She had her early training in Lucknow school of Kathak under Smt. Reba Vidyarathi at Kathak Kendra, New Delhi. Her quest of enriching her art with the technique of the Jaipur School led her to the leading light of Jaipur Gharana Pt. Durga Lalji. 

The vigorous training under the exacting eye of her celebrated Guru molded her into an artist of rare individuality and exquisite taste. Through the very nature of her training, Uma combines in her art the delicacies and daintiness of the Lucknow as well as the vigor of alacrity of Jaipur Gharanas.
