The Dance n’ Beats Academy was started over 15 years ago in India by Mrs. Chittal Shah, a Bollywood trained professional myself. Also I am holding a Professional degree in Classical, Folk and Western Dance. My formal training started in India at the age of 5 under the “Ishanupuram Dance Academy”- one of the great homes for Bharatnatyam. Following that I have spent many years in India, learning Western Classical, Indian Folk and continuing my Bharatnatyam training as well, finally completing my Arangetram at age of 13 which marked the end of my formal training.
During all the years of my childhood, I always enjoyed dance. Having performed in shows with many Bollywood celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Anil Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Sudha Chandran and many others. I have also choreographed in many International shows and trained many celebrities like Sanjeeda Sheikh ( Winner of Nach Baliye 3 ) for basic Classical dance. The Dance academy’s dancers has performed in shows across the world. Me and my students has awarded as a best dancers in many competition across the world.
Now I have opened a new branch in London with the help of Ms.Priya Vaghela, aiming to pass on the traditions of their home culture to the new generation of all ages Britishers. Dance n’ Beats is UK’s most authentic Bollywood dance class which specialises in teaching beginners in a fun and easy to follow way.
At Dance N’ Beats everyone can learn to dance or grooving Bollywood numbers. Our dance classes are a fusion of India and Western contemporary dance which makes you swing, twirl and groove on this contagious style of dance.
