Looking for drama?
Bollywood Dance is the handmaiden of Indian Bollywood films that has - until today - retained the flavour of musicals! Constantly influenced by the changing trends, Bollywood Dance culture borrows from both traditional and western pop culture in dance! It is a celebration of life, hence upbeat and high impact burning up to 500 calories an hour! (This workshop is surely not for the weak hearted
or weak knees)!
It deals with the complexities of the traditional Kathak footwork and Mudras (hand gestures) along with some groovy folk dance moves from across the countryside that will surely put you in a good mood! We will also unabashedly explore the wonderful world of Abhinaya (facial expression or for some face contortions). So if you are looking for some drama in your life, this is the class to be!
Next we explore the world of Mujra - the controversial sensual dance of the tragic courtesan of the 1970ies to finally move on to master the urban cool routines of the current chart busters!
A word of caution: the music is going to be loud and so are the students and yes we have a dress code: anything colourful flowing and happy! More the bling, more the zing... Exhibitionists, Voyeurs, Drags, Divas and people willing or wishing to strike it off their bucket list, are all welcome!
