Guest Choreographers and Artists
During the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, we were blessed to have so many wonderful choreographers and artists from around the world volunteer their time to teach choreography and fitness routines to our beautiful SoulDeevas! We're pleased to introduce them here and we thank them for working with us!
MS. ANNA-MORIAH (North Carolina)(Ballet)
Ms. Anna-Moriah was with us in July, and taught the Deevas Ballet!
She trained professionally in ballet for the past 13 years and has five years of teaching experience. She has trained and performed with the Carolina Ballet, located in Raleigh, North Carolina
MS. ASHWITHA (United Kingdom)(Bollywood)
Ms. Ashwitha was with us in July, and taught the Deevas Bollywood! Bollywood dance is the dance form that is used in Indian films. It is a mixture of numerous styles that include belly-dancing, hip hop, Indian folk, and contemporary dance. The dance moves are incomplete without dramatic facial expressions and energy. Some people love Bollywood because it exposes them to Indian culture. Others enjoy the vibrant music and colorful outfits. Whatever the reason, Bollywood dancing is a small glimpse into Indian culture that everyone should experience.
Born and raised in Singapore, she is currently studying medicine in the UK. She has received extensive training in Indian classical dance (Bharatnatyam) and is extremely passionate about sharing her gift with young people.
MS. JINNY (California)(Ballet)

Born and raised in New Jersey, she loves taking classes of all styles and choreographing soings with strong, danceable beats. She feels that teaching dance is a rewarding and fun process - from the choreographing to the teaching and we are honored that she chose to share that experience with the SoulDeevas!
