Sneha Kapoor (born April 18, 1986 in Bangalore, India) is an Indian salsa dancer, choreographer, and instructor. She is popularly known as "The Indian Salsa Princess".[1] Now living in Mumbai, she began her career with a dance company in Bangalore. It was the beginning of a career that embraced different dance forms like salsa, Bachata, merengue, Jive, hip-hop, adagio and Bollywood. She is best known for her character of Sharon Rai Prakash on the popular youth show Dil Dosti Dance

Career[edit]

Sneha Kapoor originally was an athlete, but because of some causes after she met Richard Tholoor she decided to become a dancer instead, joining Lourd Vijay's dance studio in Bangalore. During her tenure at the school, Kapoor and her dance partner Tholoor won several awards and trophies in salsa championships across the world. Kapoor broke a Guinness World Record for "Most Number of Swing Dance Flips in a Minute". The record of 33 flips in a minute was set four years ago in the UK, but Kapoor and her team of three dancers set the new record at 39 flips.

She participated in Dance India Dance Season 3 and did extremely well but was eliminated on January 22, 2012.

Kapoor has choreographed for the reality shows Just Dance and Perfect Bride. She also choreographed the South Indian movie, Jugaari and Madhur Bhandarkar's film, Heroine. She performs and teaches dance workshops nationally and internationally. She played one of the lead roles in Dil Dosti Dance as Sharon Rai Prakash. She was loved by audiences as Sharon and her pair with Shantanu Maheshwari who played Swayam Shekhwat on the show was also popular. She later quit the show and was replaced by Vrushika Mehta. The legacy of Sharon Rai Prakash left behind by Sneha is still remembered.
