Sunny Anand has been involved with dance and performing arts from the age of 12, when he began as a dancer and an instructor with Shiamak Davar Institute of Performing Arts, and where he also handled additional responsibilities for the company. During his tenure at SDIPA, he travelled extensively across India and internationally as a performing artist, a film artist, a senior instructor and as a part of the back-end operations team for multiple cities in India.
After a serious injury led to him taking a step back from dance, Sunny switched careers and joined the Italian fashion brand ‘’DIESEL’’ (set up in a joint venture with Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Brands Ltd). After Diesel, he was offered the challenging role of ‘’Operations - Exclusive Brand Outlets & Advertising’’ at the Indian fashion brand MUFTI. Sunny spent the next 10 years working with the brand and during his tenure there, Mufti expanded to 300 exclusive brand outlets, 1200 multi brand outlets and its own e-commerce platform with a turnover of 650 crores on MRP.
But once a performing artist – always a performing artist! From his first exposure to dance in childhood, Sunny had always had a vision of building a dance school in the country that could offer every one the opportunity and the right tools that would help every dancer have a stable career within the country and abroad. And so when he met Ashley Lobo, it felt like it was meant to be. Ashley’s vision of helping people build themselves and their dance was a perfect match for Sunny’s dream, and so in July 2019 he joined the TDX family as President.
