Testimonials

What they say about us

I am very pleased to write about our experience with Swara, Deepika and their Toddle Feet team. Firstly, being a mom who is tuned into her child, Swara KNOWS children and she KNOWS moms ergo she knows how important an AGE appropriate curriculum is.

Roshani Sanghani (Consultant Endocrinologist at Hinduja Hospital)   

As a mother and a dancer myself I can say that there is no greater joy than your child loving dance and music! Now our weeks are defined by Mondays and Tuesdays (dance class days) rather than the weekends!

Purvi Bajaj (Senior Manager Solutions)   

The Toddle Feet program is a well devised curriculum and I am glad that my child has the opportunity to learn dance at an institute which actually sees teaching dance as a serious effort, requiring a research based curriculum that has been well executed.

Falguni Shah     

RHF's curriculum designed for toddlers uses simple songs that a child can easily understand thereby helping them to relate it to their movements. The emphasis on technique increases their overall flexibility, develops motor skills and at the same time brings grace into their dance.
My daughter always returns with a smile on her face and looks forward to the next class!

Pooja Randery (Home maker)    

I was introduced to RHF practically at its birth; a little home-based studio located close to my own home, made it safe and convenient for my little 3 year old, at the time. But as I watched her progress, I observed key developments that made me sit up and take notice. Eg. at a party, while a typical 3 yr old jumped to the music, my lil girl 'danced'!

She began choreographing little routines of her own and amazingly enough, switching from one genre to another, depending on the music being played. Her flexibility increased along with her passion for dance and it has now reached a point where I just can't stop her feet from tapping, no matter what she's doing.

Physical strength – Flexibility, endurance and strength
Mental ability – Sense of music & rhythm, creativity, balance and coordination,
Social skills – Confidence, appreciation and team work.

An appropriate mix of the above is not just aimed at providing your child superior dance education but will help them “Dream with their Feet”.

Development of 4 key aspects of dance training, are in consideration while teaching:

Dancing - Ability to dance confidently and without inhibitions
Dance appreciation – Inculcate the love for dancing and appreciate dance performances.
Dance making – Understand the method and meaning towards creating dance performances and the ability to create new dance sequences.
Dance technique - Right and safe way to train.

1. Fundamentals of RHF-TC
RHF-Toddle Curriculum is based on four fundamentals:

• Age appropriate teaching:- music, syllabus and approach
• Structure:- which leads to gradual progression
• Variety:- To keep it exciting fun and challenging
• Repetition:- A must to build muscle memory and confidence.

Creative Movement (3-6 years)

Creative Movement is a joyful way for children to explore movement through music, develop physical skills, channel energy, stimulate imagination and promote creativity. Creative movement uses body actions to: communicate an image (the wind), communicate an idea (a journey) or communicate a feeling (strength). Through movement, children learn about their bodies, the space around them, and each other. Creative movement activities should encourage all children to participate.

Our creative movement program comprises of a licensed curriculum from US which has songs specially composed for this age. Concept bases songs on tree growing, miles of smile, freeze game.

At RhythmusHappyFeet, we teach dance to these little ones using games, age appropriate music, props, stories, pretend and play etc. These classes include, understanding of rhythm, developing motor skills, co-ordination, flexibility, understanding dance concept, knowing dance vocabulary, positive thinking and much more. It is a wonderful way for the young munchkins to understand themselves and see connections with the rest of the world.

Hip Hop (5 & above)

Hip-hop refers to street dance style primarily performed to hip-hop music. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping and were made popular by dance crews in the United States. Hip Hop is primarily popular with the teenagers due to the influence the music channels have on them. Today’s youth is largely fascinated by the Hip Hop style of dancing since it includes an extensive range of brisk moves. The energy that the dance form brings allows them to express themselves freely.

The student of Hip Hop does not only learn the dance form but also get his/her muscles toned. It naturally helps their body to move with ease. This sort of dancing helps one maintain the innate elasticity of the body, re-affirming the enormous benefits it offers.

Apart from the vast benefits, Hip Hop, most importantly rejuvenates the students and entertains them in the true sense. However, these sessions prove to be a place where these children/teens may identify for themselves where their interest lies. Our faculty’s profound understanding of each of their students’ persona makes Rhythmus Happy Feet a special place. Here, students do not only learn how to dance but build for them a special bond that is evident from their interactions with their teachers. The class timings are mentioned below. Dial in and join us now!

Funk Jazz (8 & above)

Jazz-funk is a sub-genre of jazz and is in the main represented by a strong drum beat augmented by a driving bass line resulting in the music being termed as a groove. Jazz-Funk is a mix of a variety of dance forms ranging from ballet to hip hop. It certainly is the most expressive form of dancing that co-ordinates mind as well as the body of the person performing it.

Jazz-Funk happens to be an intense, yet enjoyable dance form. Simple, tailor-made steps make learning undemanding. For these classes, the main aim is to help the students realize their dream for dance through the most elegant form.

At Rhythmus Happy Feet, our achievement lies in making dance education an amusing and fulfilling experience. Our trained staff ensures the students have fun with their new routines every month and also allow the students to connect with themselves deeply. Get in touch with us to know more about Funk Jazz classes.

Ballet (5 & above)

This class is an introduction for the young toddlers to the Western Classical Dance ‘Ballet’. Ballet involves a lot of technique that builds ones posture, strength, flexibility and grace. And thus demands a lot of discipline. But in RHF, we nurture our young ones with the right amount of discipline and make sure the kids enjoy our class. Technique is thus fed to them by the way and our songs help them learn ballet terminology effortlessly. This class is all about being a beautiful princess and walking down an aisle or dancing around like a fairy of their dreams. Don’t forget to wear your princess charm?

Beginners Ballet (7 and above)

Ballet technique is considered to be the basis of training for all types of dance.Ballet is the art of dance requiring strength, resilience, elegance and grace all at once. It may be difficult to master and takes lots of patience and practice to learn. Girls who study ballet develop strong bodies, spatial and temporal awareness, and improve their coordination.

Certified Ballet

The amount of energy needed to perform a ballet is about the same as playing two full football matches or running 18 miles”. Well, Ballet is one such dance form that does not only assist one in expressing themselves but it also helps in staying fit. Ballet experts have at all times reported of experiencing total ecstasy. This particular dance form helps one to be in absolute control of their body and the immense flexibility that it gives your body is commendable.

Apart from flexibility and fitness, we concentrate on the most significant part, fun for kids! After the frantic schedule at school and tuitions, Rhythmus Happy Feet proves to be a pleasant place. Here, kids master the most classic dance form, in the most proficient manner!

The students of the Ballet Certification Course are trained by our very own Ballet Trained Teachers. These teachers are the ones who are directly under the tutelage of “Butch Godito, Director of BRAI(Ballet Repertory Academy International) and PADCI (Professional and Amateurs Dances Club International”. Worth mentioning is that, at the end of the term, these students will be examined by an international examiner under the Vagnova system.

Ballet is a classic dance form that requires the body to have total focus but at the same time, this dance form can be mastered only by those who find it the most interesting thing to do. We understand the child’s curiosity and channelize their energy accordingly, transforming them into confident individuals. Being able to realize the passion for dancing within them at such young age truly contributes to a good amount of contentment in the life of a child.

Zumba (Adults)

Zumba was created by Alberto “Beto” Perez, an aerobics instructor in Cali, Colombia, when he forgot his workout music for a class. He improvised with some salsa and merengue tapes he happened to have in his backpack, and the class was an instant hit! Creation of this humble dance form was that simple. It is nothing but a mix of dance and exercise. When you experience these sessions, you shall agree that they seem to be more like a dance party than a workout session.

Dance In Education (for Schools)

Schools like yours are constantly looking at stimulating and building motor skills as you understand how crucial physical activity is for children in the growing years. Dance being a popular stimulus which adds value and fun is currently being incorporated into school curriculums as an essential part of child development. The challenge faced by schools, however, is to have age appropriate music and an approach which syncs with the school's philosophy and not just have their students jumping to Bollywood and western tunes, the lyrics and moves of which do not gel with a good school's approach towards education.

We at RhythmusHappyFeet understand this whole heartedly and believe in giving quality and wholesome dance education which not only is age appropriate and enhances motor skills but in addition brings self confidence, self expression, kinesthetic learning, as well as the rare advantage of developing both sides of the brain simultaneously.

Swara Patel

An MBA from MET Bandra, I decided to follow my dream of dancing, undergoing an intense training in Jazz for two years. I strongly believe that doing what you are passionate about can renew lives just as dance has transformed mine.
A passionate dancer and entrepreneur, I was inspired to start Rhythmus HappyFeet Dance Academy in 2011 along with my partner Deepika Ravindran and in just 3 years we now work at four centres and have successfully reached the milestone of introducing a Certified Ballet Curriculum in the Vaganova technique, the first of its kind in Mumbai. I have been in the top 20 chosen from all over India in the show `Dance India Dance - Super MOM' ( A popular dance reality show on Zee TV) and have performed along with my team at prestigious events like Kalaghoda, Car Free day as well as our own annual show 'Dancing Dreams'.

Deepika Ravindran

I completed 7 years of training and completed the Arangetram (Masters of Dance) in Bharat Natyam. Post graduation, I followed my heart and signed up to train in various western dance forms including Street Jazz, Contemporary, Ballet and Modern Dance styles. During my intensive training I met a fellow dance enthusiast Swara Patel and together we decided to start a venture that focused on modern dance education for children. The venture was named Rhythmus Happyfeet and we opened our doors to the public in June 2011. Three years hence, Rhythmus Happyfeet has 4 centres in Mumbai with 10 teachers and over 300 students being actively trained. We have performed at numerous popular dance events including the prestigious Kala Ghoda Arts Festival and have, over the years, trained more than 900 students.

Priya Colaco

I began dancing at the age of 5 with the traditional dance forms of Manipuri and later Bharatnatyam and went on to complete my senior exam at the age of 14. Dance has always been a passion and a source of joy and self expression but I didn't dream I would actually make it my profession until I met Swara and Rhythmus HappyFeet! They quickly embraced my abilities and nurtured my love into what it is today. I began training with RHF in August 2012, earned my Zumba Instructor Certification in February 2013, completed my ToddleFeet Dance Educator training in March of the same year and haven't looked back since! As a team we are technically trained and updated in genres like Contemporary, Hip Hop and Funk Jazz and our skill constantly challenged and enhanced. I have also consistently worked on my strength through weight and circuit training and other high intensity workouts including boot camp, over a period of 13 years. This has been complimentary to the Zumba fitness requirements as well as to the needs of a dancer to be strong. Dancing is now part of every minute of my day and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Shivani Gawde

I trained in Jazz for a period of 5 years under various prestigious academies, completed basic Ballet training with Ballet Master Butch Godito, trained in contemporary and basic Kathak. I have attended advanced training workshops with the likes of Micheal Thomas, Alvin Ailey, Raymond, etc. and learned the traditional dance form of Bharatnatyam during my school days.

I love teaching more than anything and the joy of inspiring others to be a part of the magic of dance is one of my driving forces!

Dance is an inseparable part of me and has mentored me into a better version of myself!

Ridisha Balani

I have been dancing for about 10 years in various styles like Bollywood, Jazz, Funk Jazz, Ballet and Contemporary and have received rigorous training as a probationer from the Danceworx, Mumbai, for 2 years. I now teach Funk Jazz to children (aged 9 -15years) at Rhythmus HappyFeet.

Chandani Marfatia

I have been dancing all my life and despite the fact that I did not receive formal dance training it continued to be a big part of me. This shared interest is what drew me to Rhythmus HappyFeet and eventually I completed the toddler teacher training program becoming a Dance Educator in Creative Movement for the age group 3 to 5 years.

Leena Shah

My dance story began at the age of 8 with 3 years of Bharatnatyam after which I moved on to Latin forms of dancing. I also taught regional Folk dances at OGC (Overall Growth Center) at Euro kids for 4 years. Interacting with toddlers brings me immense joy and dancing has been my passion which is why I decided to complete the toddler teacher training program at Rhythmus HappyFeet and have been a Dance Educator in Creative Movement with them ever since.

Hetal Nishar

Dance has always been my hobby. Started dancing at the tender age of 7 and since then there has been no looking back. Student of the special potential batch in Shiamak Davar and received trained for a year. Later moved, on to Danceworx Performiny arts academy for further exposure and training in new styles.

Dance FAQ's

 

+ MY child is 2 and half years old and he loves to dance. Can he join toddle feet i.e. the creative movement class?
​The age of admission to our courses start at 3. We aim to teach our students in a formal, structured and disciplined manner, and in our experience, children 3 years and above have shown remarkable progress in understanding and following the teachers. Even though your child is quite inclined to dance, as most children that age are, we advise you to wait a little longer and you would be pleasantly surprised with the results.​
+ Why do you start ballet at age 5 and not at 3 or 4? My daughter is very keen to learn ballet.
​​Children are very often fascinated by ballet due to what they see on television, in children's programmes and cartoons. But a child as young as 3 or 4 is still in a very early exploring and experimenting stage and is trying to understand his/her body, balance and coordination. Subjecting them to intense disciple of ballet with strict physical forms would end up boxing their creative and expressive growth. We recommend your daughter to start with our ToddleFeet class, which is specially designed for children of ages 3 to 5, to help them improve their motor skills and enhance their love for dance. She can then progress on to our pre-ballet class and later on obtain an international ballet certification through us.​
+ How long does a child take to learn a dance form?
As the old saying goes “ practise makes a man perfect”. It is true in case of dancing also. Training for a dance discipline has many similarities to academic and athletic training. Skills must be built incrementally, just like more time you devoted to study, higher the level of learning. For instance, if a child devotes only one hour per week to learning mathematics, it will take far longer to reach Algebra I than if that same child devotes one hour every day to studying mathematics. If the child studies year around instead of taking all summer off each year, they will be ready for Algebra I before most of their classmates. Children with a natural aptitude for mathematics will also achieve a higher skill level faster and with greater ease than some others. And no child, no matter how great the natural aptitude and talent, can master long division until they have mastered addition, subtraction, and multiplication.

The same holds true for dance; you must start at the beginning, attend classes faithfully, and work to master the skills as they are introduced. Each skill builds muscle memory and the proper bodily strength to take a student to the next, more difficult dance movement. This is a constant process over a number of years.
+ Which is a better dance form- Indian or western?
For us any dance form if learned systematically in depth gives similar results. What is more important is the quality of teachers and training. If a child learns any one dance form completely he or she can adopt to any dance form very easily.
+ If I do two different dance forms will I get confused?
You might get confused initially but in the longer run you will have a deeper understanding of your body and how it moves. So it is absolutely fine to learn two dance forms simultaneously.
+ How long does it take to graduate to the next level
It completely depends on the dancer. The amount of interest, effort and attendance put together will result in progress to the next level. The progress of every child is different and thus it absolutely depends on an individual. In general it takes atleast 1 year to cross a level.
+ Why choose dance over other physical activity?
  • -In dancing focus is on creativity and not on winning or losing.
  • -It involves using both sides of the brain- one side for balance, co-ordination and technique and other half for creativity.
  • -Only art form which encourages achild to express emotions freely through their body.
  • -Makes a child more confident.
+ I have two left feet and feel hopeless when I try to dance. Can you help me?
Absolutely. MOST people feel this way. With our experience, we have developed a style and a system of teaching that makes learning to dance absolutely effortless and fun. Many people have come to us with a fear of dancing, or the feeling that they had no rhythm, or they dreaded “two left feet”. We have managed to get this thought out of their mind and made them confident dancers.
