4) Wow, such a noble thought, so how did your journey begin?
A – When I was in Grade 11, I used to teach dance to friends siblings at a very basic cost to take out my own expenses and with time I started taking school batches and ladies batches at home and also started going to Mumbai and went to many classes for my exploration, also used to teach college groups in garden spaces as I did not have my own space to teach. Since I was very much interested in dance, my parents thought to put me in dance class in order to get more exposure. My parents made me join ‘Ganesh Acharya Dance Academy’ and I kept exploring myself to the fullest and used to travel to Mumbai on and off and used to take personal classes from Ganesh Acharya Sir as well at his studio in Mumbai. I also represented India in Italy and Croatia in 2008. Than I started handling his Surat branch and one fine day I got a thought to start my own dance class with my wife Sonam and that’s how ‘tap in…. sapan’s dance class’ came into existence in 2010 on May, 3rd. With time my group has performed in front of well known celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, Ranveer Singh, etc.

But, my quality dance moves which was and will dependably be my first priority influenced me to buckle up and influences me to stand where I am today and still there’s significantly more to accomplish.
7) How did you know this is the thing you wanted to do for the rest of your life?
A – I was excessively required into dnace for quite few years and at whatever point I thought for any choice of work or career, dance was the only thing that rung a bell in my mind and I was certain that dance is the thing for which I am made for.
