DSI is today run by two highly qualified individuals, who bring a perfect blend of dance capabilities and corporate ethics to the business.
Shannon Benjamin & Rajeswari Vaidyanathan are DanceSport Athletes, performers and coaches who have trained with the Asia Paciﬁc & World Latin Champions and have competed and trained in Singapore, Hong Kong, Boston, Hungary, U.K, Thailand and Sri Lanka. He has represented India at the Indoor Asian Games in Macau, the World Cup Latin Championships and many more DanceSport Competitions.
The duo founded India’s premiere Latin American school “ Shan & Ragz DanceSport India” & also the “Indian DanceSport Council”, a national affiliate of the World Dance Council hosting Maharashtra State level & National Level competitions year -on – a year since 2009.
Today, they are successful coaches & performers in Latin American, Salsa, Bachata, Argentine Tango, Ballroom. Their style & techniques are authentic and hence very different from other schools across India. They create a different level of dancers & competitors, taking the company and their vision to celebrate DanceSport among Indian masses to newer heights. Their most recent feather in the cap is as a Latin Coach to Bollywood celebrities, Ranveer Singh & Vaani Kapoor for an upcoming Yash Raj Film.
What you learn from them is different from most schools in India as they follow the international syllabus and techniques that no other school does. Their claim to being the best Salsa & Latin school in Mumbai comes from a combination of passion and knowledge. Equipped with the best knowledge they provide individual attention in a group class too and do not have more than 15 students in a group class. Most classes are taken by Shan & Ragz together to maximise the benefit to the students.
