Shefalee’s Kathak career began at age 5 after her mother introduced her to the artform, and her passion for dance hasn’t withered since. Through Guru Punam Kumar’s training, not only has she mastered her skills as a dancer, she also further connected with her Indian culture, music, community, and overcame stage fright as she was very shy growing up. Kathak allows Shefalee to express herself without words.
Shefalee earned her B.A. from UCLA and currently works in Los Angeles for a start-up in the healthy food space. Her free time is spent traveling around the world exploring new cities, cultures, and cuisines, and you can always find her in the kitchen perfecting her latest recipe.
