"Great dancers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion."
- Martha Graham
Dance isn’t simply an activity. It is an art creating eternal moments that reach the very soul of a being. Sumit Khetan Entertainment Co. embodies this motto. A company that was founded by Sumit Khetan, who embarked his creative journey as a passionate dancer. His fervor for melodious movements metamorphosed into choreography and today, he stands an accomplished creator of magic as an Artistic Director who personifies storytelling in the form of caper and frolic.
The key to becoming a master of dance is to learn from the masters themselves. Keen to get a strong foothold in the very essence of authentic dance forms, Sumit Khetan traveled halfway across the globe to New York where he had set his heart upon learning from the very best- the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, the oldest and most renowned dance company in the world. His unmatched talent and undying dedication to dance got him accepted into the prestigious academy within the first audition. His dynamism to conquer the soul of dance led him to reach deeper and learn at the remarkable Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and of course the legendary Broadway Dance Centre.
Artistic inspiration. Creative execution. The life of an artiste is very different. An artiste doesn't work for himself. He performs for others. There are many paths that an artiste can take but all of them lead to one single destination - the hearts of the audience. So perform and make a special place in people’s hearts and minds. GO PERFORM!.
