Bollywood dance is a commercial name for modern Indian dance. It’s a style that combines Indian folk and classical dance features with Jazz, Hip- Hop, Latin, Arabian etc. This is what makes it so appealing to a wider audience… so much so that it has been given a spot on the famous show, So You Think You Can Dance.
During the activity, campers will learn the basics of rhythm, movement, grace, posture and expression unique to Indian dance. They will perform the choreographies learned at the end of the session in a small showcase. Parents and family will be invited to support and encourage all their efforts during the showcase which will be performed in full Bollywood costume. Students are asked to wear comfortable clothing to class. Indian dances are traditionally performed barefoot. Socks are to be avoided to prevent slipping. Campers will have a great workout during each class while learning about another culture and its civilization. They will experience firsthand the evolution of Bollywood dance as it has transformed and embedded itself into the hip culture.
