Sofia Rodriguez, 


If you are looking to broaden your mind and expand your horizons by learning about Indian Classical dance in a fun and fulfilling environment, look no more. The predominant style at Noor Academy is Bharathanatyam but don't be discouraged if you have never... heard what this style is; once you meet Shachi you'll feel at ease. 

She is a patient, knowledgeable teacher who focuses not only on form and technique but also on learning what works for each individual student and making sure you reach your full potential as a dancer & performer. It is this mix of warmth, wellness and plenty of answers to all of your questions that keeps her students coming back each term!

Shachi is a wonderful, kind, and patient dance teacher. She knows how to nurture and motivate her students. Her passion for dance and storytelling is infectious and over the years, my daughter has learned so much about dance, rhythm, and expression. Thank you Shachi for being an amazing teacher!
