Nitya's first dance class took place in her hometown of Huntsville, Alabama at the age of 5. Since then, dance has brought her closer to her Indian heritage and been a constant source of happiness, strength, and creativity.
She trained in Bharatnatyam for 12 years, under Tanjore and Kalakshetra instruction. While pursuing a double major in journalism and politics, Nitya was a part of NYU Nasha, a competitive collegiate team that allowed her to explore new styles of dance and promote South Asian culture across the country. When life took her to Boston, she danced with Nazar Bollywood, Boston's premiere Bollywood dance troupe.
Nitya is honored to continue her journey through dance as a member of the The Sa Dance Company and excited to share moving work across audiences and alongside such talented individuals.Back to previous page
