Neha Giridharan has been dancing for most of her life! She is formally trained in Bharatanatyam, a South Indian Classical dance style, and completed her Arangetram (a grueling 4-hour graduation performance) from the Arathi School of Indian Dances in 2005 with her sister. She moved towards Bollywood in college, where she co-founded the collegiate Bollywood dance team "Om Shanti," and competed from coast to coast, LA to NY. Most memorably, she was the "White Swan" during the 2011-2012 competition year when the team won 1st Runner's Up at Bollywood America. Neha has judged Bollywood dance competitions, was on the Bollywood America board for 2 years, and has taught classes in Phoenix, Davis, and Millbrae. Most recently, she started teaching at Dogpatch Dance as the Bollywood Choreo Instructor, continues to choreograph and perform locally (and make dance videos!), and is currently a dancer on the NachleSF Bollywood dance team! Apart from dance, she loves her job as an Inpatient Pharmacist and traveling the world with her husband!
