Hear from all those who have experienced the joy of dancing at Deepam
Intermediate Student at Deepam
I was much younger when my parents and I watched Tamoghna Dey, one of Deepam’s best dancer perform at an event. I was so inspired by her and that led me to Deepam and my Guru Deepak Roy. As years passed I really enjoyed going to dance class and slowly started loving it. Last year Guru Deepak Roy left for India and so one of his first student, our teacher now, Aishwarya didi teaches us odissi with a lot of love and enthusiasm. It is fun and refreshing going to dance class. Now it has been 8 years that I have been learning odissi at Deepam and I look forward to learn a lot more here!
Hailing from the south of India,we were not much aware of the classical art form Odissi though we had just studied about it in school.
We happened to see the Odissi performance of one of the student’s @ Deepam and that’s when we realised how beautiful this art form is. With it’s delicate and graceful moves, not to miss the striking postures and torso movements. Our 5 yr old daughter Ameya began her dance journey with Aiswarya mam at Deepam Dance Academy. She is a very humble and friendly teacher and this attitude of hers has made the children feel at home. Proud to have a talented teacher like her.
I joined Deepam in 2010, my inclination towards dance got me here. I loved Odissi since the day I saw it. Deepam has been like a family to me.
Dance classes were extremely fun with Deepak sir. He was open minded in his approach and almost like a friend to us. After sir left, Aishwarya continued to conduct the classes and the same spirit of Deepam remained. Aishwarya follows a rigorous workout sessions but the classes are just as interesting and challenging as they were with Sir. The whole environment of Deepam is extremely positive and joyous. Along with Odissi, Yogas and dance exercises have enhanced or learning process. Everyday we learn something new and Deepam is now a part of my life.
