Ramita Ravi, a dancer of Indian American origin made waves on the hit TV show ‘So you think you can dance’ when she auditioned for the show and performed a dance which can be described as a fusion of Indian Classical dance and contemporary dancing.
Fusing classical Indian and contemporary dancing, she says, helps her to express her own Indian-American identity and make her experiences accessible to members of both communities.
Ramita ravi is classically trained in dance forms like Bharatanatyam, contemporary, jazz and hip hop. She actually found the audition process very “nerve wracking and exciting.” Although dance is passion for her, she also graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in health and societies and is pursuing her master’s degree in public health.
Here is the video of her dance with her graceful movements which has everyone talking.
