Dance has always been the driving force in my life, the one constant that has kept me grounded and given me a sense of purpose. It is not just a hobby or a fleeting interest, but rather an intrinsic part of who I am.
For me, dance is everything. I approach my passion for a dance without any conditions or expectations because I truly believe that if I dedicate my life to this art form, it will reciprocate with the same level of respect and fulfilment.
My dance journey began during my college years when I joined a dance crew called "Danger Radiation." This group of talented and like-minded individuals provided me with the perfect platform to explore and nurture my passion for dance. We spent countless hours rehearsing and perfecting our routines, pushing one another to reach new heights in our performances.

As time went on, my dedication to dancing only grew stronger. I was fortunate enough to represent not one, but two dance crews as a solo dancer: Hip-hop Indians and Caper Maniac Crew. Together, we honed our skills and brought our shared love for dance to the forefront, participating in numerous competitions and college festivals. Through our hard work and determination, we achieved success and recognition, winning various titles and accolades along the way.
One of our most significant achievements came in 2019 when we had the incredible opportunity to represent Kolkata on the national stage at the IHHDC (Indian Hip Hop Dance Championship). Our dedication and passion for dance shone through as we competed against the best of the best, ultimately securing a place in the top 8. This experience not only validated our hard work but also fueled our drive to continue pursuing our dreams in the world of dance.
Each dancer's story is unique, filled with its own set of struggles and triumphs. My journey has been no exception, and there have been times when I have faced challenges that seemed insurmountable. However, I have always been able to draw strength and inspiration from my passion for dance. This "something" has always been a source of hope and positivity in my life, providing me with the resilience and determination to keep pushing forward.
Today, I continue to live my dance journey with unbridled enthusiasm and dedication. I strive to constantly improve my skills and learn new techniques, never settling for mediocrity. I have been fortunate to work with and learn from some incredibly talented individuals, each of whom has left a lasting impact on my approach to dance. These experiences have shaped me into the dancer I am today, and I am eternally grateful for the opportunities that have come my way.
As I look toward the future, I remain steadfast in my commitment to dance. I believe that with hard work, perseverance, and an unwavering passion for the art form, there are no limits to what I can achieve. My journey has taught me invaluable lessons about discipline, self-expression, and the power of dance to bring people together. These insights continue to guide me as I navigate the ever-evolving world of dance.
In closing, I wholeheartedly embrace my passion for dance and the profound impact it has had on my life. This journey has brought me immense joy, fostered deep connections with fellow dancers, and given me a sense of purpose that transcends the boundaries of the dance floor. I am eternally grateful for the opportunities and experiences dance has provided me.
