Live. Love. Teach. Repeat!
Life was restricted to education, dance shows and general fun for me. It completely lacked focus.
It was through social media I was introduced to the Zumba World. I then did my Basic 1 Training. After that I wasn't so sure if I will leave my job and take this up as a profession. But after the first class, I took one very bold step. I quit my budding corporate career as a software professional and chose to pick up Zumba as my Career.
My mother got me admitted to a dance school when I was very young. Back then I use to go twice a week but gradually it became six days a week. I did not even realise when I fell in love with Dancing and it became my first priority. I started learning Latin American dance forms.
I attended many International Dance Festivals held in different part of India, participated in championships completions and won some of them. Then I did my training in Zumba became a Zumba instructor. Dancing is my first love. It makes my life complete. I cannot think of life without dance.
I started dancing at an early age. It has always attracted me with its beauty and still love the way it makes me feel. Since it was my favorite I was always chasing for more knowledge and that's how I joined my first dance class, practised and later I joined Hybrid crew where I met more people like me we used to share our art and grow together Later I started attending workshops and continued learning this art.
There's a long way to go though...
Dance has been the best part of my life until now. I don't remember how and when the magic of dance conquered me. It all started when I performed my first solo at 5 years old at my school. A huge crowd calling my name cheering for me and there I started my journey of dance.
Slowly I developed it every day from some lovely people I got on this journey with many faculties like Sangram Mukhopadhay, Raj Shaw, Neha Chaudhuri, Mekhola Bose.
I was always a very focused person. My ambition was to become a Lawyer from my childhood but dancing is always my passion.
I was first introduced to Bharatnatyam. I was very popular for my funloving nature and dancing during my school & college days. Being a B.A.LL.B student I found my life was becoming very monotonous and decided to become a ZUMBA instructor, as through Zumba everyone gets a chance to be active, flexible, socialize and jam out to their favourite music.
Because I feel 'Dance' is a symbol of communication which brings out the innermost feeling so I decided to take ZUMBA as my profession in spite of being an advocate.
I started dancing at the early age. Did many competitions as well and from then I knew if I could do something good in life then it has to be in Dance. Because whenever I dance there's so much I could express through it, the things which I couldn't express with my words.
Spend almost 4 years of my life with my crew named as " Hybrid Crew ".
Won District level competition together back in 2015.
