Our children’s dance school was built to encourage a love of dance and instill a practice of disciplined study. We have been teaching in Manhattan and Brooklyn since 2013 and continue to expand our offering annually. We offer classes in the following dance forms: Bharathanatyam, Kathak, Semi-Classical, and Bollywood. Our focus is on expanding knowledge of Indian dance technique, including movement, rhythm, grace, expression and performance. Students develop body awareness, confidence, and discipline. Our accomplished and dedicated instructors led by our Director, Minila Shah, and Assistant Director, Shachi Phene, work with students of all levels to help them develop and grow as dancers. Classes are both fun and challenging and are open to children of all ages, levels, and backgrounds.
SPRING RECITAL & SHOWCASE
The Ajna students and Ensemble will present their work from the Spring term on May 20 at 3 pm at PS 20 (166 Essex St, New York, NY). Purchase tickets below for a great show featuring Bollywood, semi-classical, Bharathanatyam, and Kathak dances by budding talents of all ages! If you have a child who may be interested in taking classes, this is a great way for them to see their peers perform and for you to get a sense of Ajna’s style.
