Tamasha SD 2017 – Thank You

Zindagi and Agni Girls

Another fantastic SOLD OUT show!! Extremely proud of Tamasha SD staff, the college teams, and my wonderful exhibition group, the students of Jonathan Bosco Film and Dance International Studio.  I received a lot praise from parents and friends from the community.  The newbies had no idea about the event and were excited and happy.  My students were cheering for all the college dance team’s performing that night . I had 20 returned dance students, and we added 30 new selected students for this event.

I’m extremely proud of my students whom were exhibition act of the night and rocked the show. They danced their all and getting a lot of cheerful noise from the college teams and crowd.  It’s an experience they will never forget.  Out of the 800 attendees, 300+ are my student’s family and friends that came to support the kids and the event.  I am truly a blessed to have a large support from the family and community.


My sister, Nikita ( Freshman at University of Arizona ), and her best friends, Alyssa ( Freshman at University of Southern California ), Sarah (Freshman atUniversity of San Diego  ), Tucker (Freshman atNorthern Arizona University ) all drove down to see Tamasha SD again.  They enjoyed the event so much last year , that they did not want to miss it this year.

Huge Thank you to my Volunteers & Parents that helped me out with Food, Costumes, seating arrangement and more.
