Alumni Spotlight

     Gerami Academy keeps in touch with their former Graduates of Gerami Academy of Fine Arts.  By staying connected to Gerami's past, we show our present and future students that we are involved in the "person" as well as the "student".

     Our "Spotlight Student" that we have chosen is one that we are very proud of.  Regardless of whether our students pursue careers in dance, medical, legal, business owners, teachers, specialty fields, etc., they have developed character, discipline and a strong work ethic that serves them in their endeavors.  Dance has played an important field in developing resiliency and determination to keep them working toward a goal.
