Past Interns,Visiting Faculties :

Here’s the list of past interns who did some classes and performances for us as Grace And Grooves. We thought it would be a great idea giving them credits here as their little contribution towards Grace And Grooves had opened doors to other possibilities. No effort can go to waste!

We have surprised ourselves just as the word The Impossible as I M Possible even by following the rules of Indian Dances and yet we took a step ahead than the norm and yet managed to stay in the category! That’s fun. Serving to knowledge and knowledge only helps to achieve! The magic of training can take you to the heights of enjoying the form or style with unlimited creativity without harming anybody, it is so true! Gaining knowledge through training has helped deal with pressures and proper understanding of body mechanics.

When we say intern-choreographer, it means:

  1. They were working for us either voluntarily or were the part-timers or had occasional official commitments with us as per our mutual understanding and contract.
  2. They had given us full rights for publishing their pictures, videos and all that they had submitted to us to advertise their specialty or workshops either as the independent choreographer or as our own contracted choreographer.

If the names aren’t mentioned here then it only means that

  1. they have not met our expectations to teach our students after their showcase performance (Their performance did not represent Grace And Grooves).
  2. OR they have not worked for us in past at any given point of time.
  3. OR It did not materialize to the level where they officially committed to us, by signing the contract with Grace And Grooves
  4. OR officially they did not submit their videos or pictures to us for either advertising their workshops or their specialty.

Grace And Grooves is a registered business with the State of Texas as an LLC.

Thank you to each one of you for being part of our rich history that’s always in making! shruti
