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. We put emphasis on body strength and flexibility from a young age. 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.
As students develop, they will learn music and dance theory, as well as other aspects 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.
