Classic Music/Dance Academies in Chennai
Whatever be the modern westernization in Chennai, the classic Bharatanatyam and Carnatic Music always eternally has a great tale to tell us and shoulder to share regarding a great peace of mind Whilst commuting from Tambaram to Guindy sometime on Sunday, I observed a dance academy in Pallikaranai teaching Bharatanatyam. It is called Kalaalaya. You can find more details of the academy from their website here.
At this juncture, I would also like to recall that there is one more famous school for classical dance and music in Chennai put up near Besant Nagar. It is called 'Kalakshetra'. You can find more details about them over here.
I just thought I would share these with other readers so that from this new year, we can have our kids enrolled in these academies as extra-curricular activities (other than regular school) which would improve their softskills greatly.

I and my wife were in Chennai in 2008 (we're from Russia). We wanted to attain some Indian classical music performance but didn't find where they are going.
We even came to the Music Academy (on the bank of the river in the south of Chennai as far as I remember). But the Director of this Academy told us that we should find any announcements in newspapers. In the newspapers I didn't find any announcements.
But we visited many Vaishnava Temples and places which was excellent achievement for this trip!
