Sumit Jha started dancing when he was eight years old. His dance training in Siliguri, his home town, started by watching TV and practising at home. He started training in Bollywood at the age of 12 and then went on to start learning specific forms like Breaking, Hip hop and contemporary.
After some years, he felt the need of professional training and so joined Twist N Turns. He underwent an intensive one year training in Hip Hop and on completion, joined the academy as a trainee instructor.
"Dance is my passion and it means everything to me. It's what I'm most passionate about in the world. Dance for me is a way of expressing myself. I dance to feel alive, I dance because it's who I am."

Swarnav is associated with Twist N Turns since long. He started his career as a student in TNT and at present he is an Instructor. He got his training from Prasanna Saikia and Tapas Das in TNT which not only helped him to enhance his dancing skills but also helped him to develop his personality . Since there is no end of learning, when ever he gets time from his busy schedule he joins as a student to other instructors, which according to him is a fun way of learning! By nature he is very friendly and can connect to kids very fast. Finally Swarnav says, "I am living my dreams".
It's been almost over a year that I'm associated with TWIST N TURNS and the experience here is just great. Being with the TWIST N TURNS family is a dream come true, especially the classes I did under Nikita Ma'am, taught me a lot. She has been an ideal role model. Her creativity and and the way she handles her classes inspired me a lot.
I started dancing when I was 18. After a year of random training I joined TWIST N TURNS. I did my diploma in Dance here.I learned under Tapas Das and Prasanna Saikia. They helped me to improve my dancing skills, and also motivated me a lot. Its been couple of years that I have been dancing, and now this is not only my passion, but rather my language. I feel alive when I dance. According to me- "Most people aren't born dancers,they evolve into dancers"- and I too am one of them. Anyone can be a dancer; all you need is something in your heart- that you want to express".
