At Noorani Dance School, classes are available for children, teens and adults, ages 5 and up, for beginners, and for those with previous dance experience. Students will receive training in the foundational aspects of the movement technique along with learning the theoretical aspects of the music, history and philosophy of the Kathak tradition.
Performance opportunities for students of Noorani Dance School are provided through various programs including in-studio showcases, intimate performances such as our Mehfil-e-Kathak series, semi-annual large scale productions, and a variety of community performances in partnership with organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
After many years of advanced training, students of Noorani Dance School receiving in depth one to one training from Farah, may have the opportunity to participate in Manzil ke Andaaz - the many aspects of one's journey. This is the first performance of a Kathak solo, which is neither the beginning nor the end. It is a culmination of years of training, hard work and commitment, to be able to share one's skills and knowledge of this vast art form. Through the experience of preparing for this major milestone, the dancer is also awakened to this journey being one that continues for a lifetime.
