There are no words to describe the impact of having Preya Patel teach traditional Indian dance to my African-American students in Harlem, NY. The children not only grew to love the nuances of an unfamiliar culture, they grew excited to be able to demonstrate movements that had cultural and spiritual significance they had never been exposed to before.

Vivarta Arts is next to none, especially in the Queens/Long Island area. Being a dancer myself, the choreographers and staff are very friendly and teach in an efficient manner for all students. The motivation to teach is fueled through passion of the arts which creates incredible work and performances.

Vivarta Arts/ Preya Patel is doing an incredible job of spreading the rich knowledge of Kathak in the true form to the upcoming Indian Americans all over NY. Preya's hard work is both commendable and admirable and I wish her all the best.

Preya is a treasure trove of knowledge in the subject of Indian dance and music. She is a highly effective teacher and a remarkable performer. She is also very professional and easy to work with!

Ms. Preya is a very talented artist who can convey her a story through her dance, expression and pure talent! Through her teaching, my daughter has learned art of Kathak, not only in performance but all details behind it! In addition to learning this beautiful dance, given the rigor and requirements of course - she has learned how to speak for herself, learned time management and discipline of getting homework done in time! She truly is enjoying her time learning with Ms. Preya as her teacher!

Vivarta Arts is a real and authentic classical dance school. Preya is extremely committed and involved in teaching this art form to the younger generation. My 9 year old daughter learnt and advanced pretty quickly under her guidance. And she developed her love for Indian classical form through this training.

As a classical dancer myself I can attest to the fact that there are no shortcuts to learning. Preya is absolutely wonderful and so committed to this art form and sharing / teaching others.

Highly recommend.
