The Indian film industry is one of the most productive in the world, with more than 800 productions a year. Bollywood is a word creation from B (ombay) + (H) ollywood, which stands for mostly magnificently equipped, emotionally charged films.
A special feature of Bollywood cinema are elaborate dance and singing performances with dreamy costumes and lively music - often for dozens of dancers.
This life-affirming dance style - the Bollywood dance - inspired Tatjana Wegner to her concept BollyDance © - a mixture (masala) of Indian temple dance, jazz / modern dance, oriental dance, bhangra beat and hip hop - to music that simply goes into your blood.
This course teaches choreographies that are typical of the song-and-dance scenes in Bollywood films. We start with a warm up to the music and work our way up in the bolly warm up (mix of different songs and rhythms). Then you will learn something about mudras (gestures of the fingers and hands), adavus (foot positions) and typical poses. Then we learn choreographies for popular Bollywood songs.
Please bring comfortable and colorful things with you. It is mostly danced barefoot. Bindis, towels and other utensils are provided for the course. It would be nice if you've already dealt with the topic a bit.
