BollyGroove Private Lessons/Events Instructor
By profession, Shweta is a Montessori teacher. She teaches the Sr. Elementary Class at a School in Oak Park. Dancing, for her, started off as a mere hobby but now it has transformed into her passion. She began learning Bharat Natyam and Odissi at the age of 6, and went on to complete her formal training in Indian Classical dancing by the time she was 14. Her passion for dancing led her to pursue several different forms of dancing – Salsa, Belly Dancing and Jazz (trained at the Terence Lewis Dance Academy in Mumbai), and Ballet. Recently, she begun her formal training in Kathak too. She’s performed several dance events and shows including “Kya Masti Kya Dhoom” on Star Plus.
Over the past several years, she has been teaching dance to people of all ages – children and adults alike – and specializes in choreographing dances for special events (e.g. Sangeets, Engagements, and Weddings). Her passion for dancing is best captured in her own words – “Dancing is not just a hobby, it’s my reason to be!”
