Who is CONNECT for?
CONNECT 3 Pre Professional Dance Training Program In Bangalore is for anyone who is interested in learning contemporary dance. Since we do understand your time constraints around your regular work hours, the course is designed keeping in mind that you may get intensive training without impacting your work.
There are two batches for CONNECT- Weekday and Weekends.
The weekday batch is from Monday to Thursday 7 am to 9 am, which is 8 hours in a week and subsequently over 32 hours of intense technique training over one month.
The weekend batch is on Saturdays and Sundays 10:30 am to 2:30 pm. This too is 8 hours in a week and hence over 32 hours a month.
CONNECT 3 starts on 9th June 2018. Registrations are open now.
CONNECT 3 Pre Professional Dance Training Program is designed in such a way that you can choose either of the batches and yet continue with your work, uninterrupted. This course is specifically for working professionals with a strong desire to learn movement arts.
Who are the facilitators for CONNECT?
In every new batch of CONNECT, we change our teachers in order to give the best experience to our students who must learn as much as they can in a span of 4.5 months.
