A418: Intro to Bollywood (Indian Film) Dance in Splash 2019 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Hindi film dance, also known as Bollywood dance, is a style that draws from classical Indian dance, folk dance, hip hop, and Western dance. In this class, students will learn a one-minute piece to a song from an Indian movie. The moves will be simple and fun to allow students from all types of backgrounds and abilities to participate. After the class, you'll get a video of your performance, which you can continue to perfect and perform for your family and friends! Still not sure what Bollywood dance is? Check out "Chammak Challo", a Bollywood song/dance with vocals by Akon. This dance is representative of what we'll be learning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4EZHGFK-1c.
