Bollywood Dance 

bollywood

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!
