Arunima Gupta | Wollongong Diagnostics

Aru is a consultant Radiologist and the Managing Director of Wollongong Diagnostics Imaging Group. It’s not the career she thought she’d fall into but now her life is a bit like the Quick Step dance – fast, powerful with not much down time! Aru loves that her career is making a difference in the fight against cancer through her profession and being a part of the awesome team of doctors who are working on prevention ,diagnosis and cure of cancer "24 x7'. So "YAY" to the warriors in medical fraternity ,patients and their families. Her favourite dancing music is ABBA’s Dancing Queen, along with Bollywood ,Indian classical and of course  "Bhangra". If it wasn’t for her buzzing career, tennis and family , Aru likens herself to a typical lazy cat. Can she strike a happy medium in her dance style and pretend that it’s her dream partner Patrick Swayze that she’s gliding around the dancefloor with?Is this evening going to be" the time of her life and never felt this way before for her"? .so come dance with her !!!

Vidiya Ramachandran

 is the co-founder of Nachle Dance School and the school's Wollongong Branch Director. Vidiya received a Master of Science (Biotechnology) and a PhD from the University of Wollongong.

A scientist by profession at NSW Health Pathology, Vidiya's passion has been dancing, and she loves performing and teaching this art form. Her dance training began at the young age of 4, learning the classical Indian dance—Bharathanatyam, under guru Mrs Shivananthy Haridharshan. With her commitment to passing on her knowledge, skills, and cultural heritage, she began dance classes for the Wollongong Indian community, which paved the way to launch Nachle Dance School in 2012.

As a choreographer, Vidiya combines her vast experience in classical dance with Indian folk dance styles, jazz, hip hop, and middle eastern dance forms. Under her guidance, Nachle Dance School students continue to deliver high-quality performances in various stage shows in Wollongong and Greater Sydney.

Power of connection

*A beautiful poem by Lee Tzu Pheng* (Singapore Cultural Medallion winner) 
 When I'm dead. Your tears will flow But I won't know Cry with me now instead.
 You will send flowers, But I won't see Send them now instead 
 You'll say words of praise But I won't hear. Praise me now instead
 You'll forget my faults, But I won't know..... Forget them now instead. 
 You'll miss me then, But I won't feel. 
Miss me now, instead.
 You'll wish You could have spent more time with me, Spend it now instead 
 When you hear I'm gone, you'll find your way to my house to pay condolence but we haven't even spoken in years. Look for me now. 

 "Spend time with every person around you, and help them with whatever you have to make them happy, your families, friends and acquaintances. 
 Make them feel Special because you never know when time will take them away from you forever. Alone I can 'Say' but together we can 'Talk'. Alone I can 'Enjoy' but together we can 'Celebrate' Alone I can 'Smile' but together we can 'Laugh' *That's the BEAUTY of Human Relations*. *We are nothing without each other So Stay Connected!!*
