What you'll learn in this bollywood dance class:

The Bollywood Fusion class is designed for students with prior dancing experience. They will learn traditional to contemporary, eastern to western, jazz to hip hop, graceful to high-energy moves fused with popular, feet tapping and/or soulful Bollywood tunes. Students will learn some new choreography every season. Classes will include warm-up sessions followed by choreography. Bollywood Dance is a mix of dance styles performed in Bollywood films, including traditional Indian styles of Bharatanatyam, Kathak, folk styles, and modern Jazz, Hip-Hop or Belly Dance. Jazz gives a dancer form and style while Bollywood allows you to experience and open up the body in a fun way. It’s not just a fitness class, it’s a dance class that makes you fit! This 60-minute class begins with a warm-up session that relies on the Jazz style of dance which employs structure and form to make sure the body is ready to take the next 30 minutes of high energy Bollywood dance routine and de-structure thereafter. The class helps you burn more than 500 calories a new routine to perform at the next party! Bollywood Dance originated from the Bollywood (Hindi) Movie Industry as a freestyle dance fused with elements from Indian classical and folk dance forms. It has been and still is a song and dance sequence with larger than life expressions communicated through different moves, grandiose sets, picturesque locations, and large ensembles.

In recent times, Bollywood Dance has expanded and emerged into a dance style of its own kind with a creative amalgamation. It carries forward the culture and tradition of India along with various different classical and folk dance forms fusing it further with elements from western dance forms like Jazz, Hip Hop, Latin and many other old (Rock n Roll / Twist / Etc.,) and modern dance forms making it an appealing dance regimen for all age groups and tastes. Bollywood music ranges from traditional to extremely modern & western and from soulful compositions to feet-tapping numbers. The soulful compositions make one want to get in touch with their emotions while the feet-tapping numbers exude the upbeat energy that India is so well known for, making one want to jive endlessly and get in touch with their inherent light and fun side.
