    Sheetal Gandhi is a National Dance Performance (NDP) and MAP Fund award-winning choreographer, performer, and teacher based in Los Angeles, CA. Her research in the performing arts lies at the intersection of dance-theater, social activism, and intercultural performance. Gandhi's work has been described as “eloquent, inventive, virtuosic dance-theater” by the Philadelphia Inquirer utilizing “incisive commentary offset by brilliant touches of humor” (Narthaki). Gandhi's rhythm-based, theatrical dances comment on the social world in which we live. Her practice references the past, grounds itself in the present, and comments on the possibilities of the future.
