This sanc­tu­ary of art wel­comes chil­dren into the artis­tic and cul­tural pur­suit of clas­si­cal In­dian dance and mu­sic. The cen­tre caters to chil­dren as young as four years old and be­lieves that the holis­tic growth of a child is through the in­volve­ment of mu­sic and dance. An­cient dances like Bharatanatyam, Odissi and Kuchipudi in­volve rig­or­ous prac­tise and dis­ci­pline, which will be in­stilled in your child with the help of their ex­pe­ri­enced and cre­ative in­struc­tors. There’s also the much loved Bol­ly­wood dance, pop­u­larised by the nu­mer­ous Hindi films stream­ing across the In­dian media. For some­thing more cur­rent, con­tem­po­rary dance classes are also avail­able, where stu­dents are taken through the con­trolled foot­work of bal­let while in­cor­po­rat­ing mod­ern and jazz styles of dance. If dance is not your lit­tle one’s thing, con­sider en­cour­ag­ing them to pick up Car­natic vo­cal, a sys­tem of mu­sic and singing from South­ern In­dia, the Venu, which is the old­est flute in In­dia and has fig­ured greatly in an­cient folk­lore and In­dian mythol­ogy, or the Bala Vi­har, an in­tro­duc­tory course that’s spe­cially crafted for chil­dren be­tween four to six years old where they will be ex­posed to the prin­ci­ples of dance, mu­sic, yoga and In­dian cul­ture. 116 Jalan Ber­hala, Brick­fields, KL (03 2274 3709); 5392 Jalan Dato’ Palem­bang Bukit Baru, Malacca (06 231 0576); 1 Babington Av­enue, Ge­orge Town, Pe­nang (04 228 8575); 19 Jalan Da­pat, Jo­hor Bahru, Jo­hor (07 222 7400/www.tfa.org.my).
