bullet �Whenever I see her (Preeti) dance, I am moved to a different place.  She has been called �Poetry in Motion� by critics in Florida and tonight you can all see why.  Her energy, facial expressions and stage presence captivate me always. I am sure she was an inspiration to her students tonight and they will now be motivated to reach higher as artists�, said Smt.Meera Prakash (noted author)to the receptive audience. -- Khabar

The recital was enthralling starting with a prayer song to the Shiva and Parvathy dance to the finale on Lord Iyyapa. Sitting in the audience, one does not realize the work behind the success of a show but it was evident that many laborious months of teaching and training by Preeti Shah had gone behind this recital. -- NRIpulse.com

bulletAt the Florida conference held in part at the Wakulla Springs Center, Preeti demonstrated how the dancers training begins in learning the rhythms of the drumming and by being able to verbalize patterns exactly at rapid speeds. Her vocalization of the drumming was virtuosic in itself. Preeti demonstrated the elaborate gestures employed to tell ancient stories and when she finally offered a brief performance, the audience members became aware of the thousands of years of tradition that went into these few moments.-- Attitude U.S.A

bulletPreeti’s concert marked the festival of Navarathri. She showed that one does not have to be Indian to appreciate and enjoy Bharatanatyam. She presented one of her non-Indian students.

bulletHer supple figure, sparkling eyes and complete immersion in the job on hand was conspicuous. The true test of Preeti’s nritta development was in the Varnam, which she executed with finesse, accuracy and a special knack. -- Indian Express
bulletPreeti comes from a family that is soaked in rich ancestral devotion to art. Slim, tall, lissome form, expressive eyes, and lithe limb movements produced a recital that was far above the ordinary. Preeti was able to run through a gamut of emotions most expressively and aptly. The speed and ease with which she essayed quick transformations compelled genuine admiration. Preeti showed herself to be quite superlative in the field of facial expressions. Preeti’s feet missed not a beat in the most intricate and cunningly structured of the passages-even while going through pirouettes and twirls. -- Financial Express
bulletIt’s December and the festival fever is on in Madras. Preeti Vinayak gave a beautiful start with a graceful performance. Smoothly coordinated movements and nimble footwork marked her Nritta.
