expanding her movement vocabulary to include Western forms such as ballet, jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, and
hip hop. In 2015, Indiana graduated from Laine Theatre Arts, UK, with a National Diploma in Performing Arts (Level
6) and a DDI in ISTD Ballet and Modern. To date, she is the only Indian to have graduated from this school.

Indiana has taught and performed extensively in Toronto (CA), London (UK), and all over India. She has
choreographed and danced for numerous organizations, including Anze Skrube, Dragon Talent Group, Colors TV,
BBC India, Sony Music, and Dharma Productions. In 2015, Indiana made her Bollywood debut, starring as a dance
teacher in Ae Dil Hai Mushki, directed by Karan Johar and produced by Dharma Productions. Indiana was recognized
by the Mayor of Kingston upon Thames for the contemporary solo that she performed at Ignition Dance Festival
(2015).

In May 2018, Indiana moved to Toronto and is currently a guest faculty member at York Dance Academy, offering

Indiana is known for her commitment to cross-cultural and artistic collaborations. She has always believed that dance
has no boundaries and strives to ensure that her work reflects this philosophy.
