about v fusion dance
V Fusion Dance was founded by Veena after many years of choreographing and teaching both Indian Classical Dance classes and Street Dance Classes. She decided to experiment with her favourite dance styles and found something unique.
The aim of V Fusion Dance is to reinvent the boundaries of dance by amalgamating two or more existing dance styles together.
V Fusion Dance is unlike other dance classes as it actually teaches you the meaning behind the intricate hand gestures and bold footwork of Bhartanatyam (Indian Classical dance) but also incorporates techniques and fluency of Street Dance within the same dance routine. All routines are choreographed by Veena.
The Indian/Street fusion style has won an award at the International Dance awards in Barcelona for its uniqueness and quirky style.
More fusion style classes are available upon request as well for workshops as Street Dance, Indian Body conditioning and Bollywood for workshops or regular classes.
Veena is a passionate dance teacher with over 18 years teaching and choreographing experience with many performance skills. She has taught both children (from 3+) including children with learning difficulties to adults of various capabilities in many different capacities such as Wedding dances, private classes and group classes.
