Katha Dance Theatre offers a variety of classes for children ages 6 and up as well as adults. Classes focus on technique, grace, and stamina.
Enrollment starts in our Fall session. All late term enrollments are subject to the approval of the school director. Starting in 2019, we have changed our policy to allow for limited registration after the start of the Winter session. This applies only to new students and is at the school director’s discretion. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Students progress from Beginner I to Beginner II to Beginner III to Intermediate I to Intermediate II. Advancement is slow; most students spend 2-3 years in each level. Intermediate-level students demonstrating commitment and skill may be invited to intern with the Katha Dance Theater Company.
Primary classes are conducted September through May, with additional workshops and intensives being offered June through August. Studios are located in the Twin Cities, Hopkins, and Edina.
- School year classes culminate in a class performance in Sadhana, KDT’s annual spring showcase.
Required class attire includes kurta and pajama (Indian shirt and pants), and a set of ghungru (ankle bells). Additional policies regarding classroom protocol, performances, and evaluations can be viewed in the Student Handbook.
