Student's Testimonials

” Shraddha Joglekar is an amazing teacher who takes pride in seeing her students excel.  Her recent show of ShivoHam was an awesome program. Her 5th Anniversary, Grand Samakirtan/Celebration, show was the first one I attended. I was totally fascinated by all of the dancers, including Shraddha.  She has helped me become a better dancer.  She never ceases to amaze me with her passion for the art of Bharatanatyam. I am very happy she is my guru. “

” My 6 YO daughter has been learning Bharatnatyam at KalaAwishkar academy for 1.5 years now.  My daughter loves learning the dance from Shraddha and looks forward to her class. The dance academy offers ‘make-up’ class as well every Friday, which is very convenient if for some reason one ought to miss their scheduled class on Sunday. To sum it up – my daughter and I are going to be associated for long term with Shraddha and the dance academy!!! “

” I was one of Shraddha didi’s first students when she started to teach here in the bay area. Almost 10 years later I am still with KalaAwishkar and it is very clear why. Shraddha didi’s passion and dedication to this dance form is very inspiring, and her positive attitude and upbeat personality makes it so enjoyable to learn from her. Although I have learned Bharatanatyam for several years and successfully completed my Arangetram,  “
