Ayeesha S. Kanji
I was born and brought up in Santa Monica, California. I became that person who loves to perform on a stage and I have danced since the age of eight.
My love for dance started with Jazz, Ballet, Tap and Hip-Hop. Bollywood was a part of my culture and I grew up learning and dancing from friends and family. It has always been a part of who I am and what I am proud of. Moving around between Los Angeles, New York and Toronto, I maintained my love for dance and studied Basic Kathak and Bharatnatyam complemented with Modern Dance, Expressive Movement, Hip-Hop, Bellydance, Bhangra and Bollywood from prominent Toronto Dance Instructors while furthering my repertoire with Certification in Dance Studies from George Brown College.
I have performed in Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and was a part of "Why Do I Dance?" (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8435396/) from the Ontario Arts Council and a dancer in a CTV Commercial with Lopa Sarkar (https://wapbom.io/download/d5e09Oi0xC8).
While living in New York, I was blessed with the opportunity to take BollyX with Minal Mehta as well as grow my passion for Bollywood with IFFA Dancers and Bollywood Choreographers. I subscribed to the BollyX Portal to workout from home because my favorite type of cardio is dancing. Upon moving back to Toronto, I was brought back to the memories of teaching and performing which I always treasured. I joined BollyX to become an instructor and am happy to be a part of a growing community.
My goal for everyone who joins me for BollyX is to empower you to have fun, smile and feel healthy. You got this!
