TESTIMONIALS

by renowned Classical artists
It is always a pleasure to come to dance for Dharani. What one appreciate is the interest in the arts that Shyamala has generated in her senior students. I wish for her many years of teaching, performing and sustaining the art of Bharatanatyam in Kerala. I wish her continuous success in all her endeavours and my best wishes for her and her extended family of Dharani .
