MESSAGE FROM NIKITA

Namaste! I’m Nikita and I have been fortunate to discover Indian classical dance from an early age. When I was 18 years old, i went to India by myself on a quest to pursue Kathak dance and find myself. Growing up into my adult years, learning this art form shaped me into who I am today. It instilled discipline, tenacity and gave me values which I live my life by. Learning Kathak had such a profound impact on my physical and mental health that I felt a strong calling to share this with others. 
Since 2005, my company DNC has been training children teenagers and adults of all ages in Kathak dance. Our aim is to Educate and Empower each individual to connect with their cultural identity. Through providing opportunities such as performances and examinations, we instil a sense of confidence in each person who train with us. In 2011, we launched
 a purpose built dance studio in Slough. Opening the studio doors, was the proudest moment of my life and a significant step forward for Indian dance in the UK.

Alongside dance, I am a Yoga instructor since 2010, NLP Master Practitioner since 2012, Reiki healer since 2019 and Personal Development mentor since 2021.
Through all these mediums, I am passionate about guiding people to achieving their full potential.
Through my free Positive Podcast and ‘Journey with Nikita’ YouTube channel, I aim to encourage people to shift their mindsets, develop self belief and follow their dreams, just like I have done. I want people to experience a deeper connection with who they really are, follow their calling and define their life’s purpose.

Trust

DNC has been an established Ltd company since 2005 and at the same premises (DNC Dance & Yoga studio) since 2011.

Empowerment

DNC strives to Empower individuals of all ages to build self esteem, confidence and a strong sense of identity. DNC’s Kathak, Yoga and Personal Development training is tailored towards enhancing physical & mental health.

Communication

DNC’s teachers and staff are trained to be open and honest in all forms of communication. Parents sending their children for dance training, give responsibility not just for their safety but for their well-being and the environment in which they are exposed to. We therefore regularly communicate with parents, provide feedback and set targets for students to fulfil their full potential.

Integrity

DNC is passionate about maintaining the integrity of the classical art form it teaches and showing upmost respect to the Gurus who have passed it down, from generation to generation. We aim to increase appreciation of this among our students and encourage them not to go beyond the boundaries of traditional Kathak dance maintaining its purity and authenticity.

Mentoring

Through careful observation, we support the growth of each student holistically and psychologically as they undertake a journey of self-development in the process of learning dance. DNC’s teachers provide support and mentoring, and the director (Nikita) is a trained life coach of Neuro Linguistic Programming.

Community

Being connected to the community is a vital part of DNC’s success over the last 16 years. We act as a trusted resource to society, providing purpose built dance facilities and bringing people of all ages together celebrating multiculturalism and a shared interest of the arts. DNC supports several charities by providing performers for events and being involved in fundraising events.
