Bollywood dance originated in India in the 20th century and is prominently featured in many Indian films, famous for its colourful, dynamic, and highly theatrical style. The workshop will draw on moves used in commercial choreography for Bollywood movies to provide a fun and accessible foray into the genre.
Jyoti began dancing at the age of 4, inspired by her mom who is a classical dancer and continued to specialize in the semi-classical and Indian folk-dance forms of Bollywood dancing. She has performed at a variety of festivals and has been teaching for the last 15 years. Three years ago, she opened her own dance studio and began choreographing routines for birthday parties and anniversaries.
You do not need a partner for this workshop. The workshop will be friendly to all ages/levels with something for everyone. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing you can easily move in and flat soled shoes or sneakers for the workshop component.
After the workshop we will have a Salsa, Bachata, and Kizomba (SBK) afterparty. Join us for a fun dance night at this beautiful venue! 💃🏼🌮🕺
