Neel Tank was raised in Diamond Bar, California in a large gujarati family that loved garba. He eventually expanded on this passion and learned other styles of dance at UC Berkeley where he joined Ishaara in 2007. Upon graduating with a degree in Integrative Biology in 2009, Neel left to Boston, MA to pursue a Master’s in Biomedical Sciences. He finished the program in 2010 with a drive for a community service so he became an AmeriCorps service member and worked for a Community Health Center in New York City. After completing his service in 2011, Neel decided to apply to medical school and will matriculate in the Fall of 2012. Whether on stage, or at a local garba, Neel’s always looking for the next opportunity to share his love of dance with others.
