Students are required to wear loose pyjamas/kurta to class. with a dupatta. Skirts, shorts, jeans and T shirts are not allowed.
Bindi, bangles and a small chain are a must. Hair must be braided and not loose. Please keep all hair falling on the face, as it then hinders eye coordination and is distractive. A hair band would be helpful to do this.
At the beginning of each class, time will be spent on stretching warm up and reviewing adavus and old lessons. New lessons will be taught only upon demonstrated accomplishment of previously taught lessons. Students are also expected to review lessons at home before arriving to class, including theory and practice. It is strongly recommended to set up a daily home practice time for 15-30 minutes a day. Home practice will reduce the number of mistakes that the student would commit in class and allows the student to advance more quickly.
Classes will vary in size 10-15 per class. Students will be grouped according to their skill level and not age. Class schedules for siblings will be discussed with the parents in the event of different time requirements.
No gum, food, snacks or drinks allowed in the studio.
Each student may bring a sealed, non-spill water bottle to class and take it home at the end of the class. All items left behind, including clothes will be donated to the salvation army at the end of the month.
