FAQ Private Lessons Students Corner Annual Dance Concert

I am a beginner dancer at the age of 40.  Do you have classes for me?
Yes, we do. We have adult classes specialized for beginners in many of our locations.  It is never too late to learn dance!  It’s a great way to keep fit and have fun at the same time.

You have many locations, but Arya is not anywhere near me.  Will you come to our city?
Yes, we will!  With an overwhelming response within our community and the commitment of our staff, Arya can now come to your city!  Please click on Locations and Schedules and fill in the form.  Gather 12 students in your location and we will start classes! Tell your friends and family.  With a larger response, the sooner we can staff the location in your city.  

My daughter wants to learn filmi, but I want her to learn classical.  Is there a middle ground?
We understand your concern.  Since 90% of our teachers are trained in a classical dance style, we remember how rigorous the training can be.  As a result, the majority of our classes are structured to teach both classical and filmi dance.  The first 45 minutes is either Kathak or Bharatnatyam (depending on teacher’s background at that location) and second 45 minutes is Filmi Fusion.  While the student will get to learn bollywood dancing for performances, they too will receive proper training in the beginning of class. This balance is great!  Please keep in mind, the 1st half of class is proper classical training and not a fusion of styles.  The later part of class is bollywood fusion.

I have a child who is 3 years old, is she too young to join dance class?
We normally take students starting at age 4.  If you have a 3 year old child, you can take him or her to the first class for a trial.  The teacher will evaluate your child’s attention span and will confirm with you whether he or she is ready for class.

I have several years of dance experience, and I would really love to teach. How do I apply?
We get many requests from students and professional dancers wishing to become teachers for our academy. If you are genuinely interested in being enrolled on a professional teacher training course, then please fill in the on-line application with your dance background and location of interest. 

I want my daughter to graduate in classical dance.  Do you offer certification for that?
Yes we do.  We encourage our students to learn either Kathak or Bharatnatyam, as classical dance is the foundation for proper training.  Arya is affiliated with Gandharva Mahavidyalaya in India.  At the end of each year, an examiner will travel from India to our studio and will give examinations to students who wish to graduate in Kathak or perform their Arrengetram in Bharatnatyam.  The course length is 7 years for classical dance classes only.  Students will receive certification from Arya and Gandharva Mahavidyalaya from India, both recognized worldwide.

I am a beginner, will I still be able to perform at shows?
All students will receive the opportunity to perform at our year end dance concert.  Students who have been training with Arya longer will receive more opportunities to perform onstage throughout the year.

Am I allowed to try out another class or transfer to a different location?
Yes, you can try as many classes as you wish during the 1st trial week.  You may also transfer to another location, if space is available.  However, keep in mind teachers differ in choreography from location to location.

I saw some of your dances at a recent event and loved the performance!
I am organizing a show and would like your professional team to participate.
We appreciate your interest and would gladly take part.  Our dance troupe and teachers take pride in participating in various shows from charity events, concerts, to special occasions.  Please fill in the on-line request form with your requirements.

Is it possible to learn a dance within a month for a friend’s wedding?
Anything is possible with Arya! We understand fully that often some people like to learn a whole dance and a particular song for a special occasion. We offer Private lessons for all those individuals or groups who may have a special request, want to learn at their own convenience, or may want to learn in a specific amount of time. Call our office and let our staff know your specifications.
