Nayana is a professional dancer and choreographer originally from New York City. She began dancing at the age of four and her talent was quickly recognized when she started competing in South America and took 1st place more times than she didn’t. During her teenage years she spent time in Guyana, training under Dr. Vindhya Persaud for Indian Classical Dance(Kathak).
Over the years she has continued to explore different styles of dance, including Bollywood, Chutney, and Soca. If we’re being honest here, there’s no style of dance she can’t learn (except maybe aerial dancing…).
She currently showcases original works at dance festivals throughout NYC and surrounding states, with her main influence being Chutney. If you want to see her get her groove on, or learn how to get your own groove on, visit our “Bookings” page.
