Divya Mowji

Divya has been learning Kathak from her Guruji, Punam Kumar, since the young age of 6. Over the years she grew to appreciate the graceful dance form as well as its rich history in Indian culture. Her favorite part about learning Kathak is being challenged by complex footwork patterns and chakkars (spins). During her senior year of high school, Divya trained for her Samarpan (solo debut), which taught her the value of discipline and hard work. Since then, she has continued to participate in recitals and performances while also pursuing her studies. Divya obtained her Bachelor’s degree from UCLA in 2015 and her Master’s degree from USC in 2019. She now works as a healthcare consultant at KPMG in Los Angeles. Divya loves being connected to her Indian roots through Kathak and hopes to continue dancing and sharing this beautiful art form.

Shivam Arts School of Kathak Dance has multiple locations across Southern California and is now enrolling new students!
