Rachana Natyalaya selects students after careful consideration based on their interest towards dance and respect to the culture, and almost all are students pursuing general education in schools and colleges.

Rachana Natyalaya gives more importance to cater individual attention by limiting the number of students in every batch. The teaching and learning ambience is friendly but the training is systematic and disciplined.

In addition to learning dance students are encouraged to learn to do their own makeup and design their costumes, stage behavior, self-respect and lot of other things which will increase confidence and interest in a pupil.   The students are clearly taught the background and meanings of each dance composition they learn, this helps them to understand and perform the items in a better way.
