What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Artistic Director Nina Kottakuzhiyil started training in classical Indian dancing at the age of 6. She has been dancing different dance styles ever since. Opening up a dance school has always been her dream, as she often says she was destined to dance. During lessons, she strives to impart energy, enthusiasm and confidence.
What do you love most about your job? I love the fact that I can share my passion for dancing with others, and teach my students with the talent I was given. Dance is a way to get away from the routines of day-to-day life, get lost in music, and make the rest of the world disappear for a little while. This can be you - register now!
