CLASSES

We offer Kathak lessons in Illinois at various Chicago suburbs, currently - Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Downers Grove and Naperville. Classes are held weekly in 6 to 8 week sessions. Sessions are conducted all year with a break in summer (July/Aug) and winter (Dec/ Jan). 

SYLLABUS

We are aligned with the ISTD Kathak Dance syllabus that aims to preserve the traditions while adapting to contexts in which they are now practiced. REFER: http://www.istd.org/about-us/documents/kathak-syllabus-outline/

 

EXAMINATIONS

Examinations are conducted annually by an ISTD certified examiner. There is a Primary Examination for children up to the age of eight years. There are six Graded Examinations, intended to guide a student progressively towards perfection in presentation of Kathak Dance technique and repertoire. There are four Vocational Graded Examinations, which offer students a route to professional training either as a dancer or dance teacher. Both the Grades and Vocational Grades are approved by Ofqual and are on the Qualifications and Credit Framework

NOTE: The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is the unit and credit based national qualifications system for England, Wales and Northern Ireland which enables the accumulation and transfer of credits and the easy identification of each achievement’s level and size.  Only qualifications on this framework will be recognized for equivalence with other countries’ qualifications via the EQF.
