Bollywood Dance and Culture


Bollywood is a fusion of traditional and classical Indian dances with the influence of some jazz, hip-hop and modern dance. It is a creative mixture of technique, energy and emotion but most of all massive fun. Students will learn poses, grace, hand and foot movements and expression, all integral parts of Bollywood dance. The meanings of the songs are explored, and students will be able to ‘dance and act’ them out.
