Whether it's the background music in an elevator, or the dhol on stage, when Jamila hears music, she can't help but dance. Jamila's introduction to dance was through competitive gymnastics, where studying ballet in conjunction was the norm. Soon, dance took over, and she added tap and jazz to her repertoire. Jamila credits her introduction to Bollywood and Bhangra dance to Dil Se, Stanford's Hind Film Dance team. She danced competitively with Dil Se for 3 years, earning a spot on the national stage at Best of the Best in New York City. Always eager to explore new dance styles, she later competed in Ballroom dance, focusing on Swing and Waltz. Originally hailing from Canada and Arkansas, she's delighted to have found a home with in San Francisco with the Duniya community.
