Urvi Pathak -Founder / Director of Satvikam Shivam
"After moving to USA, I started a dance group and then soon founded Satvikam Shviam School of Indian Cultural Heritage to provide an education in Indian classical dances in 2002 with a vision to ‘Preserve’, ‘Promote’ and ‘Pass on’ Indian dances and cultural heritage in original format and divine charm.
Passion for dance
Dance is absolute passion of my life. Dance, for me is pure joy, at different levels - from the sublimely spiritual to the vibrantly physical, from the purely intellectual to the intensely emotional. At its most intense level, it is a joyous prayer and an appeal to unite with the ultimate.
Art is the essence of my existence. Dance makes me lighter lifts me up.
नर्तनम् ताप कर्तनम्। The art of dance removes all troubles.
