The company is planning a diverse set of programs for next year, so you might want to check out what they have to offer over January till March. Wanna learn how to dance Bollywood? Boleh. Got spare time to dabble in the arts and want firsthand lessons from Sabera herself? Pun boleh. Really, have a look!
