divya_maiya rashi_02 jinal

Bollywood is a stylized freestyle dance form based on moves used in the Indian/Bollywood films. It's energetic, lyrical and aerobic, modeled on classical and folk dance forms (Bhangra, Raas, Kathak, and Lavani), and influenced by Western hip hop. You will learn short choreography of about a minute or two each week (4 dances in a month). We will also email a video of the dance, and the music, so you can dance anytime you are bored! In short, it's way too much FUN! Learn Bollywood dance in a fun and friendly environment! Divya Maiya is back to teach at Tapestry and we're so glad to have her back. Divya will be teaching with new teachers Rashi Mangalick and Jinal Vakil. Click here to find out more about Bollywood dancing and the teachers. Divya, Rashi, & Jinal pictured above, respectively.

Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30pm

$8 general, $6 members, $5 students, free admission to kids 13 and under
