Kathak Dance & Violin Performed Together!

Pushing beyond the boundaries of my creative limits, I taught myself to play the violin, sing, and dance mathematically complex rhythmic footwork simultaneously. Coordinating the physical movements of playing a string instrument while singing and choreographing intricate percussive footwork seemed impossible. So I kept honing my craft and never gave up. By marrying these loves of my life together, I founded my unique first-ever creation! Watch now!

Stand Up, Be Titanium Live Performance

Bullying causes unspeakable pain and hardship. Let’s stamp it out for good. Find your inner strength and no matter what, don’t fall. Stand up; be strong like “Titanium” — you too can ignore and deflect hurtful words. The metaphors and symbolism in this ballad have a very powerful message that I present through Kathak, an Indian Artform that requires tremendous stamina and skill to dance fast footwork and lightning-speed pirouettes with five pounds of strung bells on each ankle! Dance is my voice
