More About Reema Limson
I am blessed to start my dance journey at the tender age of 8yrs at the auspicious guidance of Guru Kalamandalam Shakuntala Devi. I was trained in Bharatnatyam that is an elegant dance form that comprises of hand gestures- Mudras, body postures, sharp movements, and distinct facial expressions-Abhinaya. Later on, I learned the Indian Contemporary style of dancing also from Sri Sarath Nair at Lakshya Academy. Am also a Certified PraiseMoves instructor, (The Christian alternative to Yoga )As Jesus Christ, our Savour blessed me with a deep understanding of the Scriptures, which led me to choreograph dance sequences for expressing my faith and worship in Christ through the Indian dance forms. This led to Rejoiceingrace, my Christian dance, and fitness studio where this beautiful journey has been going forward to bless others to Worship the Lord in our cultural and traditional roots. I am blessed to be a wife and mom to 2 sons who have encouraged me in this journey. Apart from being a Dentist by profession, dance and fitness have always been my passion to pursue.
