Keraleeyam - 2007
Cultural fiesta in Palakkad
The Swaralaya music and dance festival-Oct.2007

"The piece de resistance of the festival was the 'Keraleeyam' presented by Vadodara-based Rema Shrikant and her seven disciples. The fine tuning of the group unfolded poetry on stage. Poetry that had imbued the cultural aesthetics of Kerala, starting a temple procession and a caparisoned elephant. The perfect blend of music and dance underscored the choreography of Rema Shrikant that had integrated elements of Mohiniyattam, Bharatanatyam, Kathakali, Kalaripayattu, harvest songs, folklore and myths,among other things".

Rabindra Sadan was bursting at the seams on that day, the last day of the festival. There were people sitting on the floor of the hall".

Captivating Mystical 'Maya' 

"The stage was full of happenings. Happenings of the world. They came and went enthralling the audience, and before any interpretation, they were gone, just like `maya'. Maya - the ballet choreographed by dancer Rema Shrikant from Vadodara, was a wonderful piece of beauty.. 
Fast paced, there was not a moment which did not engross the audience. The movements were supple and the performers were good with their style and coordination".

Shree Ganesha - 1998
Three Words Pronounced in Dance

"The dance ballet on Shree Ganesha organized by the Ellora Centre for Performing Arts on Sunday evening was an educative and scintillating experience.The most striking part of the programme was the excellent synchronization amongst the 15 dancers and the flawless flow of the sequences. Not to forget the dexterity of the dancers, both at the abhinaya and nritta, pure dance. The best tribute to the performance was the refusal of the audience, at the C.C. Mehta Auditorium to budge from their seats till the programme ended'.
