Amit Patel is a professional dancer, choreographer, and teacher living in Los Angeles.

 

As a first generation Indian American, Amit strives to fuse his cultures by bringing together different disciplines of dance. He is a pioneer of an unconventional style of dance called "Indian Contemporary," something Amit discovered when he fused his Eastern culture with his Western training. Amit is equally notable for his rebellious pieces in heels, known as “Bollywood Heels,” which challenge the norms of sexual identity in dance. 

 

His dance training consists of Bollywood Fusion, Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet, and an extensive training in Contemporary and Modern Dance.

His professional experience includes 10+ years as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher for the Mona Khan Company, as well as a professional dancer and choreographer for Bliss Dance Company for 6 years. He has also taught on an international platform at the Nordics Biggest Indian Dance Festival in Tempere, Finland as well as the London School of Bollywood; teaching both Indian Contemporary & Bollywood Heels.
