Description

Bollywood Fusion is the overarching term for dancing to music in any South Asian language, but is most associated with soundtracks from Hindi cinema. It showcases traditional folk and classical Indian dance forms, and explores how they have evolved over time, at times incorporating flair from other styles such as jazz and hip hop.

Class entails a brief warm up, followed by learning choreography. Music ranges from classic Bollywood to modern, upbeat Hindi and Punjabi songs – but inspiration can take us anywhere! We’ll explore where Indian folk meets other global styles, emphasizing hand movements, footwork and facial expressions. Classes may emphasize springy footwork and bold arms inspired by Bhangra, or swift hand movements and soulful expressions inspired by Kathak or Bharatanatyam. Any combination of these elements is possible!

Everyone and all levels are welcome! Come learn something new in a fun, judgement free zone and leave feeling energized!
