Sharada is a student of dance.  Sharada began learning dance at the tender age of 8, when she first took a jazz class at summer camp. In high school, she picked up some tap dancing to add to her jazz while performing in musical theater as a backup dancer and ensemble singer. 

  In college, Sharada increased her repertoire to Ballroom and East Coast Swing dancing. She tried her hand at the classic smooth dances, including waltz and fox trot, but found a special affinity for the rhythm dances like swing, cha cha, and salsa, especially when she placed 2nd in a beginner's ballroom competition in East Coast Swing.   

  Finally, Sharada was asked to join The Bollywood Angels and began to learn Bollywood and Bhangra dancing in the winter of 2010.  Her love of dance is eclipsed only by her love of knowledge in general, and of learning new skills.
