At the age of seven, she began formal learning of dance from her mother and learned Kalaripayattu, Kathak and Chhau dance as well as giving performances in twenty-two countries over last seven years .

According to an interview with India Daily, Isha stated she "lived a different life poles apart from the film industry. For 11 years I have been training eight to 10 hours a day in a very disciplined atmosphere where there is no distinction between boys and girls. I was not supposed to cry over a clipped nail. Beyond stage even my wardrobe has mostly unisexual dresses, jeans and T-shirts".


Isha never gave acting in Bollywood a priority, until she was spotted by Subhash Ghai who required someone with talented dancing skills to perform in his movie Kisna (2005). He offered her a main role in the film opposite Vivek Oberoi . The film did not do well but her dance performances were appreciated.
