Gulabi Dance Co. started as a passion project of mine in 2019. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved dancing and weddings. One of my favorite childhood memories is of my aunt teaching me full-on choreography to “Chale Jaise Hawaiyen” from Main Hoon Na to perform at a wedding. I’m a Bollywood fanatic and my family is full of personalities fit to make the most dramatic characters. The filmy facial expressions, gorgeous clothing, and graceful moves are some of the reasons I fell in love with Bollywood dancing. I’ve had the opportunity to teach romantic first dances, fun flash mobs, and hilarious groomsmen numbers. All of my clients have made this such a fun experience for me. I love helping friends and family create memorable performances that light up the dance floor.
My booking process typically starts out with selecting the desired songs and determining the length of the performance. We discuss the client’s skill level and performance type during the first meeting. I’ll, then, make a custom audio mix that the client will review before starting choreography. Once the client is happy with their mix, I’ll choreography, and we’ll decide on a time and place to meet up and learn the moves. I have an at-home studio in Rowlett or I can travel to the client (whatever is convenient for them). I also offer virtual lessons which includes a pre-recorded video with a full break-down of each dance move. In addition to the virtual lessons, I offer additional support via FaceTime or Zoom if anybody needs extra help. Typically, it takes 4+ hours to choreograph and teach a 2-3 minute song.
