“I had the incredible pleasure of working with Ajna Dance Company for the Launch of the International Fistula Day at the UN which I produced on May 23rd. They are talented, beautiful, graceful, fun and breathtaking to watch. I can’t wait to work with them again. Their performance was pure magic!” Julie-Ann Marshall of J Marshall Events.

“Minila taught the Henna Asian Women’s Group members dance and exercise for two months. The classes were perfect to get our members more active and engaged in physical exercise to music they love. Being a small charity with varied needs, we have enjoyed working with Minila for her calm professionalism, and for the fun and focus she brings to each class. I strongly recommend Ajna to anyone interested in dance and getting fit.” – Mamta

“Minila helped us out during a charity event. She took on a workshop with our guests, teaching a basic dance routine in a fusion style. It was an energetic performance and a very engaging teaching style. The professionalism and quality of the service was fantastic. It was pitched at the perfect level and we very much enjoyed working with them. I would defiantly use Ajna again. If you want energy, creativity and fun, Ajna is the perfect company. I would recommend them to anyone!” – Kshitij

‘I highly recommend Minila Shah as a choreographer! She set up a great private Bollywood dance lesson for a bachelorette party I threw in May, and then went out of her way to give us a second lesson and make a video so that a few of us could bust a move at my friend’s Sangeet a month later. It was a blast, and our dance got rave reviews. I can’t wait to check out more of her classes!’ – Maria

Minila2‘I always loved Minila’s dance classes. She is a truly gifted dancer and a wonderful dance instructor. I was sad to see her go when she left the UK for NYC.’ – Shivangi

“Working with Minila was fantastic! She was brought into Dancing on Ice by Jane Torvil and Chris Dean to choreograph a Bollywood number to Jai Ho for myself and my skating partner Dan Whiston. Her choreography was great and she was willing to let us have our own input too. Her Jai Ho creation will go down in Dancing on Ice history!” Hayley Tamaddon (ITV’s 2010 Dancing on Ice Winner)

“Minila saved my life when my sister and I were asked to do a dance at our cousin’s Sangeet/Henna party – which we were told was being styled very much on the one from the film “Monsoon Wedding!”  Minila totally saved the day by choreographing a brilliant version of ‘Aaja Naachle’ for us which went down really well and best of all, we really enjoyed performing it!  Since then I have taken her bollywood/bhangra course and the classes always give me such a buzz and never fail to brighten up dull evenings. We have brilliant music choices and great teaching which is broken down so well – and most of all it is great to meet lots of lovely people who also enjoy dancing!  I would wholly recommend Minila to anyone who likes to dance and am looking forward to the next Indian wedding I go to so I can show off my newly acquired skills!” – Reeta
