This high energy Bollywood class is a fusion of traditional Bollywood fast beat rhythm with movement that is full of grace, bliss and joy. Class begins with slow, warm-up music with classical hand gestures, head movements and stretching of the whole body. Then we will slowly move to faster beats with hip and shoulder shaking, hopping, clapping and fast feet taping rhythm. We round out class with a short except of classical Bollywood choreography.
