Selective Reviews and Compliments

Swami Dayanand Saraswati (A renowned Hindu Scholar), Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania
"Suba is a gifted dancer.  The item "Bho Sambo Siva Sambo" is the best I've seen so far". Her performance was very good.  Suba's enthusiasm has the ability to impress people of all ages. Her expressions are very captivating.  Infact, students who gave up dancing would want to learn again after seeing her perform".

The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, NewYork
"Suba's brilliant performance was truly one of the most graceful yet dynamic, versatile and pious performances that we had the honor to experience.  Complicated footwork, truly natural abhinaya, difficult portrayal of Karanas (inspiring for our most adept Hatha Yogis), and most of all the overwhelming experience of Divine presence communicated through your dance left our Yoga Teachers in utter awe of the depth and beauty of the ancient Bharata culture.

The Indain Express News, New York, April 28, 2002
Suba Parmar presented an enchanting Bharatanatyam performance under the auspices of the Hindu Temple at Bridgewater, NJ.  Crisp, flawless and graceful movements characterized the entire show.  Suba Parmar was outstanding in the depiction of Valli as a gypsy princess.  The Tillana in Raag Sivaranjani with impeccable Tala calculations won a thunderous round of applause.

Sri Siva Visnu Temple, Maryland
"The continuing patronage of the temple for the arts was evident when one among the younger generation artistes, Suba Ramesh Parmar made a mark by an outstanding show of talents in Bharatanatyam.  The audience sat spell bound at her remarkable prowess and command over footwork and abhinaya. Suba rightly deserves the title of the "Queen of Navarasas". Sri Siva Visnu Temple should be congratulated for arranging a performance of high quality by an artist of such caliber.

The Hindu
"Kum. Suba Krishnamurthy gave a delightful Bharatanatyam with her fine facial expressions.  The Abhogi Raag Varnam, and padham were impressive.  She was very graceful in Meera Bhajan".

"Suba, a tall charming girl with a perfect figure essaying different poses of Lord Shiva at Chidambaram that notable for their elegance as well as intricate twisting of the body limbs.  With amazing dexterity, Suba did split-second poses and drew richly deserved applauses. Truly an immaculate performance".

"Suba's cosmic dance of Shiva stood out for her appeal and technical prowess.

Hindustan Times Evening News (Monday May 28, 1990)
The "Anandanadamidum" - a solo by Suba depicting Lord Shiva's dance of bliss captivated the audience by the danseuse's fluent execution of those most difficult Karanas (Postures) which very few dancers dare execute these days.  Her cobra dance was breath-taking in its intricacy".

Pollachi Tamil Isai Sangam
"Kum. Suba Krishnamurthy's recital was very well received during the Third Dance festival of Pollachi Tamil Isai Sangam.
