BollyGroove Kids Instructor
Divya Toshniwal has her BBA from the University of Michigan and is currently working at Trunk Club. Prior to Trunk Club she worked at Accenture as a Strategy Consultant and moved to Chicago in 2014.
Born and raised in New Jersey, a hub for Indians, Divya has been surrounded by her Indian culture and took up dancing at the age of 3. She joined different dance groups, took a few private dance lessons but mostly learned from her mom and by watching way too many Bollywood movies.
When Divya started at the University of Michigan she joined the Bhangra team, and danced on it competitively for 3 years. The pure energy and stamina combined with grace and attitude required for Bhangra is something very few dance styles can offer, and so she’s thrilled to have experienced it.
From young age up until today, Divya has been performing on stage and she enjoys every moment of it. Starting to perform on stage at a young age has been key in building her confidence to stand in front of a large audience, which proven to be beneficial in several aspects of her life. Divya’s passion for dance and love for kids made joining BollyGroove Kids as an instructor an easy decision, and the experience so far has been more rewarding than imagined!
