Reshma Gajjar


Reshma Gajjar is a first generation American created by her outstanding Indian parents. Raised in California in the Bay Area, she moved to Los Angeles on a scholarship at the EDGE Performing Arts Center. She became a citizen of the world while on tour dancing for Madonna, Ricky Martin and A.R. Rahman.

Her time on stage is balanced with her experience in front of the camera, performing for numerous television and film productions. Most notably in her recurring role as Sondi on two seasons of VH1's smash television show Hit The Floor, Reshma also danced in American Beauty, 500 Days of Summer, The Muppets Movie, Glee, 2 Broke Girls, The New Girl, Parks & Recreation, Dancing with the Stars, The Oscars, The Grammy's, VMAs and Oprah. Music video work includes Prince, Kelly Clarkson, Hozier, The Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder as well as being featured in commercials for Levis, Diesel and Apple.

While in London, Reshma began working as a choreographer, while also dancing for X Factor and then booked the Michael Jackson "This Is It" Tour...may he rest in peace.

Passionate to serve her motherland, Reshma lived in India and choreographed a musical with children of the Mumbai slums. This volunteer effort made through the NGO Akanksha, proved an experience that profoundly effected her. She also played in the world of Bollywood, acting and producing a short film.

Currently she resides in Los Angeles, enjoying the opportunities to collaborate with artists and performing with Hysterica Dance Company, Harlow Gold, and Ryan Heffington.  When she isn't dancing she finds herself stalking the elderly for fashion inspiration and wisdom.
