Bollywood dance taster session in Bradley Stoke

Bollywood dance.

The South Gloucestershire Asian Project (SGAP) has been asked to feature Bollywood dance performances at this year’s Bradley Stoke Community Festival, which will take place on 4th June. In order to bring the acts together to prepare, SGAP will be holding a free taster session for Women’s Bollywood Dance classes, on Saturday 9th April from 11.30 to 1pm at Brook Way Activity Centre. This will then be followed by eight practice sessions before the main performance in June. The choreographer is Garima Verma and the cost of the eight sessions will be £35.

Bollywood, the term used for the Indian film industry based in the city of Mumbai, is increasingly featured in western media for its vibrant colours, intriguing plots, glamorous actors and enticing dance performances. Unlike Indian classical dances such as Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi, Bollywood dance integrates more contemporary dance moves such as hip hop, which are interwoven with  traditional Indian dance moves and expressions. Each part of India has its own distinct dance, whereas Bollywood breaks all such distinctions by combining a range of dance forms.

SGAP has organised many Indian cultural events in the area over the years, and has brought the community together for festival celebrations during Diwali and Holi. With a diverse range of talents within the Bradley Stoke area, it is hoped that those with a flair for dance and  enthusiasm for Bollywood  will drop by on Saturday to get involved in this year’s performance.
