VI-Desi Vibes: Sandeepa Dhar
Spain – theatre – Shakespeare – Australian Dance Theatre – that’s impressive! How did the West Side Story happen?
Sandeepa Dhar: I have been a dancer since I was a toddler. After having trained with Shiamak and Terrance for about 8 years, I had the urge to study dance at the Australian Dance School for which I won a scholarship. While studying there, I auditioned for the role of Maria and got it. That’s how the journey of West Side Story started. After 6 months of strenuous rehearsals, we staged out our first show in Australia. And since then we’ve performed in over 8 countries with over 100 shows.
Have you been associated with theatre before?
I used to do theatre in school and college but nothing very specific. My biggest break is this international musical.
