop is what I breathe and live for. I want to spread the culture in the truest form. I like to call myself a BBOY when you attend my classes and will make sure that you will fall in love with HIP HOP.

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.
