Isha Sharvani, her name literally means one who is married to the god of dance.
The way Isha mixes the elements of kathak, yoga, gymnastics and ballet in her dance is quite incredible. She has been training under her danseuse mother Daksha Seth since she was seven and has given performances in 22 countries over the last seven years.
Isha was last seen in the famous dance reality TV show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 5. She danced her way to the finale by performing an aerial act with one hand in a cast. Thereafter, she injured herself during rehearsals and had to quit the show.
Isha is known for her stylistic Indian contemporary and aerial dance performances and is now the lead dancer of her mother Daksha Seth’s Dance Company. She has been touring with her mother. The troupe recently performed a spectacular dance recital Shiva Shakti in the UK. In each of her acts, Isha is grace personified; whether it’s the nude bodysuit she is using as a prop, the Mallakhamb pole or simply the water. She is elegant as she fights while she’s suspended in the air with a sword in her hand; almost reminding us of Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. And just when we think she’s reached her limit, Isha surprises us by playing with fire.
Actor-danseuse Isha Sharvani is not too worried about her Bollywood career now, for she has her dancing to fall back on.
