Noel Bajandas
OPEN HIP HOP

Noel Bajandas is the epitome of a "Master at his craft". Born and raised in Union CIty, New Jersey, a majority latin based community, Noel learned how to dance from his mother, who showed him the love and art of latin music and dance. MTV being his favorite station growing up, Noel trained himself by imitating all of the dances in their music videos, award shows and concert specials, which in turn, helped develop his natural raw talent into true passion. After joining his first dance company in New York City at age 18, Noel realized that this was the path he was intended for, and since has had the opportunity to share his art with Artists like Adam Lambert, Miley Cyrus, Toni Braxton, and Daddy Yankee, to name a few. He ran away with the circus for a while when he toured worldwide with Cirque Du Soleil's 'Delirium', the company’s first touring arena show, and worked on TV films “Camp Rock 2” and the ”Bring It On Series”. As a Choreographer, Noel has worked alongside Mia Michaels in shaping a few group productions on Season 5 of “So You Think You Can Dance”. He also worked on the” 2010 TV Land Award”s and “Dancing With The Stars”, and is currently working as Artistic Director and Choreographer for Billboard Dance Artist Consuelo Costin. Noel has also been part of The Waackers, a crew under the guidance of Kumari Suraj, since 2010 and has made a mark in the culture with his own signature style of sophistication and masculinity while keeping true to the art form. Noel teaches various styles of dance in Los Angeles at the International Dance Academy in Hollywood and is an original active faculty member of the Generation IV Dance Intensive.

Achinta S. McDaniel
BOLLYWOOD BHANGRA BEATS

"Truly beyond all spectacle [is] the dancing
seductress artistic director Achinta S. McDaniel, who brightens up the stage
with her presence and brings to the crowd a wave of enthusiasm that leaves them
yelling from their seats.” –
Eyespyla.com

Artistic
Director of Blue13 Dance Company, Achinta S. McDaniel is a pioneer of
contemporary Indian dance in the U.S.  She introduced her brand of modern
Bollywood dance to the West Coast over a decade ago.  A prolific
choreographer, performer, and instructor, McDaniel’s powerful and fresh style
draws from diverse techniques including ballet, jazz, tap, modern, hip hop,
Bhangra, Kathak, and Bollywood, to create spectacular and theatrical dance. She
is known for her madcap humor and unparalleled energy, as well as for her
experimentation with international styles and for inventive staging of her
signature Neo-Kathak and Bollywood-Tech styles. Her work is highly dramatic and
a real reflection of her upbringing: Eastern and Western, exotic, mysterious,
wild, rebellious and unconventional.  

McDaniel
has worked as a choreographer, consultant, and instructor on television shows
including: The Amazing Race, America's Got Talent, MTV's Parental Control, and
We TV's Culture Clash Weddings.  She has worked on feature films from
Hollywood to Mumbai, and with renowned artists to include: Timbaland,
Dustin Hoffman, Todd Haynes, Anupam Kher,
and legendary songstress,
Kavita Krishnamurthy.
 

 

In 1999, McDaniel founded
Blue13 Dance Company in New York City, performing and teaching across the
Tri-State area until 2001, when she relocated to Los Angeles. Achinta has
expanded Blue13 for over a decade, creating one of the country’s first
professional contemporary Indian dance theatre ensembles and touring on stages
around the world. McDaniel is LA’s top Indian dance instructor, teaching her
trademarked Bollywood Bhangra Beats classes at studios all over the city. For

Natasha Vee
BURLESQUE

The resident Bombshell Ballerina of Hells Belles Burlesque, Natasha Vee - as she is
known in Burlesque circles, defies the Hollywood blonde paradigm in more ways
than one. A trained ballerina with a technical expertise that trumps most of
her contemporaries, she studied with Napa Regional Dance Co., Marin Ballet, San
Francisco Ballet, and The Joffrey Ballet. In addition she was both a competitive cheerleader and dancer performing both jazz and hip hop styles. Natasha discovered the art of Burlesque when
she moved to Los Angeles to persue a degree in dance from Cal State Long Beach.
She quickly got turned on by the art form’s combination of classical dance and
intense, edgy expression of sexuality. Soon this self-proclaimed ‘Naughty
Ballerina’ traded in her pointe shoes for rhinestone bras, garter belts and
feather fans – and never looked back! At her core, Natasha is a driven, devoted
and inspired dancer/choreographer; a young woman with a clear vision for what
she wants out of life, and who can’t imagine doing anything else. Playful,
glamorous, flirty and flawless, her intense, heart-stopping classes and
performances command attention like no other. Natasha has been featured on
Ellen, Good Day LA, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Playboy, and VH1’s Saddle
Ranch. She has worked with musicians such as Dave Navarro, Billy Idol, Mark
McGrath, Robert Rodriguez, and Steve Stevens. Natasha has choreographed
numerous pieces for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlene, as well as "The
Supermodel" beauty pageant in Tokyo Japan.
