Haleem Khan is an Indian Kuchipudi dancer, performer and movie actor from Hyderabad. Haleem has performed more than 800 dance shows across the world, as well conducted Kuchipudi workshops overseas.
Right from his childhood days, classical dance form of Kuchipudi fascinated him and movies were his primary source of inspiration. Long before he fully comprehended the obstacles that had to be faced, he had set his goals to pursue learning Kuchipudi. He was blessed to find his guru, Shri Kaza Venkata Subramanyam garu, who spotted divine grace in him and gave guidance to his passion.
Hailing from a Muslim family in a small town, Haleem had faced many difficulties in learning Kuchipudi without his family knowing of it. Initially Haleem had performed under the stage name of Hari. His dance, especially his specialty of female impersonation, has given him a critical acclaim and won him many awards. Haleem is very passionate about preserving the art and is working on an interactive Kuchipudi dance instruction video. He has also acted in Telugu movies since 2011.
We are very excited to have him here in Seattle for some very exciting Bollywood & Semi Classical workshops on June 19th!
