What do you do when infected by the Bollywood bug?
You do your hair and put some make-up on, you paint your nails and put the high heels on ....and you Dance. Does not really matter if it’s a Friday or Saturday, you dance all day you dance all night.
That was me at the age of 4 …… a total Chammak Challo!
Hey beautiful people ,,,, I’m Rekha, the proprietor of ‘Dance with Rekha’. Born and raised in a family of talented Bollywood artists, I had always dreamed of being a Dancer or Dance Choreographer. Trained and Certified by Saroj Khan & Shamak Davar’s Institute I won numerous awards for my dance & choreography in local events, functions & fashion shows in Mumbai.
Years passed, I got married and migrated to Canada in 2003. Life happened …. I got busy with the rat race and raising my family and my dreams were a story of the past. In 2014 I was fortunate to be given this opportunity to choreograph a work event and that reignited the flame. Fast forward to 2021 (the pandemic) I followed the mantra ‘if you can’t go outside, go inside’. The house basement became my studio and started some fun dancing with my better half as an activity to keep us fit and active ….. both physically and mentally. That was the brainchild behind ‘Dance with Rekha’.
I wasn’t sure if this was a good idea, but I had this innate need to see if I can take up this challenge. My husband encouraged me to follow my passion and with the attitude of ‘picture abhi baaki hai mere dost’ I started this venture.
At the age of 43 life has given me a 2nd chance to dance my way into your hearts. Through my start-up ‘Dance with Rekha’ since May 2022, I teach Bollywood choreography & run bollyfitness instructor-led classes. It gives me multifold joy by serving the community and connecting with interesting people. Most of us are going through something in life, we all have our separate paths and struggles and I am no different. I live with my own set of imperfections and mental health issues but what I do know is life is worth celebrating.
Singles or couples, the good, the very good, the beginners, and the dancers all are welcomed to my classes ….. come, experience a new way of staying fit & join the dance community.
