Dancing A Dream

It might not be on a professional level but I am finally realizing a dream - performing as a dancer. It was a just over two years ago that I covered an Indian dance event for Bollyvista, not knowing then that I would ever be joining them down the road.

With only two of the original dancers under choreographer Sheetal Kochavara, namely Roderigo Fernandes and Michael Olson, we've added five girls and three guys into the mix. They are: Sandy Lugo, Lisa Eden, Fidel Flores, Lary Bou, Bruno, Margie Nickeson, Breanna Park and myself.

We have performed dances from Aaja Nachle (title song), Jab We Met (Mauja Hi Mauja) and Mission Kashmir (Jhoom Barabar Jhoom). We've had so much fun, while learning at the same time.

Here are the links to the videos. Hope you enjoy them.
