Tanya discovered her love for dancing and performing at the young age of five years old when her older sisters made her “guest star” in their annual Diwali performance. Since then, she immersed herself in dance and gymnastics lessons. Tanya has been professionally trained in styles such as jazz, contemporary, lyrical and hip-hop and was the choreographer for her high school dance team. When she started UC Berkeley she wanted to broaden her dance portfolio and connect her cultural background with her passion for dance. She was an active member on UC Berkeley’s Hindi Film Dance Team, Azaad, for four years and was privileged to be a captain her senior year. Post college, Tanya is excited to be part of Ishaara to help her continue her passion and stay connected to her roots!
