Her words to you:
“Dance to me is to inspire, whether it be yourself, your family, your friends, community, the public and if you dream big a city, a country maybe even the world.
When I walked into Dance Masala January 2013 I was looking for a place to express myself and be myself. I was instantly surrounded by passion, love and respect for who I am and my culture. I am always humbled to be a part of Dance Masala and the performance team. To me it’s a Bollywood Dance School that respects cultural dance which brings me joy and happiness each time I walk into training, class and performance. I can’t wait to share the joy of Bollywood dance with you.
I think we’re all a little nuts, it’s about individuality, respect and unity.”
Nisha is also a consultant choreographer, and Juniors instructor in the Dance Masala team.
