About Us

Delhi Dance Academy was founded on the 19th of June 2008 by Shree Bhupinder Singh with a view of providing quality dance education with high class professional infrastructure at affordable prices in Delhi. Today, Delhi Dance Academy is one of the better known names for high quality dance education, has been featured on many lifestyle TV channels and national newspapers as the best in its field. DDA was awarded “The Best Dance Academy in Delhi” in Jan 2014 at the Brands Academy Business and Service Excellence Awards. In 2015, Delhi Dance Academy was awarded the “Certificate of Excellence” by TripAdvisor.com.

It stands as one of the country’s most visible dance institutes on the Internet with 177,700 visits in all of 2015.

The academy provides opportunities like free masterclasses, paid international and national artist workshops and the annual stage show AVAJARRED to students.

DDA is also the preferred destination for foreigners visiting India interested in learning about Bollywood and Indian Folk and Classical dance forms like Bhangra, Garbha, Dandiya, Ghoomer and Belly Dancing. Delhi Dance Academy’s 2 hour dance session on Bollywood, Bhangra, Garbha/Dandiya and elements of Belly dance is called “Namaste India Dance Workshop” and has been made popular by various travel websites. DDA works with various inbound tour operators to make these workshops available to foreigners visiting Delhi. The Namaste India Workshop has been rated “Excellent” on TripAdvisor.com.

Other services offered include conducting fitness and dance classes at various organisations in Delhi. Our corporate classes have received excellent reviews from our corporate clients. Our dance troupe has performed at various events around the country and is reputed for being professional and coordinated. With many hundreds of families serviced for wedding dancing, our wedding choreography division is a one stop shop starting from song selection, making high quality medleys to shooting periodic videos to help families remember the steps (shared privately on Youtube). From single couple choreography of 3-4 minutes to full family performances of upto 1 hour of dancing, we have received fantastic reviews for our work at marriage and sangeet functions.

The emphasis at Delhi Dance Academy has always been on providing education that matters, on managing the centers professionally – starting and ending classes on time, providing a comfortable environment to students, choosing well trained, professional instructors and so on. DDA has done very well in standardizing the process, using technology for managing the institutes.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.

In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)

At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.
