Amrita Choudhury has devoted the past 27 years to the dance and music of India. She began her life journey in dance at the age of four as she studied with her mother who was also a well known dancer in India. She studied the classical/sacred dances as well as the traditional and folkloric/gypsy dances of India for many years in India at a the specialized art school “Santiniketan”. Amrita also has a degree in Anthropology and continues to pursue her research of “Anthropology and Dance”. Amrita travels all over the world offering workshops and performances.
