Ruby Creative Dance
Art of Bollywood Dance

Our History                                                
Ruby Creative Dance was established in 2010 by its founder and current director Ruby Pal. The dance

academy had humble beginnings in the basement of her home. Her inspiration to start the academy
 
came from a realization that dance offered an excellent conduit to introduce students from the new

world to the rich cultural heritage of India. In the initial years the coursework was limited not only to

 Bharatanatyam or Odissi or folk dance India’s most renowned ancient classical dance form; but

Rabindranath Tagore dance, Bollywood dance, Indo-American hiphop dance, fusion dance too.

Ruby said "Dance is the art form in which human movement becomes the medium for

sensing, understanding, and communicating ideas, feelings, and experiences.Come join

Ruby Creative Dance in understanding what she really means. Together we will discover what we are
 
made of, and through dance, find ourselves.



Ruby Pal began her dancing career at the tender age of four under Childrens Little Theater (CLT)
 
Aban Mahal. She continued her advanced training in Odissi under Guru Muralidhar Majhi and 

Classical Bharatnatyam under Guru Thunkumani Kutti in Calcutta. She also received a year of
 
Kathakali training under Guru Balkrisnan Menon. Ruby performed Bollywood dances in India via
 
Stage shows. Ruby has also earned the love and devotion of her fans not only through dances, but 

through  numerous studies and practices. She got her M.Ed from the University of New Orleans in

the subject of Curriculum and Instruction. She has been successfully running a dance school in
