KhushDC member featured on NPR

Daniel Phoenix Singh, a long-time KhushDC member and former board member, was featured on NPR on Wednesday, October 5th for this incredible dance company Dakshina.  We're really proud of Dan and wish him the very best! 

Dan attributes his love of dance to Pamela Matthews, a long time friend, teacher, and mentor. Singh holds an MFA in dance, and he studied Bharata Natyam with Guru Meena Telikicherla for several years. He continues to train at the Maryland Youth Ballet. Singh has been studying the Cuban/Colombian variations of Salsa and Merengue with Javier Varela and Shawn Malone for over nine years and has been studying Tango with Sharna Fabiano for two years.
