What is Bollywood Dance?
Bollywood is the term used to describe the Indian Film industry which in the 70's, overtook Hollywood as the largest film industry in the world. Over the years, Bollywood dance has evolved to bring together the best of the East and West incorporating elements of classical Indian dances, traditional folk dances and Western dance styles including jazz, hip hop, contemporary, afro jazz, salsa, bellydance and even crump!
Every movement and gesture has a meaning. The whole body is used to express - right from the toes to the very tips of the fingers and everything in between! Bollywood dance is incomplete without the performance experience! Over the course of each term, we learn a medley of dances (usually about a minute each of 2-3 songs) with the intention of sharing the dance with friends and family at the end of the term.
