So she founded Lanita Joseph Dance & Cultural Center in 2006 to teach jazz, ballet, and musical theater to students of all ages, genders, races, and sexual orientations. By cultivating a safe space for everyone, she aims to inspire self-discovery and build awareness of issues pertaining to topics such as youth violence. Performing helps community members learn about each other's cultures and, therefore, about each other. Under Lanita's tutelage, students have been able to show off their skills and artistry at the Harold Washington Cultural Center and the Museum of Science and Industry.

In Bollywood films, India?s stars fall in love, sing about falling in love, and most importantly, dance while falling in love. Featured on ABC and NBC, Bollywood Groove teaches its students to replicate some of the genre?s moves, which blend semi-classical Indian dance, hip-hop, and bhangra, an energetic folk-dance style. Set to upbeat tunes, the class routines are also rigorous cardio workouts that work every muscle group, unlike dance classes in which students only learn to blink to the beat. In the kids? classes, meanwhile, youngsters as young as aged 3 learn movement basics, as well as tidbits about India?s different regions, languages and cultures.
