Meet The BW Team
Founder & C.E.O
Vandana Majithia, began dancing at a young age. Her background includes a variety of Indian folk, Bollywood, Bhangra, classical and fusion dance.
Being involved with reputable & established dance academies, she gained experience performing in dance dramas & large stage productions, dance competitions, community shows and events. In doing so, Vandana performed in front of large audiences at prestigious venues.
A mother of two young daughters and living in Milton, Ontario, she felt the need for them to experience what she had when she was a child. The rush of being on stage, gaining confidence, learning dance & culture, while being part of the community. Thus, Bollywood West was born!
Vandana is deeply passionate & enthusiastic about teaching dance & building confidence in her students. She teaches both of our Bollywood & Bhangra classes to all age groups.
Punjabi art and music has been an integral part of Kulbir’s upbringing, at 4-years old, he began playing tabla and was exposed to traditional Punjabi music. Naturally, Bhangra entered his bloodstream at a young age and he has been dancing ever since.
His early experiences in novice Bhangra dance groups landed him a spot on a professional Bhangra team in University which helped hone his unique style in traditional and contemporary Bhangra. Kulbir is a talented tabla and dhol player and incorporates live dhol music when teaching Bhangra.
Based on Kulbir’s experiences, he believes Bhangra empowers self-confidence, fosters teamwork and improves personal fitness. Kulbir strives to incorporate these aspects into every class all while having fun and experiencing Punjabi culture.
