Meet the Director

Gopi Engineer


Gopi Engineer is a dance artist, choreographer, instructor and performer whose dance journey spans over 30 years in Bollywood, Indian folk, classical dance forms such as Kathak and Bharat Natyam along with contemporary styles including tap, ballet, jazz, hip hop and modern dance.  As the Founder and Artistic director of Meher Dance Co. Gopi teaches dance globally to kids and adults alike, leads a professional dance troupe as well as engages in dance projects internationally in film and television. Her passion oozes through her creative ventures; but nothing compares to the joy she experiences in teaching dance from all skill levels and seeing them grown as artists.  She has a deep belief that dance is an element of grace in her life, which she tries to share with the world through Meher Dance, which means "grace" in Hindi.

She started learning dance at an early age of two from her mother, Mina. Her formal dance training started with folk dance forms such as garba, raas, bhangra and lavni, followed by classical training in Bharat Natyam with Gira Patel in the US and Usha Rana in Valsad, India. Then she trained in Kathak with Hanmant Rao in Illinois.  Her western dance training stems from several dance studios in Tennessee as well as University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign. She also has music training with tabla lessons from David Courntey in Houston and Nikhil Bhavsar in Gujrat along with vocal lessons from the late Bikhu Bhai Bhavsar in Valsad, India.
