Praise from our Program Alumni

“[Programs like #MonsterMasterclass] are extremely important. Dancers, musicians, and artists in general forget that you are your own business. You are your admin, your social media manager, your content creator, etc. Sometimes we need somebody outside of us to remind us of things we need to focus on.”

– Indiana Mehta, Dancer (BollyHeelsTO)

“In my experience as a dance and theatre artist, I always find I am the only (or one of a very few) South Asian artists in the room. This has been a wonderful eye-opening experience to be in a room with majority South Asian and racialized artists. I’m inspired to learn more about the artists I met today, and also to learn more about my cultural lineage and how I can incorporate more of those ideas in my own artistic practice.”

– Rohan Dhupar, Dancer (Frog in Hand)
