Let us ask you a question? Do you like dancing? And what dance types do you know? Before we tell you anything further let's tell you that here we are featuring some of the Best Dance Academies in Kathmandu Nepal and therefore we are talking all about dance and dance academies in Kathmandu Nepal. So let's get started.

Before we start, let's quickly define what dance is and what it's all about. So Dance is an art that requires intentional and sequenced human body movement and is mostly done over music and songs.

Dance can be symbolic in form and can be used to represent a particular culture. Dance is also used in a symbolic form to represent history for certain groups of people and their practices, art, lifestyle, music, songs, etc. Thus, it's clear that they are several forms or types of dance, used at different times and places so let's get into the types of dance.

Types of Dance

1.    Swing dance, examples are Modern Jive, Balboa etc.
2.    Traditional
3.    Classical dance
4.    Experimental/freestyle
5.    Disco/electronic
6.    Historical
7.    Folk dance and others

You can get dance training over any of the above dance in several dance academies in Nepal, which we'll discuss later in this article soon.

Dance as a Career in Nepal

We'd first like to ask you if you know anyone who is a dancer. Anyone who is a dancer by profession and earns from it knows the struggle to become one, especially in Nepal. One needs to have proper dance skills, good connection and requires exposure to reach a point where you can earn well as a dancer.
Talking about the job prospects of a dancing professional, he/she can be a dancer itself, a dance teacher, a choreographer, a dance teacher or trainer, dance therapist, and so on. Truth to be told, all these professions seem quite vacant when we see the number of people involved in them and making good money out of them.

Whereas on the positive sides, dance as a career slowly seems to grow in Nepal. Dancers now are getting opportunities as well as good exposure in the industry via several dance shows and events happening in the country.

Similarly, a person who knows professional dancing can also teach others becoming a professional dance trainer and a self-employer him/herself.
Again, if we talk about the salary a dancer earns, then they've started making a good amount of money via dance shows, sponsors and show on. We know that dance is a part of the entertainment industry so there is no skeptical that the profession earns more for a person, all he/she needs is good dancing skills to show and entertain others.

Now we hope that you've pretty much understood about dance, and especially dance as a career in Nepal. We believe this list of best dance academies in Kathmandu valley will be useful to anyone who aspires to learn dancing and be a dancer. Also, we believe that this article will be useful for others who have never dreamt to be a dancer before reading this article. So, let's get into the list.
