AIM AND GOAL
Our foundational aim and goal to achieve with the students at Umdali Visual & Performing Arts are to develop them by using an individual approach:

1. Focus on the individual student
Training them step-by-step monitoring their progress

2. Individual artists in training also should have purpose and goals
Keeping this in mind, we aim to deliver a product through our training in which we will cultivate this specific principle to our students to strive to become confident and purpose driven artists; who will learn to use their instruments, to dance and create an artwork not only to show skill but also to start carrying an inner conviction and desire to influence with their God-given talents and to become a positive voice to their surrounding environments
