The Danceworx Academy was set up in November
of 1998 to teach dance along the lines of dance institutes overseas.
Currently its curriculum consists of styles such as Jazz, Classical
Ballet, Contemporary Dance and Social Dance styles.
Since its inception, the academy, in New Delhi alone, has expanded from a modest base of 100 odd students, 1 teacher and 1 studio to a base of over 4500 students, 60 teachers and 15 studios. In Mumbai it currently stands with a student base of over 600 students, 5 teachers and 3 studios.
The aim of The Danceworx Academy is to develop the student’s creative potential to the highest possible level and to train and channelise young talent under the able guidance of well-trained teachers in an atmosphere of fun, love and values.
Experience has taught us that under performance in any area of life does not necessarily mean a lack of aptitude, it may be lack of interest in that subject, caused by lack of success or lack of confidence. We truly believe that if success principles can be taught in a fun way through dance, all of us would be able to discover our own successes in other areas as well.
The guiding principles of every teacher at The Danceworx:
- Everyone is a 10/10. Teachers help youngsters discover that through their classes.
- Learning is fun! Teachers help students to discover that there is no failure – only experience and information.
- To compete is healthy, but only with oneself. Teachers encourage students to break barriers within their own minds, to discover new possibilities and new paradigms.
- It’s more fun to grow to a position rather than to be gifted one. A principle that is valuable in everyday life. Vision, struggle & prize – is the teaching mantra.
