Being half Indian, Prosenjit always wanted to delve deeper into his roots, and move to his father’s homeland of India, with a vision to contribute socially through his love for dance. In December 2005, Prosenjit moved to India and was the very first person to introduce and teach styles like House, Hip Hop, Breaking, Popping and Locking into the dance culture. He is accredited by the countries pioneering dancers in the above styles as being instrumental in kick starting what can now only be called a street dance phenomenon spreading in India. Prosenjit spent unpaid hours teaching and creating awareness about these forms in both cities and remote areas and continue to still do so today. He even initialized the unfamiliar idea of a crew and dedicated his time to consistently create an underground dance scene even starting his own crew “KUNDU HOUSE PROJECT”
Having danced professionally since 1998, Prosenjit Guy Kundu has been actively involved in the Underground Dance Scene for over 2 decades. Born in France, Prosenjit, who is of Bengali-Indian and French descent discovered the art of hip hop dancing in 1990, at the mere age of 15. Two years later at 17, he stumbled upon a D.C. house club by the name of Trax and fell in love with the energy and flow of house dance. On turning 18, he attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where he acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance and Choreography. By day, he formally trained in the dance forms of Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap and African at VCU and by night was pursuing dance styles such as Breakdancing, House, Hip Hop, Popping and Locking at underground clubs. After his schooling, he moved to New York City to fuel his fervor for dance and mold his visions. Prosenjit began teaching at studios throughout Manhattan while simultaneously working as a professional dancer.
