About the Instructor : Bhumika Patel

Bhumika is currently working in the healthcare profession as a pharmacist in Burlington. She has a strong passion for music and dance of any style - whether it be Bollywood, Indian Folk, Garba (being a Gujarati), or Contemporary. Being born in New York and also raised in India, she strongly believes how dance plays such a strong role in the celebration of any festival or even a holiday - whether it be Holi, Diwali or even Christmas. She moved from Arizona to Massachusetts 11 years back and brought her passion for dance and music along as well. She truly believes dancing does not have to be hard. One does not have to regret not getting the opportunity to be trained in dance - there is always time to learn and that time is NOW. Those who missed the opportunity to learn any form of dance, whether it be Bollywood style, Garba, Indian folk, or Jazz - they still have the chance to do so! 

Bhumika loves to do her own choreography to various Bollywood songs and loves to create her own dance videos as well. She has won awards for group choreography for several dance competitions while she was in Arizona. She has been dancing for Boston Bollywood (a professional dance company) and has realized how much fun it is to be part of a dance community. As a mother of two young boys, she has experience in teaching her sons and other kids to be good dancers.
