I joined a small group session with Johanna a few times and it was one of the most positive singing experiences of my life. Johanna is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. As a novice singer, it was really awesome for me to learn more about how to use my breath and body as a tool to free my voice. Johanna is truly embodied in her work and her enthusiasm and passion are contagious. Whether you are a professional or a beginner, I can't recommend Johanna more highly.

Ana is just a really great teacher. First, she’s a really nice person. She’s also highly competent, patient, flexible, and obviously a wonderful dancer herself. She makes things fun, and yet still teaches in a classical way, which is great. Yay Ana!

Bharata Natyam is one of the classical dances from India. A rich dance with rhythmic foot work, strong and graceful movements and expressions. The class is taught by an expert Bharat Natyam dancer and teacher who comes from the Mysore Palace tradition. The form is taught with care for great detail, expression and wonderful rhythm work. The class is suitable for all age groups including the elderly. Try this art form and you will see how much beauty is there in our bodies and our expressions. This a great form for actors too.

I've been looking for a teacher like Aparna throughout my life so I'm pretty happy I finally found a good guru. I learn both dance (Bharathanatyam) and yoga from her via Skype. Her attention to detail, insight and expertise, and inspirational teaching style have re-instilled my confidence and commitment as an artist. Highly and strongly recommend!
Avani
Aparna is a wonderful teacher and I am so glad to be learning from her. I have been taking Bharatanatyam lessons from Aparna for over four years via video-call. She has a strong command of the dance form and teaches it in an accessible way. She encourages creativity alongside developing a strong base. Even via video, she can see the details of my dancing and correct me appropriately. I had taken Bharatanatyam lessons for a couple of years when young, and done various dance styles throughout my life, but wanted to get back into it as an adult. I mostly do one-on-one classes but also joined a few group classes and I see that she is a good teacher for people of all ages. I've grown so much as a dancer and am really grateful for her guidance.
Smitha
Aparna Sindhoor is a master-level Bharata Natyam dancer with a lifetime of insight and experience. Her teaching is customized, non-judgemental, and elevates your body, mind, and spirit. I started taking classes with Dr. Sindhoor six years ago after decades of Bharata Natyam learning and performance. I am continuously learning something new from her. She is flexible, understanding, and yet maintains the highest artistic standards. I strongly recommend her to any dancer looking for a dedicated, compassionate teacher in dance and life.

Tim
I think she is a great teacher. I have learned a lot in her class. She delivers the information well and is understanding of student needs. I think she makes acting an enjoyable process. There will be decent amount of work in her class but work that makes sense to shape your future in the field. I highly recommend her.
Johenfy
Professor Duarte is amazing at her craft. She has years of experience and will help you find and develop your own craft. Her courses are a must for both beginners and advanced users.
Jesse
I had Cristina for a fifteen-week-long Auditions Technique class and I learned so much from her. I'm a fairly confident actor but for most of my life I've been terrible at auditions and after taking this class I've improved tenfold. We are going through unprecedented times right now and Cristina made our class's transition from in person to online completely seamless, which I appreciate and commend her for.

"Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!"

She was brilliant. We had her do an encore performance in our festival. We had Christine teach her master class workshop on improv for humor health, as I would call it... and I am still using her techniques with my students.
