What is Bollywood dancing?

Bollywood dance is about storytelling. The songs are from the movies and are there for a particular reason- for example, a celebration song, a seduction song, a love song, a song of sadness. So when you dance it out, you are dancing to the words and mood. Different song s are used at different occasions.. there are tons of wedding songs, which you will hear being played at every Indian wedding.

Who can do it?

Anyone can do Bollywood dance. As it is a fusion, there are a lot of steps which are quite universal, then we just add in the Bollywood touch of Indian hands or the eyes. At the beginner level, it is a very simple dance style to learn.

What are the benefits?

Bollywood dance makes you laugh. It is definitely the most fun way to get fit. It also allows you a moment to escape into a fantasy land and be as emotional, energetic and cheesy as you want to be, with no apologies.
