I agree with all negative reviews, Arya is unprofessional, doesn't organize event very well and doesn't follow its own policy. Arya is charging $19 per hour and as per policy Christmas break was suppose to be from 23-Dec, but the Christmas break was taken on 15-Dec only.
Arya charges for 4 classes a month and as Dec they conducted only 3 classes, they were NOT ready to REFUND or CREDIT 1 class fees. Don't join during Sep to Dec time period, as you will be paying for those OFF days (Thanksgiving, Christmas etc). Choreographer are good, but as its solely for business purpose, they will take any number of students in a batch. They don't group kids as per their expertize level.
Gala do allow kids to perform on stage, but they again ask parents to buy tickets for it. Arya conducts ABDC competition in Jun and informs parents it will telecast on Zee. 2016 ABDC was on Zee tv in Aug 2017. Not sure, if 2017 ABDC will be telecast in 2018.
For this too, parents have to purchase expensive tickets, no food arrangements, kids are in costume since morning 7 am and they got to perform at 9 pm night. Arya takes its own break during shoot.
Arya is here just to extract money from parents on the pretext of teaching DANCE to kids. It just waste of time & money.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Monetary Loss: $1000.
Preferred solution: Action against company not following its own policy.
I didn't like: Overall company.
