Gita

Dance Practitioner

I started dancing at the age of 3 to Bollywood songs; I learnt Hindi and Gujarati to help me understand the lyrics. I began training in Bollywood dance and took part in local events as a teenager. I was awarded the MTM South West Asian Awards for Best Performer/Dancer 2012.

I gained my BA Hons Dance from Kingston University, where I studied variety of dance styles including Contemporary, Belly dance, Hip Hop, African and Bharatanatyam. I am a trained Bollywood-Bhangra Instructor, and teach all ages and abilities. I have worked with a number of Bollywood dance companies developing my career as a teacher, dancer, choreographer and performer. I became interested in developing my inclusive dance practice after supporting a pan-disability Bollywood-Hip Hop fusion workshop.
