Dance is the language of our soul; a thought, an emotion, and a beautiful way of storytelling. Whether it’s world-renowned ballet companies or unknown independent dance artists, Social media has provided a platform for them to share their art with the world, providing a great source of inspiration for dancers of all ages.
Even though there are many established and renowned dancers and crews on the international stage, there are many talented and upcoming dancers who are breaking ground in India.
We’ve gathered a list of some dancers on Instagram who are blowing our minds and making us want to dance too with their moves and setting our phones on fire! Take a look at them…
A Mumbai-based dancer, Radhika is an aspiring performer, a teacher, and a learner who wants to make an impact on people’s lives through her art.

Some people dance as a hobby, others as a passion, while others use it as a pastime – but what sets them free is the act of dancing. It would be a lie if you said these dancers didn’t make you tap your feet. We’d love to hear what dance accounts you like to follow.
