My kids are born in US and will continue to stay in US through their adulthood, I think. My daughter is interested in pursuing Indian classical dance. Already learning it past 3 yrs. she seems to be good at it as per her teacher. I came to know it is an expensive affair and most of girls have stopped it after arangetram as they wanted to highlight it as extra curricular achievement for college admission. my question is what is next after arangetram? Do kids in US get an arena to perform and take it to next level without compromising their college education/gpa, and possibly without impacting their mainstream career? I understand in India there are venues, especially Chennai is hub of cultural activities. But in US?? As most of know I am a single parent with DH out of country for almost an year. I am at a stage where I can talk her out of it if need arises. . But I want to self educate before I do that. I don’t have any classical background in our family or in our immediate friend circle. Closest I have is dance school moms, aiming in completing the arangetram for above said reason. appreciate inputs.
