Being a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering can really force you to spend most of your time in the lab or library working on your thesis. While I absolutely love engineering and education, I also know that everyone needs a break and an escape! I love to cook and eat; so fitness is non-negotiable for me. But I often find myself yawning while I am on the elliptical at the gym. So, here comes BollyX to the rescue – something that combines style, swag, fun, music, dance and burning serious calories!
I was born and raised in India, and moved to California in 2003 with my family, and currently live in Philadelphia. I have been performing Indian folk dances since I was a kid. My escape from all the stress, work, and school has been dancing. I got that by rehearsing for dances for the annual culture shows during college. I was also the co-choreographer for Bhangra in college for three years (my co-choreographer is now my husband; so it worked out really well for me). I have also performed at fundraisers for charity as well as raising money for clubs and organizations. Dancing has always been one of my favorite hobbies; and teaching BollyX gives me the opportunity to continue dancing, stay in shape, and motivate others to do the same. I am ready to rock it with all you BollyX, dance, and fitness lovers!
