"I think OYP makes you more disciplined as a dancer and as a person. It gives you vast knowledge about dance both theoretically and physically from different dance teachers. You get to learn from someone like Shiamak and train under him. You also get to meet a lot of different dancers from all over the world and share your dance experiences. I think it's the best dance program in India for anyone who wants to be a professional dancer in the future. You live a dancers life for a year and it's just a start to something amazing. If dance is a big part of your life and you want to be a professional dancer personally I think Shiamak's OYP is the best place for you and it's a very big platform"

Aishwarya Raut (Mumbai)

"I would like to first thank Shiamak Davar for selecting me for the One Year Program. I was one of the weak students at the beginning, but one day Shiamak told me to just trust him and I would grow as a person. From that day on I have given my soul to him. He’s made me positive and a good person. I got the opportunity to act in a film called “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” and dance with Jacqueline Fernandez in Star Guild awards. If you want to be a good dancer, if you want to be a good human being, and if you want to make a career in dance then OYP is a must for you."

Kalpit Kharvasiya (Mumbai)

"The most important thing that I learnt in OYP is to always be positive and to block any negative thoughts. This control of mind and thoughts has helped me in dance as well. Assisting Shiamak in OYP was my first teaching experience I never thought I’d be able to teach over sixty students. I couldn’t speak in English at all, but with OYP my confidence has improved a lot and now I can teach in English and talk to guest international teachers without fear. Along with dance, I’ve gained knowledge in handling administrative responsibilities as well including documentation and maintaining video archives. OYP has changed me completely for the better."

Pratik Keswani (Ahmedabad)

"Through OYP, Shiamak has given me a chance to live my dream, gifted me a family away from my family back home, for making me realise who I am and making me understand that dance is much more than just steps. I never had the opportunity of dancing professionally at shows, with OYP I got to perform at many shows including Star Guild Awards, Star Parivaar Awards and Mirchi Music Awards. While watching Shiamak choreograph at these shows, I actually realise why Shiamak is Shiamak! I truly learnt how to be professional while working."

Apoorva Jain (Saharanpur)

"Oyp has really changed my life. Before the program, I was a complete introvert and scared to talk to people. But now I can freely express myself. My friends have also noticed this change for the better and feel I have become more independent. Shiamak is the coolest Guru I have met and he is always there to help and guide us. Performing with The Shiamak Davar Dance Company, watching the instructors dance and the film stars rehearse, all this was a dream come true. During one of these shows I tweeted and the legend, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan actually remembered and called me on stage to meet me. This was the biggest event in my life and want to thank Shiamak for it."

Kumar Rishabh (Pune)

"I'm from Vancouver, Canada and I have been a part of SHIAMAK for nearly ten years as a student. My teacher insisted that I must do OYP because I wanted to dance for life, so I decided to learn from Shiamak himself and came all the way to India. The best part about OYP was learning different styles and technique from teachers that came from abroad like Esophia, Che, Tara Jean and Mark. The overall learning experience from Shiamak himself was the best thing ever. We had a lot of different lectures including acting and dance therapy that I enjoyed a lot. I really want to thank Shiamak for giving me this opportunity and giving me this life changing experience. Not only did we learn dance, technique and style, but we also learnt about ourselves and how to grow as people. For the people who want to join OYP, you should really go for it because it’s an unbelievable experience and I can’t even put words to what I felt and experienced."

Priya Pranjivan (Vancouver)

"I’m from London and joined Shiamak’s classes when they first started here in May 2011. I was selected in SPB and began training. I was very eager to learn and when I found out about OYP, I knew this is exactly what I wanted to do. Learning so many different things all day, every day is a gift but the fact that we were taught by Shiamak himself pushed me to do OYP even more. OYP has taught me that dance isn’t just about the movement of your physical body, it’s more about the movement of your emotions through your soul which are limitless. We have really learnt how to let go of our emotions and dance freely, but with the technique. This one year has been a major catalyst in my personal growth and it has helped me to understand what my strengths and weaknesses are, how to accept them and nurture the, how to adjust and adapt, everything.”
