About Rabia 
Born in Mumbai, India, Rabia's passion for dance blossomed during her college years. While pursuing her studies in the U.S, she chose to minor in dance, a decision that ignited her curiosity to explore various dance forms from around the globe, with a particular emphasis on Bollywood and Bhangra from her homeland. Immersed in her dance minor, Rabia found herself choreographing vibrant Bollywood dance pieces for her fellow university students, both during her academic tenure and beyond. Following her graduation, she continued to share her expertise by teaching weekly Bollywood classes in Monterey, California, enriching the local community with the exuberance and grace of Indian dance culture.
Since 2018, Rabia relocated to Sonoma County. Presently, she is an active member of the Joweh RAW dance troupe. Within this role, Joweh has been privileged to have her choreograph numerous Bollywood dances for the troupe's performances at various events across Northern California.
