Parent Testimonials


Debjani Dutta Rakshit -- Shweta is an extremely graceful, loving and encouraging teacher. She has created a wonderful environment to develop the love for dance. Sneha eagerly looks forward to her classes on Sundays and is overjoyed when she gets to spend even more time with her teacher and the Nrityaki team. Thank you Shweta for giving my little one chance to flourish on stage and also for finding the right opportunities to perform at prominent venues like the Pentagon and the White House for all your students. In less than a year that we have moved to the Northern Virginia area, not only has my daughter Sneha developed a very strong bond with her, I have also won a good friend . Glad to be part of the Nrityaki family.


Kanika Govil -- My Daughter has been learning Kathak from her teacher Shweta Misra for the past 4 years. She is very fortunate to have such a wonderful guru. Shweta takes a lot of interest in her kids and pays attention to details and develops her students to become beautiful dancers of tomorrow. I am happy that Shweta is able to teach my daughter classical Kathak dance and keep her closer to her roots. My daughter has had the opportunity to perform in many prestigious performances in Virginia and DC. Thank you Shweta..


Monica Kumar -- I have known Shweta for more than 12 years now. She is an amazing friend/teacher...beautiful, graceful and elegant, which reflects through her dances which her students perform. My daughters have been learning Kathak from her and performed in various events and won prizes. Can't thank enough for your patience and commitment. :-)


Geeta Goindi -- Nrityaki Dance Academy, founded and directed by Shweta Misra, is making waves throughout the Washington area. Its students with their graceful movements, agility and resplendent costumes are regaling audiences at manifold community events. It goes to Shweta's credit for choreographing such enthralling dances, contributing immensely to keeping the rich tradition of Kathak flourishing here in the west, and encouraging her students to highlight their talents on various platforms thereby building self-confidence! Hope to see many more performances by Nrityaki ... You go, girls !!!
