Hey Kanan,
Just wanted to thank you for the hard work u put in for teaching Pratha...  love her effort but have to admit that she has my grace in dancing...🤪.   Your calm guidance has brought out confidence in her.  And has helped her with her stage fright and developing her talent.  I know a lot of teachers that would not have helped her come this far and my appreciation and admiration of you is much more than words can express. 🤗virtual hug! N tears... Real ones... of joy.  Hail Kanan... 🙇🏻‍♀️... each and every compliment is heart felt for you. Keep on rocking!

Hi Kanan, I was so happy to see all the little ones on stage for their performance. I thought my daughter Myra will not even go on stage because she feels so shy in front of everyone. But you put so much efforts. Kids are really excited for their next term after this amazing experience. Thank you

Thank you Kanan for all the arrangements today. It was really nice to see our kid’s performance. On a personal note, I can find my girl’s confidence level is going up which I am so happy to see. She loves learning dance and want to improve every time. She always asks me true opinion about her performance. I noticed this time she put in more energy and confidence than previous performances. Thanks, Kanan for being a lovely teacher, helping them to improve not only in dance but also in other areas. Thank you for all the support, teaching etc. It was well organized programme. You really deserve a lot of appreciation. Love from all of us.

Kanan is a role model is so many ways. Firstly, she has an amazing work ethic. She gives up her weekends every week to help her students. She is so positive and energetic – people feel inspired by being around her and being taught by her. She has incredible patience and perseverance – some of her students require more help in learning and she is always able to help them develop and become more confident. I believe what makes her so special and inspirational is how she always wants to help others.

The impact of the work she does is amazing and far reaching. It’s not only her students and parents who are positively influenced but thousands of people within the community. By performing and supporting many events Kanan has brought joy, hope, belief and inspiration to so many people through the art of dancing.

My daughter has been attending Kanan’s classes for 4 years now and her role model is Kanan. She has taught her so many important values such as respect, patience, helping others and working hard. I believe all her students are inspired by her.

Kanan does what she does because she loves helping others and adding value to people’s lives. She doesn’t want or expect anything in return. She does it because is so passionate about the art of dancing and the amazing influence it can have on people’s lives. I have attended many of community events and the audience are always are so happy and engaged. I watch some of the videos back and think WOW – look how many people have been influenced and inspired by these performances. As a parent I am so proud of what my daughter has achieved through dancing and how she has been able to touch people lives through dancing. All of this is made possible by Kanan’s contribution to helping the community.

Highly dedicated, talented and the most committed teacher I have ever seen.
Dr. Kanan Shah, is highly organised and looks after her students well.


When you have so many performances in any given year, tells a lot about Dr. Kanan Shah and her team. My daughter started Bharatnatyam with NIPA last year and she enjoys so much that now she has also enrolled for Bollywood dance lessons. Kids can tell how much they enjoy!!
Best Indian dance class in Sydney...look no further.

Kanan and her NIPA team dances at our Bollywood event and make it really rock! The colour the choreography and the music were matched only by the skill of the team. Kanan was professional to deal with, and led the entire party into a fantastic audience participation dance class and made the event memorable.
We would love to have her back at our next event
