Kapoor originally was an athlete, but because of some causes after she met Richard Tholoor she decided to become a dancer instead, joining Lourd Vijay’s dance studio in Bangalore. During her tenure at the school, Kapoor and her dance partner Tholoor won several awards and trophies in salsa championships across the world. Kapoor broke a Guinness World Record for “Most Number of Swing Dance Flips in a Minute”. The record of 33 flips in a minute was set four years ago in the UK, but Kapoor and her team of three dancers set the new record at 39 flips.

She participated in Dance India Dance Season 3 and did extremely well but was eliminated on 22 January 2012.

Kapoor has choreographed for the reality shows Just Dance and Perfect Bride. She also choreographed the South Indian movie, Jugaari and Madhur Bhandarkar‘s film, Heroine. She performs and teaches dance workshops nationally and internationally.
