The Answers You Need
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT TO START LEARNING BHARATHANATYAM?
The minimum age to enrol is 5, however, there are no upper age limits. It is never too late to start, only a willingness to learn.
ARE THERE OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS TO PERFORM ON STAGE?
Yes. We believe that stage performances are a great learning experience for students, to develop self-confidence and the skills to coordinate with others on stage, let alone the motivation and excitement of performing. All students will have opportunities to perform at our Annual Concert every year. Intermediate to Advanced level students will perform more regularly, in cultural festivals and other events.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE FOR DANCE CLASSES?
Yes, we have a uniform at Samarpana which are tailor-made for each student. Please check out the Samarpana Uniforms section on the Classes Page
I HAVE PREVIOUSLY LEARNT SOME BHARATHANATYAM, WHICH LEVEL DO I JOIN?
If you have learnt some Bharathanatyam elsewhere, it is a good idea to contact us so that we can assess which level you are at.
HOW MUCH ARE THE FEES FOR BHARATHANATYAM CLASSES?
Our classes run as per the NSW school term. Fees are $160 per term for group classes, payable at the beginning of the term. Private lessons are charged at $25 per hour. Please review our fee policy here.
DO YOU ACCEPT CREATIVE KIDS OR ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS?
Yes. We are an Approved Provider for both NSW Creative Kids and Active Kids Vouchers. Parents of school-aged children are eligible to receive one $100 Creative Kids voucher and 2 x $100 Active Kids Vouchers every year.
You can use these vouchers towards your child's term fees. Please go to the Service NSW website to get your vouchers, then email us a copy of the voucher(s) to claim it, after you have enrolled in our classes.
DO YOU OFFER ANY TRIAL CLASS?
Yes. You can have a no-obligation trial class. If you love the class, (which we are sure you would) and would like to continue the sessions, you need to enrol and pay full term fees, including the trial class. If you do not wish to join us, you do not need to pay anything for the trial lesson.
