We congratulate Esha Bhasin the winner of the prestigious STAR PERFORMER AWARD for the Winter Session of 2015.

Esha for over 1 year at the Gurus of Dance and Drama academy. She receives this award for her outstanding performance as "Mom" in the student musical Candyland.

Esha is the new kid on the block. She has never acted before and has shown remarkable improvement with her voice and projection on stage. She has the unique ability to mold her voice based on her character and has worked diligently to achieve it. She is not only a good actor but also a graceful dancer. She performed the role of a middle aged Mother who is constantly worried about her childs future and who has a non supportive husband. She sang a song on stage with a lot of ease and flair. Her interaction with the father turned out to be the best scene in the show. Keep up the good work Esha. Your talent will pay off soon.

Gurus of Dance presents TANVI SYED the winner of the prestigious STAR PERFORMER AWARD for the Summer Session of 2015.

She has been training at Gurus - Dance and Drama academy for 2 years under the watchful eyes of our director Aditya Patel. She receives this award for her outstanding performance as "Googol" in the student musical Twice Upon a Time. 

Tanvi continues her learning using the Aditya Patel Acting methodology and along with this she has danced in over 8 local and musical shows all over the bay area from 2014 to 2015

Tanvi's training and commitment as an actor over the past 2 years has been commendable. Her acting skills were very visible on stage as she performed the difficult role of "Googol" in the student musical - Twice Upon a Time. This role required her have a nerdy demeanour with a bengali accent. She was able to adapt to it with ease even though she does not know the language. The audience did not recognise Tanvi Syed during the show. This happens only when an actor truly embodies a role and convinces the audience of the character she was playing.This is a great milestone for Tanvi. I cannot wait for her to grow up and to take bigger roles in the Solskrit professional shows.

Gurus of Dance presents AVIRAL KUKREJA the winner of the prestigious STAR PERFORMER AWARD for the Winter Session of 2014.

Aviral has been training at the Gurus - Dance and Drama academy for over 3 years under the guidance of our director Aditya Patel. He receives this award for his outstanding performance as "Captain Jack Sparrow" in the student musical Indiana Zones.

It is an art to copy a living legend like Johnny Depp. Aviral spent hours to study the role and masterfully executed the voice projection, accent, body language and the drunk character through his acting. At the end he truly deserved the standing ovation!It is a special treat to watch Aviral dancing as a character on stage. He masterfully adapts the character and excels in performance when dancing to various Bollywood tunes. Aviral is on his path to become a star and I wish him the best!!!"
