Program Philosophy

The aim of this school is to educate, elevate and entertain through the universal language of dance, Bharata Natyam. Students entering the school are taught basic body movements, Hindu mythology, Indian classical music, Indian Language. The aim is to create a performing artiste out of every student who joins the school. This entails not only learning body movements but also the techniques of stage craft, developing a stage personality and self confidence and ultimately becoming a dance persona.
