“Our kids have gone to the Navatman summer camp for 2 years now. We sent them to the summer camp the first year to get them familiar with Indian classical music and dance. The experience was so good that we ended up signing them for classes for the whole year and are now a part of the Navatman community….The summer camp helped develop the love for music and dance in our kids in a very short time and also during the second summer camp the growth for our son in music was phenomenal. We would highly recommend the summer camp for anyone looking to develop an initial interest or accelerate their learning.”
- Gautam and Priya, members of the Navatman fam
"Navatman is important to me because I have been here for as long as I can remember and I cannot imagine my life without it. I enjoy every class here and I love that I am always in an open learning environment. I don’t think I would love dance and music as much as I do if I learned anywhere else. The teachers and students I train with are the sweetest people ever. And I love the community dynamics we have here. Love you all."
- Suhani, student
"I love Navatman because I go there a lot and if I am having problems they are going to help me, no matter what. Even if I get in trouble, they are still there for me... I came to Navatman when I was 4. I really like dancing. And I really wouldn’t be at Navatman still, if the people here weren’t super amazing and fun."
- Navya, student
"Navatman is like a second home to me. The teachers are very nice and show that they care by pushing you to become a better dancer/singer and person. Navatman is a safe place where I can be me and not what people expect me to be. I also love that there are always new opportunities and lessons. It takes my mind away from anything stressful and just allowed me to have fun. I love Navatman and always will."
- Saara, student
"I love Navatman because it feels like a community and family. The teachers are really kind and help me do my best as a dancer and person."
