Ria Sood


Ria began dancing at the young age of five through Naach and consequently with the Mona Khan company. She worked her way from the basic to master level and in 2016, joined the ranks of the Mona Khan instructors.


Her dance philosophy: “I firmly believe that anyone can dance! No matter how little experience or knowledge one has with Bollywood dance, a bit of music and some simple steps can go a long way.”


Ria’s passion for teaching brings together two of her favorite things—working with children and bollywood dance—which makes being an instructor a rewarding experience.


When she’s not dancing, Ria helps elementary school students learn math and reading. She is a board member of the Youth Community Service Club (YCS), a club at her high school that focuses on organizing events, shows and fundraisers in order to raise money for local and international projects. She is also captain of her high school soccer team, and loves staying active.
