Shan & Raj have been the lead Dance Coaches in Tango for a Bollywood Blockbuster and have also partnered with the Argentine consulate to promote Tango as a dance form. As official organisers of DanceSport Championship  competitions for the past 5 years, they have been closely affiliated to the World Dance Council (a top DanceSport body in the world) for 3 years.

As passionate dancers themselves, they are extremely committed to their teaching and students and go beyond the call of duty to ensure that their students are able to bring out the best in themselves.

Their teaching style in competitive dancing is much more specific and rigorous, targeting the training of each and every muscle group and working on control and core strength, along with the dance routines. Here, the focus is on transforming the quality of DanceSport, in a manner laid down by the World Champions.
