Soumya - BollyWorks

Soumya Gogula

Soumya has enjoyed dance since childhood and has performed with friends and family at various events throughout her life. During college, she was part of a Garba-Raas team and competed at intercollegiate Raas competitions across the nation. After graduating and working in the Midwest, life brought her to the Pacific Northwest where she joined the BollyWorks team. Today Soumya is an instrumental part of BollyWorks on the front and back end. She works as a BollyWorks instructor for our choreography classes and master instructor for BollyWorks Fitness. She is our audio/visual manager for Project Bollywood and plays an integral part in all our classes and productions.

Soumya is really excited to teach and share her passion for dance and is looking forward to seeing you in class. When she’s not dancing, Soumya loves to curl up on her couch with a good book or to watch movies – she prefers staying indoors away from the Seattle rains!
