I’m Suma Akter, Dance is my first priority. In the beginning, I embarked on my journey in the theater and then transitioned to creating my own identity in the dance world after 2000. My dance education was shaped by my two amazing teachers, Majid Shikhaliev from Russia and Anand Das from India, who awarded me with my certificate.



Furthermore, I am proud to say that I have also received certification from Alliance Française de Dhaka. Since 2002, I have been teaching Western dance at Alliance Française de Dhaka, under the guidance of my beloved teacher, MAJID Shikhaliev. I’ve been assisting him for a significant period of time and have been a professional dance teacher at Alliance Française de Dhaka for the past 13 years.



In addition to teaching, I have been involved in various dance-related activities such as performing and choreographing for award functions, TVC and music video choreography, as well as collaborating with TV channels.
