"There are two ways of spreading light: to be
The candle, or the mirror that reflects it."

The Noor Dance School teaches students to become versatile, all-around performers. Every student trains rigorously in Bharathanatyam movement and expression as well as in technique from other world dance forms. A strong emphasis is given to building strength and flexibility in the body. As students develop, they also learn technical skills including choreography, stage management, costuming, and direction, and are given opportunities to shadow production of the Academy's professional projects. Every student is personally taught by Shachi and is offered opportunities for workshops with other experts. Students perform regularly at company recitals and shows, as well as at events within the wider New York community.
