We are India’s premier classical ballet school affiliated to the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing, London. We are over 9 years old now and our dream is to be Asia’s best ballet academy and performing arts company. We swear by our uncompromising attitude towards providing highest quality training to our students in a world-class environment. All our teachers are ISTD (worldwide recognized from London) qualified and come from abroad and are equally if not more passionate about Ballet and providing the best to the students.
The class environment is nurturing yet challenging much like the work environment in office. We believe in transparency and giving our best to whatever we embark on. We are professionals yet fun loving. We love the diversity in our team, which works very closely together. Being resourceful, street smart, solution oriented, experiment and fail fast to learn and grow is encouraged. We are all connected to Ballet or dance in some form. We love creativity and have a strong sense of what is excellent, good and so-so in the world of dance. We use every experience at work, to learn, apply ourselves and grow. We spend hours preparing costumes for shows, designing brochures, tweaking the website, writing blogs, pushing ourselves but don’t be surprised if you catch us watching stupefying ballet videos and choreographies from inspiring companies and dancers from over the world or sweating it out in ballet, Yoga or Pilates classes. Yes, everyone at work has free access to all classes to be fit and creatively charged up!
