Sonalee Vyas emigrated to the U.S. from India when she was 14 years old, bringing with her 10 years of training in Indian classical dances — Bharat Natyam and Kathak— along with Bollywood, jazz, ballet, tap, modern and Latin dance styles. She has performed in the U.S. for the past 12 years and has gained worldwide recognition as both a dancer and choreographer.

She founded the dance company Naach Sensation and currently is the creative director of Sonalee’s Dance Studio. She has received numerous awards including the Asian American Heritage Council award.
