A well-known Australian performer has had a clean sweep at the Olympic Games of the performing arts world.’ Aarti Bajaj, who created last year’s Indian dance spectacular MEERA, won three silver and two bronze medals at the World Championship of Performing Arts in Los Angeles. She competed in Acting for TV, Acting for Drama, Photo Modelling, Ethnic Dance and Open Dance.

The event, which ran from July 12 to 21, saw thousands of performers from around the world competing. Ms Bajaj wrote and launched stage show MEERA at Home of the Arts on the Gold Coast last year, and has since travelled to New Zealand to see it performed in Auckland. The mother-of-two and sonographer said she was “feeling amazing” after having just touched down on Australian soil. “It’s amazing to see Indian arts on the world championship platform, representing Australia,” she said. “ I’m feeling great to be an Australian and be able to do us proud. It isn’t easy to juggle my medical, artistic, creative, entrepreneurial and mummy life together but most days I win, and it’s all because of my amazing Wild Dreamer Productions team and continuous support I get from my super supportive husband and loving kids.”

She will now have the chance to compete again next year, hoping to bring home a gold medal.
