Nirbhay was born in India, but was raised in central Illinois. He graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy and Finance. He is currently an Associate at ZS Associates in Chicago, IL. He was introduced to dance at an early age but didn’t grow to love it until later in high school after performing for numerous cultural shows. In college, he was a part of UIUC FIzaa from 2008 to 2011 where he realized how expansive the desi dance community has grown to be and was very excited to be a part of it. Nirbhayis very eager to grow and cultivate himself as a dancer and help spread Bollywood dance culture across America through Ishaara!
