Kudrat Gill: A Lively Dancer and a Ravishing Model!
Kudrat Gill is an Indian born Australian, a self confessed career-oriented girl who loves food, outdoors, animals, different cultures, travelling and her family and friends.
Kudrat states, “dance is my 'expression' . Expression is a way of making known one's thoughts or feelings and I turn to dance and music no matter what my thoughts or feelings. I can easily express it through dance. Dancing has been a passion as far back as my memory goes. It has been something that continues to grow with me. I have learnt and performed a variety of genres of dance - Broadway, Salsa, various folk and classical dances of India. In Australia I started with a group of friends with whom I performed various bollywood numbers and mix of other styles. Following my performance with the Shiamak Davar (international) Dance Company at the Commonwealth Games I went on to join their school and undertook technical training with them.
After a few years I started Bhangra, originally a males folk dance. I have trained locally with a mixed team and competed alongside the team in National Bhangra competitions, successfully placing. In the past year I have become more involved with the community to support bhangra and other local talents. I hope to help the beautiful and vibrant Indian culture spread across to other communities so we can continue to enjoy it together”.
Recently, Kudrat started modeling and has trained with Tanya Powell agency. She has since worked on a few local projects. Kudrat participated in the Miss India Global 2016 pageant and had a great learning experience at a personal and professional level.
Kudrat recollects her experience of being a part of Miss India Global, “I was humbled to take home the Miss Natural Beauty title, sponsored by Blossom Kocchar. Also got to know some fantastic people and found mentors in other lovely women such as Jessica Peart (Miss Global 2015), Debashree Das (Mrs Singapore), and Jazz Gill (HMUA), supporting the cause of 'Empowering Women'. Life has opened another new path since and I look forward to working on the new challenges and opportunities that present themselves. I look forward to the Australian fashion and modelling industry diversifying and truly representing our multicultural nation with representation from all the different communities.”
