    Instructor is wonderful with explaining and walking you through each step. Her patience creates a safe place for an any artist, beginner or advance, to flourish.

    Thank you so much, Preeti, for an amazing Bhangra class!!! I had so much fun learning and drilling the choreography. I really appreciate how you broke down the moves in a way that was easy to follow and how you explained the song so that I understood the story that the singer and the movements were telling. I hope I’ll have a chance to learn more from you in the future!

How did you get started teaching?
