Our classes consist of learning different hand gestures, feet movement, and rhythmic patterns. The first years in the curriculum are designed around understanding rhythm and establishing proper posture, balance, coordination and flexibility. As students progress, emphasis is placed on folk dance forms and its history. Lastly, students focus on intricate rhythmic patterns and classical dance forms, including Bharatnatyam, Kathak and Munipuri. BIPA also offers specialty classes in Bharatnatyam and Munipuri.
