PROSENJIT GUY KUNDU (INDIA)
~ International Choreographer. Dancer. Actor. Model. ~
Camp Kundu ~ Kundu House Project
Aka Kundu, I met him online via our mutual beautiful friend and you have heard me say her name thousands of time, Reina Gandy! I was actually pretty shocked and humbled that Kundu believed in this vision and was all hands on in supporting this project! "Having danced professionally since 1998, Prosenjit Guy Kundu has been actively involved in the Underground Dance Scene for over 3 decades. Prosenjit, who is of Indian and French descent discovered the art of Hip Hop dancing in 1990 in Virginia, when he was only 15. Two years later at 17, he stumbled upon a D.C. house club by the name of Tracks and fell in love with the energy and flow of House dance. On turning 18, he attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where he acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance and Choreography. By day, he formally trained in the dance forms of Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap and African at VCU and by night was pursuing dance styles such as Breakdancing, House, Hip Hop, Popping and Locking at underground clubs. After his schooling, he moved to New York City to fuel his fervor for dance and realise his vision. Prosenjit began teaching at studios throughout Manhattan while simultaneously working as a professional dancer. Today, he continues to perfect his craft as a dancer, his teaching and dancing skills has taken him across the globe to countries like Spain, England, Italy, Netherlands, Germany, France, Denmark, Korea, Taiwan, India, Nepal, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Canada and USA."
For an international dance figure of his calibre to support a noname amateur artist like myself says a lot about his character and compassion in supporting all artists of all stages from all walks of life! Check out Kundu's work throughout the years (very impressive!) and what he's got going on now!
