I dance almost everyday of my life. I choreograph and create movements whenever I find an opportunity, but my biggest passion is teaching. My passion for teaching comes from my mother. Watching her be the teacher she was to her students, my sister and me, has been one of the biggest reasons why I chose to teach dance.
Kshitija has been working as a professional dancer for more than a decade now. Her performance and teaching experiences have taken place in different cities around the world.
My CV is constantly building, and new experiences are always been added.
