One of the highlights of the events was a successful combination of dance and comedy on stage at the Annual Show; calling on local Comedians Sunny Ahuja and RJ Ved.

The Inspiring Team behind MAD (Mad About Dance)

Standard

One of the best attributes of a true leader is their ability to acknowledge and empower their team; and this is something Mahima Mehta has been able to achieve at MAD.

Team-shot

Founder Mahima Mehta, celebrates a year of perseverance, hard work and triumph of her Dance institute MAD (Mad about Dance) on December 18th at the Indian High School, Dubai Silicon Oasis.

Just 2 years ago Mahima Mehta was a student who joined to get healthy at a Dance school (where now MAD institute is) where she enjoyed the freedom of dancing and getting some fitness in her routine. Mahima was a passionate marketer with over a decade in the marketing field under her belt; she always wanted to establish her own business; and when her dance school shut down its doors- Mahima finally took that giant step of pitching for the Dance Institute location. She not only managed to get the space but she managed to retain the dance crew as well.

Mahima Mehta – Founder of MAD says Sometimes you just have to go with your gut, and take that leap of faith to realize that it will all work out fine. I think more than dance, my personal passion is to see people transform through their passions. MAD has given me that opportunity to truly empower and offer a positive change in people’s lives. I am able to accomplish and move forward thanks to a team who are extremely passionate and hardworking that they constantly inspire me to achieve higher goals.”
