Nach Ballet Bailar

The Artist & The Teacher Praveena Pewekar

Praveena Pewekar, as a dance teacher  would like to teach young minds to express themselves through dance. She is blessed to have a Dance teacher in her Guru, Rupadidi who has her own dance company, 'NUPUR' . Praveena continues her Kathak training,  an classical Indian dance under the guidance of Rupadidi. She loves to teach and learn dance and enjoys dances from all over the world.

'NACH BALLET BAILAR' is her dream project, its mission being to respect diversity, embrace all cultures, promote teamwork and harmony among youth through music and dance.
