What kids learn
At Attakkalari, each class is carefully structured. It begins with a welcoming activity and warm up to prepare the students. The warm-up focuses on the essence of the dance style, and the faculty works on the flexibility, strength and performance aspects accordingly. The teachers then focus on a choreography, combination or activity before culminating the class in a cool-down and reflective session. In these sessions, the students learn about movement and technique of the style they are exploring, they engage in peer-interaction and peer-learning and develop a relationship with themselves by expressing and exploring through movement and dance, as well.
