- Three Classical Indian (Bharatanatyam) Dance Classes
A Chat with Ninakshi Dance Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Originating from South India, Bharatanatyam is one of the ancient Indian Classical dance styles. We enforce the basic foundation of this intricate dance form to all students to help with rhythm, stability, and hand eye coordination. We implement a structured curriculum that continuously tests a student's knowledge of this amazing art. We have no doubt that this class will produce strong, disciplined dancers with a passion and appreciation for our culture.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? Many of our dancers have no prior dance experience. Some people were born to dance, but here, we believe everyone can be a dancer. All we ask is that you like to dance and are ready to learn! We’ll take care of the rest! We go over every step with you! Start from the beginning at any age!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Artistic Director Nina Kottakuzhiyil started training in classical Indian dancing at the age of 4. She has been dancing different dance styles ever since. Opening up a dance school has always been her dream, as she often says she was destined to dance. During lessons, she strives to impart passion, innovation and vision to each dancer.
What do you love most about your job? I love the fact that I can share my passion for dancing with others, and teach my students with the talent I was given. Dance is a way to get away from the routines of day-to-day life, get lost in music, and make the rest of the world disappear for a little while. This can be you - register now!
