Fall Semester Beginning

Dear Natyalaya parents and students,

We are eagerly looking forward to a brand new semester starting Aug 25th extending for 16 classes till the middle of December. Despite the increase in Austin utility rates, owing to the uncertain economy we have endeavored to keep tuition the same.

Beginners – Alarippu: $235.00
Jathiswaram – Varnam: $250.00
Post-varnam: $260.00

All new students will need to pay a one time $45 registration fee.

We are also offering additional adavu review sessions and abhinaya sessions as the semester unfolds. There are several performance opportunities and performances that are coming up. We are planning a repeat show of Seonee- a Jungle tale in November or December. We will also be working on Navasandhi Kautuvams and Navarasa for possible performances.
This semester the teachers will be handing out folders for each student with practice sheets and theory handouts.

Another initiative is implementing uniform T shirts for practices and kurta tops for performances that can be paired with patiala pants or tights. The teacher will share with you the colors and designs they are considering and will be taking orders for the T-shirts or kurta tops once we have some pricing available.

I will be traveling to India Aug 21- Sep 12. My classes will be covered by other teachers. The schedule will be as follows:

Sun 1-2 pm: Dharini Chandrasekhar
Sun 2-3 pm: Gayathri Iyer
Sun 3-4 pm: Gayathri Iyer

Mon 6:30 pm: Pavithra Ramadoss

Tues 6-7 pm: Juhi Amodhwala
Tues 7-8 pm: Juhi Amodhwala

Wed 5:30 pm: Gayathri Iyer
Wed 7 pm: Nikita Prasad

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU OBSERVE PARKING RULES WHEN I AM NOT HERE SO THERE ARE NO ISSUES WITH MY NEIGHBORS. NO PARKING ALONG THE CURVE OPPOSITE THE STUDIO AND PLEASE PARK ON ONE SIDE ONLY PREFERABLY IN BLACK OAK.

Looking forward to an exciting and productive semester!

Vinitha, Sandhya Sudhir, Gayathri, Pavithra, Kanaka, Neha, Dharini, Sandhya Velu, Meera, Nikita and Juhi.
