Neha was born and raised in Orange County, CA and is currently a senior at UC Berkeley. She began dancing at a very young age and received 8 years of formal Bharatanatyam training. However, with her focus having been sports and academics in high school, it was not until her freshman year at UC Berkeley that she rediscovered her passion for dance. With her sister, Niki, as a captain of Ishaara, she became intrigued and decided to follow in her sister’s footsteps and become a member of Ishaara. For four years now, Neha has been a part of UC Berkeley’s competitive dance team and Ishaara. Besides dancing, Neha enjoys music, sports, socializing, and is a huge Lakers fan!
