I am Deena from Chicago area! My dance passion began back in Tanzania, East Africa where I was born, when my mom enrolled me in Kathak (classical Indian dance) at the age of 3. I then performed in various cultural events on Bollywood music through out my childhood. After moving to Chicago I continued my dance journey by getting trained in Bharatanatyam, another form of classical Indian dance receiving the Illinois Arts council grant. Through out high school and college I was the choreographer for all the performances for SASA. I graduated with a Masters degree in Information Technology System and currently work for Optum Healthcare as Business Analyst. Along with my full time job I am also a Bollywood dance choreographer for Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays and all special events. I stay active and live a healthy lifestyle along with my love for travelling, baking, cooking and decorating my home. My favorite quote is: Dancing is like dreaming with your feet! I am super excited to be part of the BollyX family and look forward to sharing my love for Bollywood dance!
