Why Choose Ajna?

Kajal P. October 14, 2017

My daughter did 2 semesters with Ajna and her dancing blossomed. Before she started with Ajna, she wasn't precise and deliberate about her moves, as confident, and creative. This has all changed. She just performed with my niece at my cousin's wedding in California. She had confidence and poise. Thank you so much for your approach -- I truly think this has made a difference. If I still lived there, I would be taking one of the adult classes!

I've taken classes with Ajna for a few years. My dancing has improved and the classes are fun yet challenging. Highly recommend it!

I worked with Ajna on dance choreography for my wedding, our instructor Veena was amazingly sweet and patient and did a great job getting my fiancé, brother his girlfriend and I ready for an amazing performance. I would definitely recommend working with Ajna. Veena was able to be flexible to our changing ideas and rush videos when we needed them. Thanks Veena!
