Bollywood instructor Soumya Gogula works as a Project Manager at UW Medicine IT Services. Dancing since childhood, she has a passion for dance and fitness. Soumya grew up choreographing and performing Bollywood dances with friends and family at community events. She was part of a dance team and has competed at intercollegiate competitions across the nation. Training for these competitions was challenging and was more than dance — it was a lot about fitness. She learned that in order to be a better dancer on-stage, she needed to be a fitter individual off-stage. This is where her interest in fitness really began. Today, Soumya combines her love of dance and fitness through BollyWorks Fitness as a master instructor and trainer, bringing fun Bollywood-inspired dance-fitness workouts to the PNW and now to the UW!
