|On Winning the DPA Award
2015 Dance Performance Atelier Award is a great honor to me. As a recent C
MA, from the Laban/Bartenieff Institute in NY (and a post-graduate from the Laban Centre, London, 2002) I experience the world of Laban's theories and practices as one of the most articulate systems for awakening one's sense of perception and understanding of human behavior. It's a perfect marriage of the mind and body - no Cartesian Divisions - instead a unique wholeness.
Through the DPA Award, my own choreographic vision and creative works will gain the opportunity to reach even beyond the world of dance, entering into a world of communication, crossing boundaries and engaging in languages far beyond the semantic!
I look forward to the collaborative mentoring, and a world of Harmony!

Preeti talks about LIMS
" The Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies is a rare gem that is both a mirror to one's own behavioral patterns and a risk-free environment to bring about change within and outside.
To be nurtured and encouraged by a diverse community of deep thinkers and doers is a rare gift and I am very glad and excited to belong to the unique group of CMAs, which exists world-wide."
