SDANZ is one big family where we work together as a team and build strong relationships. I have learnt and grown my dance styles, overall performance techniques and I am really excited to pass it on to the lil champs. Working towards my dream at SDANZ, I love the platform and opportunities that I get with SDANZ.

My journey with SDANZ started when I was really young and so far the journey has been one that has completed a part of my life. I help out the lil champs classes and really enjoy implementing what I learn in my Intermediate and Kathak classes.  Being part of the SDANZ family is an experience that everyone should encounter and I wish I would have a little sooner.

Dance makes me happy, and dancing to the beat with equally passionate people makes me happiest! The energy at SDANZ is so infectious that I look forward to each and every class and rehearsal with this lovely bunch. Productions are as grand as festivals, which makes people like me who are away from home, feel at home! SDANZ has not only enhanced my dancing skills but also given me an opportunity to be more creative and document our beautiful journey that we can share with you all!

Dancing at SDANZ is a blast! The people, the energy, and the dances. I’ve danced since I was very young and the best times are with this academy. I’ve learnt a lot of new dance styles here as well as improving my physique. I help out the little ones with their fun adventure dancing with us! Kathak and Bollywood classes have brought so much discpline to skill. I am so grateful to be part of the SDANZ family.

 I have danced from a very young age and have had the opportunity to try pout a lot of different styles- Bollywood, Hip Hop, Break, Modern Jive, Folk and Contemporary. SDANZ has given me creative opportunities to work and combine these styles and create some beautiful fusions. Being part of the SDANZ family bring in sense of belonging and one of my favourites is participating and helping out with annual productions. I am glad to be part of SDANZ’s journey to help our future dancers to habituate better expressions, style and attitude, while I continue to learn from everyone here.

I have always been fascinated in various styles of dance. I joined SDANZ as a lil bud  and within no time my passion progressed to Kathak, Intermediate Bollywood and also to become the youngest tutor at SDANZ. Not only am I learning and helping with classes at SDANZ, but SDANZ has helped me gain a lot of confidence and helped me work on my personality overall.

SDANZ is like none other! Nor is it a bunch of individual group members that learn the art of dance. It is a family. Throughout several years of being part of this family, I have grown impeccably as a dancer through many performances, complex techniques, teamwork, and devoted teaching.  I have grown up with this special community. It is true to say that SDANZ has played a big part in shaping me as an individual and I would not be who I am without all the love, teamwork and my guru.

Dance is one of my most loved hobbies ever since I was young, it gives me pleasure and happiness. SDANZ family is the best platform to express. I have learned a lot with SDANZ and something I love the most is dancing from the heart and express while dancing. Regular performances, and various other involvement with productions, I feel I can pass on this to our youth.

Dance is my way of expressing myself. I feel happy when I dance and I dance when I feel happy. Growing up I have picked various dance styles like garba, folk and latin from many professionals. Eventually joined SDANZ and found my home of dance. I love the diversity of dance styles and the people in the SDANZ family. It is pure joy meeting new people and learning from different styles!

I am an enthusiastic student of SDANZ, and love Bollywood! I ran my own dance school in Barcelona, where I taught Bollywood for few years. When I moved to New Zealand, my priority was to find a school where I could follow my passion. In SDANZ I found my dream team and a dance family that shares same values and passion.
