Open/Adult Classes

Our Philosophy

Anyone can learn to dance. This is one of Ekta Creative's core values, that no matter what age or level you are at, there is something for you. We believe in providing a platform and path for anyone who loves to dance and wants to learn and grow. Each class is designed to help build confidence, develop awareness of rhythm and musicality, and challenge within the body's strengths and limitations. Our teaching philosophy places an emphasis on nurturing and developing deep understanding and skill of movement, music, rhythm and expression.

What sets us apart?

Our small class sizes and 10 years of Dance Teaching experience and 4 years of Primary and Special Needs Teaching experience shows that we understand that every person no matter their age and ability just needs attention, nurturing and an enriching environment to grow as a dancer.

The Classes

Minimum age requirement for all Open/Adult Classes is 15 years of age.

Over the course of a year, students are provided with a holistic experience of dance, learning a variety of styles from the Indian Subcontinent. Over the term, students will learn one dance routine in South Asian Dance styles such as Semi Classical, some forms of Traditional Folk, Contemporary, and Bollywood, in an integrated setting.

We offer two options for Adult Classes– Beginner and Intermediate.

Beginners: The Beginners class is perfect for anyone looking to start dance for the first time, or get back into dancing after a long break. Classes feature step by step guidance and a focus on technique development. We offer two options for the Beginner class, a Monday and a Sunday class.
Intermediate: The Intermediate class is for dancers with moderate experience and features intricate choreography and technique development. Applicants to this class are required to submit a video audition for entry.

Our term structure follows the NSW Public School dates and are 10 weeks long. Enrolment is only open for new students in Term 1, 2 and 3, with Term 4 being reserved for our end of year concert rehearsals only.

We do not run our classes on a casual attendance basis, all students are expected to attend for the full term.
