Dance School

Manmohini Indian Dance School was established by Mohini in 2009, currently it is the premier Kathak dance institution in Melbourne.

Our students not only achieve performing ability as a professional dancer but also receive Indian cultural education. They get trained in order to master each and every aspect of Kathak dance to be able to perform solo, duet and in a group.The limited number of students ensures individual attention to create encouraging and disciplined learning atmosphere.

The school presented first live Kathak Recital ‘Kathak Sandhya’ at Doncaster Secondary College performance centre on 20th September 2014. This concert received standing ovation from veteran artists as well as entire audience. This event has created long lasting impression of Kathak dance style in the Indian classical dance arena of Melbourne.

Since 2009, the dance school has been presenting regular annual concerts in very creative ways.
Manmohini Indian Dance school currently has 8 Branches in the suburbs of Melbourne, conducted by Mohini and her Senior students.
Also they perform throughout Victoria at different prestigious events.
