Avani Modi

Whether Avani's feet were adorned by tap shoes, payals, or stilettos, they were always moving to the sound of a beat. Avani first set foot on stage at the age of six at her school competition in India. Since then, she has performed at various social events, including cultural programs and school festivals, but her single most significant achievement is the work she has done off-stage. She trained as a Bharatanatyam dancer under the guidance of Sudha Shekhar's Kalanjali School of Dance for five years, during which time she transformed her grace into art with meaning. When she's not busy moving her feet in the studio or on stage, she can be seen running (in heels) after the train to work and class.
