Himanshu decided to step into entrepreneurial shoes and take his dancing talent a notch above the rest and inspire the youth of today to give wings to their dreams. Pushing limits and going a step ahead than the others is something that has always made Himanshu different from the other talented dancers’ cum performers.
But the road to success has not been an easy one for Himanshu, just like many other struggling artists. At 12, he realized that he had a knack for dancing but just like most Indian parents, he never received a green signal from his family. “Dancer banana hai? Padhai mein dhyaan de, layak ban doctor, engineer, mba bolta samjh aata par dancer yeh bhi koi career hua bhala, ” was the first honest reaction of his simple parents. But Himanshu did not lose hope and was determined to gain the confidence and support of his parents who were completely against his chosen path. But the path was not a bed of roses instead it was a path full of thorns and obstacles which the young lad decided to overcome. Hiding the truth from his parents and his school teachers, Himanshu started learning dancing from a local academy. To pay the fees for the academy he started to teach boys around his locality and managed to earn a few bucks with which he could barely pay his fees. At the same time, he had to also go to school so that his parents and teachers could not get a chance to complain. But even while at school his mind was wandering, his ears could hear music all the time and his soul urged to dance on every beat. There were many times when he was thrashed at home and school because of this urge which diverted his attention from academics.

Pushing his way and overcoming one obstacle after another, the young teenager started paving his way to his chosen career path and enhanced his dancing and learnt a great deal from his dance maestros i.e. his gurus who he gives complete credit to. Later on, he was also chosen to assist his mentors and try his luck at being the teacher instead of a student. It was then he realized that knowledge gained is one thing and using the knowledge you gain to bring a difference to someone else’s life is completely different and brings a sense of fulfillment within. But family pressures once again pulled his dancing strings and he was forced to join a job. But destiny had bigger plans for him and within a couple of months, he explored opportunities to associate himself with some well-known brands and dance crews. From being a part of Ryan Martyr’s crew to doing commercials for brands such as Coca-Cola, Videocon, Hero, Apple, Gionee, Hajmola, Herbal Life to being a part of Terence Lewis Dance troupe at World Cultural Festival which was graced by honorary Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also performing with Punjabi legend Gurdas Maan on the occasion of 300th death anniversary of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, Himanshu was determined to make a mark and a name for himself.
