We got the opportunity to know more about Elina…
1. When and how did you enter the world of dance?
I was actually heading to go meet a few friends at a school when I saw a couple of people practicing dance outside a room. So I walked in and saw a dance class happening. I ended up enrolling and a few months later got selected to join the company. And that’s how my professional dance journey began.
2. What does DANCE mean to you?
It was and will always be my first love.
3. Did your parents always support your dancing?
Haha No! They did not take my dance as a serious profession, especially my mom until much later. They always encouraged me to dance but said to do it for fun as a hobby. But when some of my mom’s own friends and clients became my students and started telling my mom about my dance talent, that’s when she was like “Hmm, maybe she can take this up seriously.” Lol.
4. What are some of the challenges you faced when you started creating dance content?
I love a mix of Hollywood and Bollywood music. So I guess initially it was a bit hard for the audience to relate or resonate with my vibe and choice of music. I’m still sometimes considered “foreign” even though I was born in India.
5. What is the best part about being a dance content creator?
The best part about being a dance content creator is that I get to share my vision and art with the world. And sometimes I have no idea who’s watching so I end up getting the sweetest messages from the most unexpected people.
