How to learn Mohiniyattam as a beginner?

So, while it might not be super easy, it's definitely achievable with effort and passion.

How long will it take to learn Mohiniyattam?

The time it takes to learn Mohiniyattam varies for each person. It depends on factors like how often you practice, your natural talent, and your dedication. Some people may start performing basic steps in a few months, while mastering the dance could take several years. Consistent practice and learning from a good teacher are key to improving faster. So, while there's no fixed timeline, with patience and effort, you can make progress and enjoy dancing Mohiniyattam!

How many steps are there in Mohiniyattam?

Can I enroll my 3-year-old daughter in this class?

You can connect for a free meeting with the teacher. They will evaluate the potential of your daughter and guide you accordingly. Ideally, initiating kids into classical dance classes as early as possible is better. It helps them to develop a better sense of rhythm. They have a better posture and a more agile body movement. They get their fundamentals stronger and faster than older students.

I am 40 years old. I have never danced before. Can I learn Mohiniyattam?

Of course, you can start learning Mohiniyattam at the age of 45. The only thing you have to ensure is that you are physically fit to be able to dance. It is better to consult your physician so that you are aware of the limitations and possibilities of your body. Update about this to your dance teacher and then start learning dance.
