Great dancers have:
strength flexibility stamina technique expressiveness versatility
Noor's NYC classes for children are designed to take young dancers from their first steps through their solo debuts and beyond. Every student receives a solid, technical training in Bharathanatyam as well as exposure to other movement styles to make them highly-skilled, versatile dancers. Each prospective student will be evaluated and placed in a class appropriate to his or her level. Experienced new students may be placed in a lower-level class so that they can adjust to Noor's style and methodology.
body strength & flexibility
confidence-building & presentation
music & dance theory
As students develop, they will learn other aspects of performance such as costuming, direction, backstage management, and more to become all-around performers. Older students will have the opportunity to shadow the director in professional rehearsals and planning sessions and take on important production roles.
Noor's classes require a high level of commitment to regular attendance and practice from both students and parents. We strongly believe that a child's dance education requires a 3-part team, consisting of the child, the teacher, and the parents. Please reach out to Shachi at with any inquiries.
