Graceful female movements, distinctive hand gestures and clear facial expressions illustrating the lyrics, rhythmic music and colorful costumes – this is the essence of Indian Bollywood dance.
During the classes you can expect a lot of energy and a smile. The technique greatly improves motor coordination, body awareness and general condition. Eyes, hands, hips and feet will dance as they stamp out the beat.
How to move your neck, how to arrange your hands, how to use your eye to make Indian dance inspiration look authentic? What techniques are behind the incredible grace of Indian dances?
Classes covering the technique of hand gestures, body poses, facial expressions and eye work used in Indian classical dance and theater. As well as tapping out rhythms with the feet, turns and the work of the hands.
