Henna Khanijou

Jersey City, NJ

Henna has been a dancer since the mere age of 2 when her mother displayed her talents in talent shows all across her hometown in Long Island, NY. At the age of four, she won first place at her first dance competition at a Citibank opening in New York City, NY.

At the age of seven, Henna was enrolled in Kathak classes in Long Island, NY. Throughout her years at home, Henna advanced gracefully through the Kathak program, and she continued to choreograph and teach Bollywood dance as well, becoming a co-captain and choreographer at her High School Indian teams. Henna enriched her love for dance by learning other forms such as Hip-Hop and modern during her high school career.

When moving to college at the University at Buffalo, Henna continued her passion for dance by joining the South Asian Fusion Dance team on campus, UB Zeal. In her sophomore year, Henna and Madhu, co-captains, lead the team to make victories on and off-campus throughout the Western New York region. Post-graduation, they have maintained contact and have continued to build on their love for dance by adding fitness into the mix. This was the point that they were recommended by others to train under BollyX and expand the Bollywood Fitness movement throughout the Buffalo, NY region!

Now, Henna is located in Jersey City, NJ and continues to teach her classes regularly in the area along with attending others' classes to build on her own knowledge. Each instructor has something unique to share - the more you get to know about your community, the more you will learn!
