As such his repertoire reflects a beautiful and harmonious blend of both these styles. He has received much critical acclaim for his spellbinding footwork and fast pirouettes.

He has been invited by many cultural institutions to choreograph productions. Recently he choreographed Yog Yatra Ballet based on Kathak & Yoga which was presented at Pathanjali Yog Peeth, Haridwar.
