Priya was born and raised in San Diego, CA. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2009 with Bachelor’s in Psychology. Priya began dancing at the age of 7, training in the traditional dance of Bharatanatyam. Her love for Bollywood dance soon emerged, and she began choreographing for enjoyment with her friends. Then began the incessant obsession with Bollywood music and movies! Upon starting Berkeley, Priya joined the Raas Garba team, and in 2008 joined Ishaara. After graduating, she began a career in public relations and moved to Los Angeles, recently realizing that she wanted to transition back to her interest in Psychology and work in the mental health care field. Priya is looking forward to attending graduate school in the fall to become a therapist while following her immense passion for dance with Ishaara.
