Founder Kajal Thanawala

Falling in love with the idea of making music with her feet, Kajal learnt Bharatanatyam from Nalanda, Folk Dancing from Mrs. Indumati Lele (Didi), as well as Western Dance from the Terrence Lewis Academy.


Kajal's Guru Indumati Lele

One of India’s greatest folk dance legends – Indumati Lele, also known as ‘Didi’ – decided to dedicate her life to folk arts and dance at the ripe age of ten.


Our Team

We consider our teachers to be more than just instructors. They are role models, mentors, encouragers – for anyone who is interested in taking that next step. The passion that they carry for what they do is an inspiration to our students.
