Welcome to Session 2020-2021
Welcome Note from Artistic Director.
"Dance is Divine". Dance gives you a positive perspective towards life and helps you lead a healthy (physically and mentally) life-style, full of enthusiasm, positivity and hard work. It gives you a platform to express and exchange ideas while enhancing your personality. With this motto and objective, we continue our journey of Exploring Indian Classical Dance called Kathak or Kathaka.
Challenges are part of life at every step. Here, we believe challenges are to be accepted and won over. As I welcome you all to the new school session, we are keeping in mind the new norms of life amidst COVID-19 and are fully committed to providing the full Dance Karishma experience prior to COVID while keeping everyone's safety (students and staff) as top priority.
When are we starting In-Person Classes? Not in July for sure. We will follow the guidelines of a typical Full-Time school in Bay Area with some additional precautions.
Please fill the google sheet and share your email address and perspective/preference of in-person classes here.
What's New? Concept of Open Space Learning: WE HAVE A PROJECT UNDERGOING TO CREATE A PLATFORM FOR OPEN SPACE LEARNING. This project is being designed to again keep the students and staff of Dance Karishma as safe as possible when returning to in-person classes. Project will be completed by end of July. We will move to in-person class with small steps at a time. Everyone will be notified of our next steps to make this happen shortly as I receive your opinion in above sheet.
Do we have exams in Nov? No details as of now. However, we will continue as if exams are occurring as per usual and we will continue to prepare ourselves 200% for the same. If at all we get the form by end of July or early Aug, will notify immediately. We will discuss in details as we get more information....
Please review the School Rules once here.
I welcome you all to new school session. Let's sail through it with Dancing Feet....
Thanks to all parents and students for your utmost support and we continue to thrive towards the wonderful Session together.
