THE TEMPLE OF FINE ARTS
The classical Indian dances here run the gamut from Bharatanatyam to Odissi and Kuchipudi to Bollywood-style. Vocal classes, on the other hand, include Hindustani and Carnatic techniques from the North and South respectively. If your child is keen on picking up a musical instrument, the Temple of Fine Arts offers Venu (the oldest flute in India that has figured greatly in ancient folklore and Indian mythology) lessons.
