Shyam Dattani

South Asian

Shyam began his dance journey within Kathak at the age of two. As he progressed, his interest in South Asian dance grew, exploring other disciplines briefly. Kathak has remained his strength, whilst undergoing vigorous training under different teachers, including Abhay Shankar Mishra at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. His love for performing has driven him to take up full-time training, working towards vocational qualifications. Being a passionate dancer, who is developing into a well-versed and all rounded young artist under the guidance of his Guru Urja Desai Thakore, Shyam aspires to challenge himself, performing pieces of established choreographers. Alongside inspiring other young people to pursue their passions, he also hopes to pass on his love for dance through teaching, in the near future.
