We have been driving from San Diego to Walnut every week for the past 6-7 years so that my daughter can learn Kathak from Bhairaviji, and it is worth every moment of it. She is an amazing kathak teacher, very caring and very thorough. She is a fantastic human being and if I were to do this all over, I sure would. I recommend her to anyone wanting to learn this wonderful art form with reverance, respect and details.— Vaishali Patel ... [ Parent ]
We have been going to nrityodaya Kathak for almost a year now. Ms. Bhairavi is the best guru anyone can get. She is thoroughly professional, really patient with the little kids and has a true love and passion for Kathak. My daughter is really motivated and practices even without me asking her to. I have to thank Ms. Bhairavi for making my daughter love Kathak and she truly enjoys it. I would recommend for anyone who is looking Kathak to start here, you will not regret.— Athika K ...

My daughter has been learning from Bhairaviji for the past 10 years and she has loved every moment of it. Bhairaviji is an amazing dancer and even more amazing and dedicated teacher. She tries to help every single student achieve their true potential, and passes on her passion for dance in her teaching.— Sunetra Sabnis ... [ Parent ]
We recommend this teacher for anyone who wants to learn Kathak.
I have had the blessing to be apart of this academy for about 7 years and can say with confidence that my passion for Kathak keeps on growing. The combination of grace, vigorous technicality, creativity, and passion that is obvious in the way Bhairaviji and her Senior Troupe dance is infectious. She is caring, patient, and equally honest with all her students. She pushes us hard without ever making it feel like the improvement she expects from us is impossible or overwhelming. There is a great balance in her style of teaching between focus on the teachnical and expressive aspects of Kathak. The biannual productions are a true blast and motivation for every student. I'm amazed by her extensive knowledge in the art's technique, repertoire and history.— Kesar P ... [ Student ]
Bhairavi Auntie is the best teacher one could get. I have been learning Kathak since a very long time and with Bhairavi Auntie since 2 years now. She is so detailed oriented, so dedicated and an amazing human being. I could not have asked for a better teacher who molds me in a perfect manner. Nrityodaya Kathak Academy is the best thing that has happened to me after migrating into a new country. Becoming her disciple and taking forward her legacy is a dream for me. Nrityodaya Kathak Academy is a RECOMMENDED academy for whoever interested in learning Kathak.— Mansi Shah ... [ Student ]
Bhairavi Auntie and Shikha's amazing teaching techniques will make you fall in LOVE WITH THIS DANCE FORM.
I am so incredibly blessed to be apart of such a beautiful Kathak Academy. Bhairavi Auntie is the epitome of a Guru; she truly is a spiritual teacher who teaches you so much more than how to dance. She has guided me through the past 8 years of my life and has taught me so many things about myself and about life in general. The Nrityodaya Kathak Academy isn't just a place to dance, but rather a place to discover yourself and to learn how to become the best possible version of you. She will teach you grace, poise, and how to become a respectable young lady as you discover how to express yourself through this beautiful form of dance. I will never leave my Guru and Kathak will forever have a special place in my heart.— Sarina P ... [ Student ]
My 7-year daughter recently started taking Kathak with Bhairavi-Auntie at Nrityodaya Kathak Academy and she has fallen in love with this dance form. Originally, my daughter was looking for Bollywood and Hip-hop, but I wanted something more graceful and classic to ensure she learns the foundation of dancing. My daughter and I both agree, that this is truly where she was meant to be. Auntie has been teaching the girls with the right amount of discipline and a whole lot of care and love. I really don't know how Bhairavi Auntie has the patience to teach this formal dance to 7-years but I'm grateful that she is.— Vayshali B ... [ Parent ]
We love it here and hope our daughter has a long journey with the academy.
My daughter has been learning Kathak from Bhairavi Ji for around 6 months now and we are truly blessed to have found such an amazing teacher/guru/mentor. My daughter looks forward to class every week and is dedicated and strives to become a better dancer.— Seema K ... [ Parent ]
We are so happy and fortunate to get a dedicated and sweet teacher and dance studio. Bhairavi Ji treats all the girls with so much kindness and motivation. We have seen such a huge improvement in my daughters technique and skill. We love the testing of theory as well and the professionalism of the school. We are just so honored and happy to be a part of such an amazing academy!!
My daughter, Arushi and I couldn't have been more fortunate to have Bhairaviji as our guru. She goes beyond just teaching us the dance form - she teaches us to love, and revere the art and be gracious students. She teaches us to value the opportunity we have to carry on the rich cultural heritage and tradition we have inherited. She is warm and teaches with a passion. It's a labor of love for her. She spend countless hours of her personal time and dime to groom my daughter for her OSCA application. We are forever grateful to her for her unconditional support. Her senior students and staff have totally imbibed her style of teaching and share her commitment to the art of kathak.— Renu C ... [ Parent ]
I recommend the school and Bhairaviji unreservedly!
