We attended your recital-Dance of Gods:Adi-Shakti(2016). It was very beautiful, graceful and well-coordinated. Your indian folk dances, bharatnatyam and bollywood were all amazing. The devotional musicals were very creative yet realistic. Costumes were just beautiful and I loved the fashion show. I was amazed to see students of your teams dancing so beautifully, esp the younger kids. Older kids were absolutely amazing. Very well organized and beautifully done inspite of time constraints. We can't wait for your new enrollments to open and join!

Not upset to leave Dallas but very sad to leave classes. Your choreography got us first prize in community competition again this time. But that is not why I am leaving you a recommendation. Today my daughter was asked by her teachers to apply for advance grade courses in her school. While filling forms first thing that my daughter told me that she wants to make you proud! She is the same girl who used to struggle w/grades 3 years ago, had inferiority complex & stage was the last thing she wanted to step on. Having tried several choreographers in name of folk, bollywood & classical dances, we had almost given up when my daughter refused to dance. Being a classical dancer myself for over 9 years in India, I wanted my girls to learn at least some form of dance if not classical. With Ms. Joshi, my daughters would look forward to indian folk dance lessons. We were surprised and happy. What I liked most is the originality in her choreography. Any true dance form always has 3 elements. It is Natya, Nritya & Nritta (Drama, Steps & Expressions). One of these elements cannot complete a successful choreography. Specially for classical & folk dance forms. A dance choreography is born when everything is put together appropriately to best fit the subject. And I love how she is able to put techniques, expressions & dramatic effects in her dances. 3 years of group as well as private combination classes & I have got back the girls I always wanted. From their graceful behavior, education & dance skills;my both the daughters are ahead of everyone in their age group. I strongly recommend lessons from Ms. Joshi to anyone who is looking for dance as fun activity or for competitions. When you take lessons from her, just give your child to her and you will see how your child will thrive over the time not only in the field of performing arts but in every aspect of life. We were in Dallas for 13 years and now we are in a different country(not India). But, the only thing my kids are upset about is leaving dance classes & their school. Ms. Joshi has gifted them the most valuable gifts that not many dance teachers give. That being said, we miss her presence. I also happen to see our social media page and website today and it is very beautiful. Everyone has done a great job. - Neha S, Irving-Texas (Private & Group Lessons-Age Group: 7-9, 9-13)

Grace and Grooves is an awesome dance school. Their folk, semi classical, and fusion choreography is beautiful and artistic. My daughter has learned so much over the last year. She has had the opportunity to perform many times and participate in competitions. During her time with G & G my daughter has really grown as a performer. It is wonderful to see her participate in a very graceful form of our Indian culture. --- Copied From our Facebook Review, by Ashna's Mom - Lewisville. (Age Group : 9 to 13, 13 to 18).

I had my daughter enrolled with this dance company and it has made a big difference in her confidence.. Now I see her spontaneously breaking into a dance whenever she hears some music no matter where she is! She enjoyed her classes and was disappointed when we had to stop them temporarily. The classes were so much fun and the instructor was able to spark the kids interest throughout the time spent dancing. I really liked the costumes used for stage performances..they looked fabulous in their sparkly outfits! Ms. Joshi is very organized and the classes are offered at reasonable cost. I will recommend this company to anyone wanting to learn various dance forms or just looking to expand your child's self-confidence and personality. - Group Lessons-Lewisville

A childhood friend, a mentor and a fabulous personality. I know her ever-since our first steps of dance lessons, that we took together at Darpana, Ms.Minadben Oza, and many other dance schools. She has been our family friend and later, our dance teacher for all our family functions, private group parties as well as my kids school performances, even before she was professionally teaching it. I am amazed to see how her love and passion for dance & music have taken her to a whole new level of choreography and now a dance company. Her choices of dress,makeup and choreography is very rich and unique. My relatives, family friends have absolutely loved the way she has organized our lessons with busy schedules and yet made it easy to learn. My family will recommend her lessons to anyone, who is interested in learning dance professionally or just for family functions. And when it comes to Ms. Joshi's lessons, you are never too late to LEARN dance or perform. My family wishes her a very good luck for her future endeavors and challenges. We will continue to take lessons and ideas of intricate choreography from her. My kids are already excited about our next upcoming performance that we have planned to do with Ms.Joshi through Skype.

Grace and Grooves participated in an event that Catholic Charities held for an international audience. The two girls arrived with their instructor and were dressed in beautiful, colorful costumes. One girl’s performance led our program and after a quick costume change she returned with a partner to perform as a duo. They were well rehearsed and well received by the audience. When the opportunity comes again to create an entertainment program I will not hesitate to ask them back. Thank you Grace and Grooves, Mark Hughes

It is our second time we have seen this group perform & this time we saw them perform for India. We have seen several dance schools perform for India and Nepal but this is the first time I am leaving a recommendation for any dance school ! Some kids who performed yesterday were as young as 4 years old & 8 year old solo was mind blowing. Their costumes were so beautiful. The group dances were very well coordinated and we were amazed to hear from their parents that it was their very first performance. Bollywood dance was unlike any other! India is very beautiful country and you have represented very well. Ms. Joshi, it was very nice meeting you yesterday. Please add me to your face-book profile page. We love watching you group perform.

I just wanted to thank you for your presentations at recent Mensa AG. I could only manage to attend the classical dance sessions but I found it extremely interesting. I have better understanding now of Indian Dances. Itis so beautiful! I am starting to watch classical dance now on the Internet. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and talent.
