"Surabhi Bharadwaj presented an enchanting performance with neat abhinaya and crisp movements."
– Anitha Nagendra (Narthaki)

Broadway world, New York, August 17, 2016

"Surabhi Bharadwaj of San Francisco taught the audience the power of projection through her solo, "Aadu Pambe". Choreographed in the Bharatanatyam style, every gesture and turn of the head in this emotionally affecting piece seemed to convey exquisitely rendered details from an epic mythological tale. Ms. Bharadwaj expressed graceful supplication before some godly creature through the power of kundalini. With shocking balances that never seemed to freeze - rather they constantly shifted almost imperceptibly - and coiling arms that looked serpentine, Ms. Bharadwaj kept the audience entranced even as her movements repeated themselves. In repetition, the power of her gestures seemed to deepen..."

"Surabhi Bharadwaj peppered her solo, “Aadu Pambe,” with high kicks, knee rolls, and backbends, including one in which her head reached all the way down between her legs. Hers was the most acrobatic Bharatanatyam solo I’ve ever seen, in fact. "

"She was flexible and energetic during her presentation. 

She performed difficult yogic postures at ease 

and received applauses from Dr. Vasundhara Doraswamy and the audience."

"The petite dancer's natural flair blossomed. Her gait and stance 

were elegant and she moved like one sure of her credentials. 

Thanks to Surabhi's confident, stately 'angika', forays & steady 'anga shudha'. "
