Neha Shridhar: Breaking the stereotype, Parents in Law encouraged her to achieve her dreams


According to rudimentary thinking, girls were considered a burden. Girls were deprived of education and skills. They were not allowed to follow their dreams. Especially the marital home of a girl is considered to demotivate her to pursue her dreams.  This stereotype is broken by two families. Both the parents of the girl and marital home, immensely helped her and encouraged her to fulfill her dreams. Her name is Neha Shridhar. She started learning dance in a joint family. She performed on a stage 17 years ago and that was the beginning of a beautiful journey. 
She started from a very small room and has now opened a dance studio by the name of ‘Beats N Steps’. She did many dance related certified courses after she got married. She learnt different dance forms from famous institutes and dance teachers. 
She has completed many courses in the field of dance and music. She did Visharad in Kathak from Bhatkhande, Lucknow, Praveen in Kathak, Prabhakar in Tabla and Prabhakar in vocal from Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Professional degree course from Bhangra School of Dance, Delhi, Certified Kathak Courses from Kumar Sharma. 
She has 17 years of experience of teaching dance in her own studio. Her studio is authorised by the Government of Maharashtra to conduct certified courses in Vocational skill education by virtue of being a mission education center. She has given many spellbound performances in school cultural events and annual functions. She has also been invited as a judge in PRONES ASIA International Dance Competition, inter school competitions in Haldwani, Rudrapur, Nainital and Bheemtal. She has also choreographed thousands of Sangeet events. 
She has been awarded as ‘Kala Guru’ on the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima. She has been honoured as Best Choreographer and Best Dancer and various places. Often girls are told not to dream, not to set any goals as the marital home may not like it or may not support it. But the husband and Parents in law of Neha Shridhar have set an example. They encouraged, motivated and supported her because of which she was able to achieve her dreams and goals. People should learn from them and take inspiration.
