We booked Nisha for a couple months worth of lessons for a surprise first dance and Bollywood remix for our wedding reception. I cannot overstate how gamechanging her classes were, not just for our wedding but for our future. I was previously the person who never participated in any kind of dance, even garba! Now I am looking up dance studios and think this is going to be a part of how we participate in future activities together. Nisha is an incredible teacher - she is patient and kind and easy to work with. But she's also demanding in the right ways and pushed us to go beyond our comfort zone to dance on another level. She taught us a traditional western style first dance segment and combined it with Bollywood fusion for our second and third segments. She even mixed the song for us in a way that impressed our DJ! Our family and friends were completely blown away by our dance routine - couldn't have asked for a better result! Seriously, these are the best dance lessons you can find - Nisha is awesome!

Nisha is the absolute BEST. We booked classes with Nisha to prepare a surprise Bollywood-dance for our wedding. Nisha prepared the dance and cut the music, taking our song preferences into consideration. She was so patient, fun and is such an amazing teacher - she made sure we were ready for the big day. The dance was epic and everyone loved it. We would book dance classes with Nisha again in a heartbeat!

Nisha was AMAZING to work with. My husband and I wanted to do a fusion Bollywood/ EDM/ salsa dance as our first dance, and she created the perfect choreography for us. It felt so “us”, and we had a wonderful time learning it. All of our guests were so impressed and we had so much fun doing it! Highly recommend having Nisha choreo your wedding dance!

Nisha is such a wonderful dance instructor. She is kind, extremely patient, punctual, responsive, and accommodating. And her choreography is amazing! I honestly think the dance we performed for our wedding reception was everyone's favorite part of the night :) I couldn't recommend Nisha more for your Bollywood/Indian dance needs!!!

Nisha was the easiest and most fun part of our wedding planning process. I reached out to Nisha with only 4 weeks before our wedding, asking to choreograph and teach 2 Indian dances for our wedding. She was quick to respond, get to know us, and start teaching. She's not only a talented dancer, but a skilled choreographer and teacher. We are mediocre dancers and she made the process fun and comfortable. A few qualities that really stood out about Nisha: 1) Organized - Once we agreed to work with each other, she quickly sent over a proposed practice schedule which made it easy to plan practices for both our couple dance and for our group dance. 2) Patient - She made sure we knew our steps and spent more time than she needed to to make sure we had it down! With our group dance, she was so great at working with dancers of all levels and making it inclusive and fun. 3) Creative - Her choreography is so fun! Nisha got to know us and what we were looking for, and really made our dance memorable and fun. Our friends also had a great time with the choreography. Huge thanks to Nisha, we got so many compliments on our dances!
