Neenu Vishnu Pratap
My passion for Indian classical dance
started when I was six years old. I
learned dance for ten years and very
much enjoy both classical dance and
songs. Being a member of Raaga has
helped me to be a part of the community
that is constantly trying to preserve
and promote the Indian cultural forms.
