At SNDA, we value the arts and aim to nurture creativity and encourage original thinking among our students. We have worked hard to develop a vibrant studio culture that has a strong focus on developing a sense of community within the academy.
At The Academy of SNDA, we view dance as a means by which students can be taught self-discipline, creativity, respect, strength and team skills.
The classes in our Academy are designed to teach and promote correct dance technique, correct body alignment, fitness, flexibility, musicality and the joy of movement. We provide students with quality dance training in a professional and nurturing method. Our classes focus on technical mastery, as well as artistic and performance qualities. The faculty here at SNDA strive to establish a positive environment in which students can all feel part of the studio family.
We also provide mentorship for student-teachers that in turn become role models for younger students.
Project AHSAS is an initiative taken by Sumeet Nagdev Dance Arts (SNDA) in 2007 to support the artistic development of less privileged students by making dance education affordable to them. With this project, SNDA strives to impart quality dance education and bring the dance world together without any discrimination in the society. Until today, over 1000 children have benefited through this project.
Under Project AHSAS, SNDA offers full and part scholarships to students having potential to pursue dance professionally. In the past SNDA has offered scholarships to children from the slums of Dharavi, Antop Hill and Govandi. A huge supporter of this project has been Josefin Wikstrom from Sweden, who looks after the financial needs to support dance education of these children.Read More
