Born and brought up in India Uttara started learning Indian Classical Dancing "Kathak" at the age of 9. After continuing her classical training in India for over 12 years, she came to United States in 2002 for future studies when she started exploring partner dancing leading to Latin & Ballroom dancing.
To Uttara, dancing is a form of meditation and her goal is to spread this feeling and promote fitness and stress relief in the form of dancing.
Uttara finished her teacher training diploma in American Styles under Tommye Giacchino, a winner of “The British Open Invitational Exhibition Championship” known to most as Blackpool. She has trained and continues to train with some of other top dancers and coaches such as Peter Minkov, Emmanuel Pierre-Antoine & Liana Churilova, Ray Rivers and not to mention our master coach Lydia Petrigova.
