About Aanchal

Aanchal Gupta

An engineer by education and dancer by heart.


7 years back I decided to take my passion as my career, leaving my corporate job and getting into dance. Bollywood dance has always been an integral part of my life, right from dancing in school events to professional teaching and performances. 6 years back I found my new dance love in Salsa and Bachata marking the beginning of my Latin dance journey.

Professionally trained in Bharatnatyam, Salsa, Bachata, Bollywood and Indian Folk dances, I have started sharing my knowledge with the community and provide them with the best shows. With all these years of dancing and training I realised dance is one of the best way of expression and a perfect form of fitness. In the process of exploration I got introduced to Yoga and got to see a complete different way of living. Since then I started training myself in yoga. Yoga is not only a great form of physical fitness but it also teaches us how to work our mind through our body.

BollyRed - UK Bollywood Dance Company came into existence in 2016 after I moved to UK from Mumbai-India. The company works towards providing the best Indian dance services, may it be festival workshops, weddings, event performances, regular classes, choreography or kid’s parties. While reaching to various parts of South West England and London in the span of two years BollyRed has been on the top stages of UK which includes London Diwali Celebration at Trafalgar Square, Bristol Harbour Festival, Bristol Pride, Tribe of Doris Festival, Camp Bestival, Womad etc.
