This will be a fun, eye-opening and invigorating class for all!

This is a fun, high energy class inspired by the dancing seen in Indian films. Bollywood is a unique style that combines traditional Indian folk and classical dance with jazz, hip hop, and belly dance. The dancing, much like the music, will be energetic and lively! Students will learn intricate footwork, mudras (hand gestures), and head and eye movement in addition to technique and choreography. Students will learn the basics in a positive and fun atmosphere.
