New Location: Lorton Workhouse

Perhaps our most exciting news is the start of Nepal Dance School at the Workhouse in Lorton, Virginia. All classes and workshops will be conducted in wood-floored and mirrored professional dance studios. Classical Indian Kathak classes will taught on Sundays to live music. Ghungharoos (bells) will be available for purchase through NDS. Bollywood classes will be held on Tuesday afternoons and throughout Sunday as well. Tabla instruction will be starting early April for beginners and advanced students. Instruments may be rented or purchased from NDS for this class.

In addition, NDS is offering a number of Bollywood one day Workshops on Sundays throughout Spring and Summer. Dates and times can be found in the Workhouse catalog or online.

The Workhouse is offering a special bonus for people who register early! Please go here for exact times, fees, location, and registration details (either use the search function or click more->dance and browse for our classes). Printed catalogs are available upon request from the Workhouse, or from NDS at one of our current teaching locations.

Bollywood & Kathak Classes for Fall

NDS is pleased to add a new location for Bollywood and Kathak dance! We will be at Audrey Moore Rec Center in Springfield every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. In addition, we are also offering our regular classes at Fairfax County schools through the Park & Rec Department: Monday nights at Fairfax County Government Center, Wednesdays at Longfellow Middle School, Thursdays at Navy Elementary, and Fridays at Stone Middle School. Check your ParkTakes magazine, available at all local libraries for schedules, fees, and times! These classes are limited to 15 people per class, so sign up early!

Private classes are filling fast for the Fall season. Times allotted to regular students will be given first preference, but we need confirmation to hold your space. Instruction is offered privately in the following dance styles: Kathak, Bollywood, Nepali Folk, and Tabla.

NDS also has a packed Fall schedule with performances for Young Audiences of Virginia (details coming soon), all around the state, and through CAPs right here in Fairfax County.

We hope you will join us on October 6 at the National Theatre when NDS performs a program highlighting the various dance styles of Nepal and India.

Nepal Dance School now offers fine quality tablas and madals, as well as providing service and repair.

Private Classes

The new semester is starting for private classes in dance and tabla, both for single students or semi-private groups. Please inquire for available times and dates. All classes run for 8 week sessions.
