Join Gaitrie Subryan for a Bollywood dance performance followed by a brief lesson, during which the audience will get to learn some Bollywood dance moves.
In 2013, Gaitrie Subryan moved to Buffalo and formed Devi Bollywood Dance. Her journey began at an early age when she set eyes on Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit; however, she only had the opportunity to be in the dance studio during most of her adult life.
While in college she choreographed for a number of student-run organizations for events and performances. After graduating in 2006 she joined a New York City–based Bollywood dance school, Bollywood Axion, as a troupe member, performing at countless events under the Artistic direction of Pooja Narang. In 2009, Gaitrie joined The Sa Dance Company, under Payal Kadakia. The Sa Dance Company gave Gaitrie exactly what she needed to build herself as a performer.
Subryan works closely with the community by teaching classes, performing at events with her performance group and does programming as a Young Audiences Teaching Artist. She continues to study and train in Bharatanatyam, taking and exploring all avenues of dance forms.
