"Thank you Karmagraphy for your mind-blowing performances at our event last month! You guys were the life of the party and everyone told us they loooooved ALL of the acts (from the fire dancer, aerialists, to the Bollywood fusion dances). Perfect choreography, amazing costumes, and professional management! It was such a comfortable and fun experience working with you guys. Hope to see Karmagraphy at The Bellevue in Virginia again, soon!"
-Fara and Ken from The Bellevue


"I can not describe how you have touched our hearts with your dances as it brought us great joy watching your most talented group. Your dance group is truly a combination of great artists with all modesty in presenting the right way which was acceptable to all ages that were present at our party.
Our party was a great success due to you both with your great partners. We wish to have you at our parties in the years to come! I have seen some shows before but surely you are the best!!!"

Kavita choreographed two dances for my daughters sangeet in December.  She did a fantastic job. From the first time we met to our continued correspondence via emails and texts Kavita was always prompt and delivered a two beautiful dance sequences which were a huge success. Her company Karmagraphy does very well and that is no surprise as she has extensive training in the classical dance styles. She blends her training with modern dance in  elegant and most appealing sequences.
I would highly recommend Kavita to either choreograph dances for your event or to perform with her troupe.  She is talented and very easy to work with.
Wishing you every success in your future Kavita!​

"Karmagraphy, is one of the hottest Bollywood companies in Los Angeles and they are transforming the Indian craze into the next big thing. Foundee Kavita Rao combines Western styles of dance with the famous Bollywood trend and produce high adrenaline performances. Now Karmagraphy has elevated to a full blown company."

Aliya Perry, Industry Voice News

 

"What I love about America is that there is always live entertainment. On my first night in Los Angeles, I watched a dance show celebrating the city's cultural diversity called Karmagraphy. The dance fuses traditional Bollywood-style moves with contemporary Western techniques, a creative statement of East meets West."

Low Leng May, Brunei Times

 

"The audience was treated to a range of entertainment which included high

energy dance performances by Karmagraphy"

Amelia Matthews, PZ10

"Several groups and organizations came together to make the event a success. Karmagraphy volunteered their time (for Sahara) and took turns on the stage to teach the participants a series of dance moves"

“.. theatergoers in search of “un spectacle hors de l'ordinaire” (i.e. a show that’s decidedly out of the ordinary) need no longer go beyond our city limits to find one. Imaginative choreographers (Desiree Castro, David Estrada, Kavita Rao, Yusuf Nasir, Roulin, and Sunny Soriano) receive credit for Beyond’s many impressive dance sequences.”

Karmagraphy outperformed my expectations!! WOW - beautiful, stunning dancers and choreography. Have no words to describe it.

Bela Patel, Client

 

"We recently hired Karmagraphy to perform at our wedding and they were simply amazing. We were searching extensively to find the perfect entertainment and initially could not find any one that really excited us and understood what we wanted until we were introduced to Sapna. She and her whole dance troupe were phenomenal and really listened to what we wanted. They performed 4 times in 3 days and every performance was unique and really fit the theme well. Our guests were blown away by their performances and they were one of the highlights of our wedding. They are the ideal entertainment and performance group for any function. Thank you Sapna and the entire team for making our wedding one that we will never forget."

Giresh M.

"WOW! WOW! WOW!  All I can say is WOW!!!!

They EXCEEDED all my expectations! They were AWESOME and the complete reason that our event was a smashing success!!!

PLUS – they were the nicest people ever – soooo sweet, kind and lovely to work with!

Seriously, I cannot come up with enough adjectives to describe them. 1000% worth every penny!  If you ever need a reference for them, call me!"

Donna Corporate Event Planner

Your dancers were amazing. Thank you for making the evening even more special. Your professionalism and attention to detail was so appreciated. 
Juhi S, Client

Karmagraphy was wonderful! Their dance performance was non-stop for 30 minutes and it appealed to our extremely diverse audience. We had them perform before and after at our gala award ceremony, the last event of my company's large annual conference. Kavita, the main contact, was extremely easy to work with - even for me, a person who has never arranged an entertainment act before. Unfortunately one of our previous events cut into their already short rehearsal time, but she was still able to give a perfect show without any complaints. 
I would definitely recommend this entertainment for any event! They are so much fun! 

Kayla M, Corporate Planner 

 

Our Videographer recommended Kavita's dance crew for our Sangeet and Reception. Karmagraphy was so easy to work with and responsive. They came prepared and were very professional! We had a fusion Chinese/Indian wedding, completely non-traditional. Kavita helped us with our co-Ed Barat entrance which was a hit. Kavita and Karmagraphy made my husband and I look like we knew what we were doing! They were spectacular! They got our guests pumped and got them to participate and dance. Kavita performed at the Sangeet and danced Bhangra. The dancers were all phenomenal. They even stayed till the end to help us with audience participation after our Dandiya dance. During the reception the dancers did a Bollywood routine and our guests were so impressed. Both nights the dancers were gorgeous and their performances was spot on! They added a special touch to our Indian fusion wedding. Kavita even went out of her way to help one of my guest tie her saree after showing up uncomfortable and awkward in it, Kavita helped her tie the saree and put my guest at ease. Thank you Karmagraphy!!

The dancers included a Vietnamese, two women from Delhi, two guys from California, and a hip-hop-jazz man from New York. Vox was as focused on her dance steps as she was her fashion, changing from cut-off shorts to Indian bubble pants
