Class Description

BollyBhangra is a high energy and fusion based dance class combining folk elements of Bhangra, which originates from the Northern region of Pakistan/ India and combining it with the many flavours of Bollywood Dance and what makes it so infectious. In this hour-long drop-in session; you can get into shape, try out a new dance style, learn more about the Asian culture, all amidst a fun/ high energy workout and some great banter!

The class is welcoming to all levels and a perfect introduction to those wanting to learn Bhangra or Bollywood for the first time or simply wanting to have a great time. It’s a great way to perhaps spice up a date night, learn some moves for an Indian wedding you are about to go to/have,  or even just have some fun and let loose after a hectic day of work.
