What Our Students Have to Say

I have been taking dance lessons from Mrs. Lavanyaa Surendar for three years now. She makes all the lessons very straightforward and easy to learn. I like how there is an audio recording so that we can practice at home. She is very kind, but strict at the same time. I always look forward to going to class and learning something new every week. Out of all the dance schools I have been to, Mrs. Lawnya’s Bharatnatym Aum House of Arts is the best dance school. I would unquestionably recommend it to other people. - Riya Butala, 8th grade, Appleton WI

My kids Aanya and Kaashvi started their Bharatnatyam journey with Lavanya in 2016. It was one of the best decision I took for them. She introduced them to a beautiful world of dance. She gave them experiences that will last a lifetime and lessons that will last for many more. Most importantly, Lavanyaa hasimparted in my children a genuine love, pride and respect for this dance form. Thank you so much Lavanya for your dedication and commitment. Gunjan Kasera

You have been a great teacher for me over the last few years. Initially I had a lot of fears about making mistakes and not being able to understand few of the moves. You had been very patient and kind in explaining things in a detailed yet simple way. You have also taught me discipline and good manners. I have learnt about slokas, songs which also talk about our religion and spirituality. You have also helped fine tune my voice for singing and have made me feel confident to sing out loud and clear. Thank you for inspiring me and several other students like me. I really feel lucky and blessed to have been a student of yours. Hoping to scale higher heights and achieve greater things in dance and music under your guidance and by God's grace in the future.
