A Chat with NinaKshi Dance Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are a Bollywood Fusion dance team based in the the DC area. We work together to learn great dance routines and build up our dance family. We fill our lessons with culture, team spirit, great music, and great people. No previous dance experience necessary!
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Many of our dancers have no prior dance experience. Some people were born to dance, but here, we believe everyone can be a dancer. All we ask is that you like to dance and are open to the world of Bollywood. We’ll take care of the rest!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Artistic Director Nina Kottakuzhiyil was born in Maryland and started training in classical Indian dancing at the age of 4. Opening up a Bollywood dance school has always been her dream, as she often says she was destined to dance. During lessons, she strives to impart passion, innovation and vision to each dancer.
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. It doesn’t get much better than that!
