Bollywood Dance is the essence of Indian Bollywood films that has – until today – retained the flavour of musicals! Constantly influenced by the changing trends, Bollywood Dance culture borrows a little from both traditional and western pop dance culture! It is a celebration of life, hence upbeat and high impact burning up to 500 calories an hour!
It deals with the complexities of the traditional Kathak footwork and Mudras (hand gestures) along with some groovy folkdance 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 – some may call them face contortions). So, if you are looking for some drama in your life, this is the class to be!
We also explore the world of Mujra – the controversial sensual dance of the tragic courtesan of the 1970ies and last but not least, we 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, glistening 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!
Terence will also lead workshops in the frame of Country Retreats in late September!
