1. Tell us more about your background and journey. 

I belong to Lucknow, did my schooling at DPS Lucknow, and later studied design in FDDI Noida. I have always been a creatively inclined person, be it arts, music, or dance. I am on a journey to self-discovery and finding my truth and my art is the way through that.

2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue dancing and how did you start?

I was always fond of dancing throughout my childhood and teenage years, I have performed in school and college. However, taking it up professionally came after I joined Banjara school of dance in Delhi. I auditioned for a production by the same and have been training with them professionally for the last 6 years.

3. Who is your favorite dancer and why? 

I really can't name one, but any dancer irrespective of their style if is honest in their expression is my favorite.

4. Can you throw some light on opportunities one gets as a dancer?

There are opportunities that one gets and that one creates. After training enough one can be a performer on stage, there are stage performances all over the world. There is the teaching which is really vast. If you want to study it academically further you can become a movement researcher. Rest depends on the style and intent of dancing being pursued.

5. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent? 

I would say yes. A format training is definitely important however there comes a point in your life where your own practice determines more than just what you have been trained. Talent is not enough, hard work, patience, and perseverance are equally important

6. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

Just be honest with yourself. Never stop learning. Fame will never be a parameter of your talent.

7. Which is your favorite book and why? 

The Alchemist, it has taught me to dream in a way nothing else has.
