In India there are many classical dance & music teachers who have been teaching dance & music to small and local crowd as a part time or full time earning & engagement. Unfortunately, they lack proper training & technical know-how of their subject as even they as students have been exposed to incorrect form of learning. This is an initiative taken by Aparna Ji, to promote the purest form of Indian classical performing art to the existing generation, where she personally trains teachers who are teaching classical art forms in small/big schools or take private tutions.

Under her guidance these teachers learn the correct format & content of their subjects. Students learning under them can appear for yearly exams through kala Saadhna centers (under Pracheen kala kendra curriculam) to ensure & encourage authentic learning .


Aparna Mishra, with years of her counselling experience and tremendous success, has designed this program for people with personal crisis, stress, depression, anxiety, mood swings & guilt.

“PathFinder” is a unique 3-year program, conceptualised and thoughtfully designed by Kathak Guru Aparna Mishra, for early year school kids starting at an early age of 3- 3.5 years until 6 years.

We gently expose the child in a fun learning way to various Art, dance & music forms. The course structure covers – mythological stories, Cultural activities, exposure to musical instruments & classical music, painting, classical dance & body movements and many more such activities that helps the child develop certain basic skills. It further helps the Parents & children to realise the talent & interest in a particular art form. By the time they turn 6, they are ready to pursue one of them further as a full-time hobby / professional course.

This structure is more of an Indian “Culture Training Program” (CTP) and brings out a detailed analysis of the Childs growth (learning), talent & interest based on which the child can wisely choose an ECA (extracurricular activity).
