Intermediate Hip Hop
Shana has loved dancing since the first time she went on stage at the age of 5. While she grew up training in Indian classical arts (like Bharatanatyam) and Bollywood/South Indian Cinematic dancing, she started experimenting with hip hop in middle school and trained further in college. At 23, she has been teaching beginner to intermediate choreography for the last 7 years to all ages and dance levels, and directed and choreographed for multiple dance teams and performances across the country for the past few years.
As for her choreography, Shana draws inspiration from the diverse training she received growing up, and loves adding a bit of cultural flavor by using music from all over the world, like R&B, reggaeton, Afrobeats, and dancehall. She pulls from commercial hip hop while incorporating grooves and foundations. Outside of teaching, Shana loves training in hip hop foundations and other styles of dance like contemporary to expand her artistic knowledge, discipline, and technique.
Above all else, her class aims to create a fun, welcoming space for people to experience the joy dance can bring, whether it’s their first time dancing or their thousandth!
