Over the years, he has accumulated a vast repertoire of skills in diverse dance styles (he is also a certified Zumba instructor); along with an ardent fan following of students and instructors who love and respect him. He loves delighting his students with his unique signature moves.
His passion, however, is the “passion to move…” As an intuitive, creative dancer, Arun has always gone deeper than steps and timing into the actual rhythm and soul of a dance form. To him, dance is the soul speaking through the body. He believes that dancing is the deepest, most compelling expression of the soul. Ask him to talk to you about dance, and you’ll come away inspired by the way he speaks about the beauty of each dance form in simple but profound words. Arun’s favorite motto is, “There’s a dancer hidden in everybody.” That deep-rooted belief, coupled with his infectious attitude, gets everyone, be they 6 or 66, to dance to the song in their hearts. It is so common to see students of all ages grinning happily and dancing to music with gay abandon in the studio. It’s why people fall in love with Zealers and keep coming back for more.
Often, students are seen swaying to the music in the studio and smiling. Ask them why they’re smiling, and they’ll say, “We’re just happy.”
“It’s the passion to move,” says Arun.
