21 year old Dance Instructor Vickash Beni Kat On Fighting Hardships To Pursue His Dreams

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston S. Churchill

Not everyone has the luxury to follow their passion and find clear road and opportunities on the way. For many following their dreams means going agasitn all odds, maybe even their own loved ones and family. Dance, to Vickash, pure love and he knew this path would have roadblocks but he chose to chase his dream regardless of the obstacles in front of him.

Vickash Beni Kat, also known as Ushindi, comes from a conservative Christian family where it was difficult for Vickash’s parents to accept and appreciate his passion for dance. As if this extreme opposition was not enough, his father also happens to be a pastor which only meant that his dancing skills would be accepted if they were for the gospel.

However this was not a good enough reason for Vickash to give up and he never did. Today, he is a successful 21 year old dance instructor who has coached almost 100 students at a go and has trained almost 400 students for a week at his Paris workshop. Vickash has also been the proud participant of the Bety First Flash Mob on World Aids Day. To him dance is the language of his soul and liberated him like nothing else could. He believes in progress, not perfection and this is what has brought him to the place where he is now.
