Bollywood is the film industry of India in Hindi language and is based in Mumbai, India. Bollywood dances are created based on the songs that are a part of any Bollywood movie. It is a colorful mixture of Indian folk dances, Indian Classical dances, western dances and some freestyle movements that are created depending on the genre/feel of the song. Bollywood songs are full of drama, expressions, energy and larger than life movements.
In my workshops/ classes, I start with the basic movements of Bollywood that have been there in the industry for many years. I also work on the coordination of all body parts working together at the same time along with the facial expressions. Its a beautiful experience to learn Bollywood dance as it creates body awareness and brings joy in people’s lives.
