For those that know Reemlee, the first word that comes to mind is DANCE! Reemlee has been participating in numerous cultural events in the Bengali community since she was 5 years old. Reemlee graduated from Kalapadma Dance Academy in June of 2008 finishing her arrangetram (an arrangetram consists of 10 solo bharatnatyam dances back-to-back as a dancer's debut after finishing her basic training) after taking classes for 12 years. She was also a member of Desi Vibes performing at various venues from 2006-2010. Reemlee also does solo shows and teaches private & group classes. Reemlee decided to create Culture In Motion as a way to share her passion & love for dance with those around her!
Over 10 years of memories, dancing and fun
Culture In Motion has come a long way since Reemlee started teaching in her parent's basement in 2010. After teaching dance in a shared elementary school classroom for 4 years, Reemlee made the leap of faith and passion and opened a studio in Northbrook Court Mall in 2018. With a desire to celebrate cultural diversity in a fun and welcoming way, opening the studio was truly a labor of love! What started as a group of 3 students grew into a community of over 60+ students and we've only just begun!
A variety of dance styles to celebrate the different backgrounds of our student body
With Reemlee's 12 year intensive bharatnatyam education, 20+ years of fusion dance performance experience and 10+ years of teaching dance, students can be rest assured that they will be under the tutelage of an instructor that is as passionate about dance as she is about her students. With a variety of dance style training under her belt, Reemlee brings her extensive influences of Hip Hop, Lyrical, Kathak, Bhangra, Rabindra Sangeet and folk into the classroom to celebrate the various sights and sounds of dance.
Every student will learn, love and dance!
At Culture In Motion we strive to create a safe space for our students that is not just about dance, but about connection and creativity. Whether you enroll in a group class or a private lesson you will feel like you are a part of the CIM family. It is through the medium of dance that students feel their best and connect with others. We are committed to providing our students with the best dance experience possible full of fun and personal growth.
