Philosophy and Methodology

Dr. Joyce Paul Siamak teaches performing arts from an eclectic perspective with specific emphasis on History, Literature, Architecture, Mathematics of notation, texts on Natya, Physiology and Kinesiology. While she believes this is instructionally sound methodology, it may not be the right choice for everyone.

Her understanding of the human body helps her assist young dancers with adapting their technique to suit their bodies. 

She truly believes that a hard working student can achieve more than a talent student who may not put in enough rigor. At Arpan, she encourages reliance on hard work and persistance more than raw talent.

The unique quality of Joyce’s work is her ability to stay within the definition of classicism while pushing boundaries & exploring non-traditional themes & contexts.

Her work 
strongly gravitates towards social problems & women’s issues.
