Why Dance Education?

It is easy to learn steps on a song or music piece. But does it prepare you to dance on any other music or choreograph dance?

Everyone learns alphabets before learning to read or write. Shouldn’t this apply to other disciplines in life such as art, music and dance?

How can I get eduction in Dance?

A classical Indian dance like Kathak can provide a strong foundation in this art. With a good foundation, you learn to dance and choreograph on any music: classical or contemporary; eastern or Western.

Even though Kathak is ancient art, it has evolved over centuries, embracing newer dance forms, and also giving birth to other dance forms e.g. Flamenco. Students trained in Kathak adapt to JAZZ and TAP with ease. Kathak prepares you to dance on any Indian or western music.
