Rajendra Kumar Gangani and gained knowledge in Yoga, Tabla and Hindustani classical vocal during her dance training.

She has worked and performed as a Kathak dancer with different choreographers in India such as her mentor Pt. Rajendra Kumar Gangani for out-of-school productions, as well as other renowned artists like Saroja Vaidyanathan and Deodatt Persaud.


Ghazal performed as a solo dancer on different stages in India and Europe.

Ghazal Ramzani is the co-founder of Kalatva Collective where she is involved as a dancer, choreographer and music composer. One of her main concerns is creating chances for everyone to experience dance. Hence, she seeks to bring dance to places and people who usually don't get the privilege to experience it. As a part of Kalatva Collective as well as an independent artist and teacher, she performed and gave workshops and dance classes in public schools and community spaces of India, as well as in projects for refugee children in Germany and homes for seniors and elderly people.
