Winner of 2nd Place Bellydancer of the World in one of the most prestigious bellydance competitions held in Germany, Leena has travelled to several countries such as UK USA, Egypt, Germany to train in, perform and teach bellydance.
India’s strong misogynistic view of this art form led her to start out her vision, Bwitchs International Bellydance, which aims at marrying art and activism by bringing about connection, inspiration and learning within the community while also serving humanity, She is the curator of Mumbais First International Bellydance Festival as well India’s First and largest International Bellydance Fusion Festival, . She also envisaged the World’s First bellydancing flash mob dedicated to the One Billion Rising Movement, as a tribute to Nirbhaya, the victim of a horrific torture and gang rape.
