This veteran of the Canadian dance community serves up Bollywood excellence from his Bengali roots – a truly proficient performer ready to steal the show.

A Toronto resident with strong Bengali roots, Adnan has been involved with Bollywood dance for most of his life. With over 12 years of professional experience, he has performed in both Canada and the U.S. and had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of the hottest Bollywood Stars such as Ranveer Singh, Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, etc., as well as performing for both the Prime Ministers of India and Canada. 

Co-founder of the TAAJ Entertainment dance company, Adnan hopes to create a platform and brand name to explore artistic pursuits, as well as perform professionally. A recent highlight for TAAJ and Adnan is choreographing for ‘Bollywood Reimagined’ – a queer driven initiative to subvert the Bollywood Genre and bring greater representation to the South Asian 2SLGBTQIA+. He is also an instructor with the Bollywood Dance School of Canada and spends his weeknights training students of all levels. 

Outside of dance, Adnan has also started volunteering with the Soch Mental Health organization in order to facilitate discussions about the intersections of homosexuality, the South Asian identity, and mental health. He is earnest about taking on new challenges and strives to live life to the fullest with his personal motto: “Choose today, not tomorrow”.
