Terence Lewis is one of the most popular choreographers in India. He was born on 10th April 1975 and did his schooling in St. Theresa School which is located in Bandra, Mumbai. From a young age, Terence was interested in dance and the first incident that made him realize his passion was during school when his first dance teacher asked him whether he would like to participate in a dance show. His schooling gave him the initial training in the dance forms of Ballet and Jazz. However, the training was limited as his family, being financially unstable, did not support his dancing because of which Terence had to learn dances such as Kathak in secret. He is the choreographer of many Bollywood dance routines, music videos, international musical shows and various TV shows. He is also the first Indian recipient of the Dance WEB scholarship of Vienna, Austria.
He received training in contemporary dance at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance in New York.
Terence had an unsuccessful venture when he opened his first dance institute after which he became a fitness instructor who was popular among many celebrities including Sushmita Sen, Gauri Khan, Madhuri Dixit etc. His breakthrough came after he choreographed for the film Lagan.
