Q: What should I wear?
A: Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely but remain barefoot. Throughout the course of learning, and no matter what level you are at, all dancing is done without shoes. If you feel more comfortable in gym shoes, then go ahead and use them to practice. But be aware they restrict your foot movements. Avoid using socks on wooden flooring, as it is accident prone for sliding.
Q: Is there a suggested age requirement?
A: Rather than age, the requirements are the will to learn, the physical capability and a mental alertness to concentrate.
Q: What if I don’t have any dance background and learn quite slowly. Will I be able to catch up?
A: Yes, definitely. Dance background is not required for taking any of our basic dance classes. It is advisable that you start with the basics and then work your way into learning other more challenging pieces of choreography. Our instructor is available to answer any questions you may have via email, blogs or ichat. Keep in mind that in order to learn you must take the first step. You will never learn if you doubt yourself or put it off.

Q: How many classes do I need to take to really look like a Bollywood dancer?
