“I used to run 5 kms one way to go learn dance”

Himanshu Bundela, contemporary dancer from XX College, Gurgaon talks about his beginnings, experiences and the journey so far. Take a look!


While to many of us, pursuing our passions and hobbies seemed like the most obvious answer and choice, for a number of others, it did not work the same way. Meet Himanshu Bundela, our next Shortlist entry from Gurgaon who started learning dance after being inspired through reality television and dance shows.

Having performed at over a  hundred college festivals and events, Himanshu proved that his passion would see no bounds.

“A journey that began with me hiding from my parents and going to learn dance has culminated into a beautiful one with a number of experiences. From being a member of Ryan Martyr’s Crew and Terrence Lewis’ Dance troupe at the World Cultural Festival to working on commercials for brands such as Coca – Cola, Videocon, Hero, Apple, Gionee and Hajmola to name a few, it has been rather incredible,” he says.

Inspired by happiness and aspiring to spread happiness, Himanshu now runs his own academy – My Dance & Fitness Centre with 5 branches in Gurgaon and is hoping to continue expanding in the field.
