Nishi completed her post diploma in Kathak from Kathak Kendra and was invited soon after by the Song and Drama Division of Govt. of India where she performed as ‘A’ grade artist all over India. In year 2001 Nishi relocated to Mumbai where fortune smiled upon her fate as she got the blessings of the Kathak Queen Smt. Sitara Deviji. After short and intense training under Sitara Devi, Nishi completed her Kathak education with eternal gratification to all her esteemed Gurus.
Nishi taught, performed and created dance in Mumbai where she got accreditation from Gandharva Mahavidyalay. In 2011 she relocated to Oman where she continued to teach and perform Kathak.
