A riot of colour, a frenzy of music and dance, high melodrama taking centre stage, in a typical Hindi film scenario and a growing infectuous interest in Bollywood films are the creation, vision, heart and soul of Kamala Shakti, Founder and Artistic Director of Padma, Dance India Style, the first and leading professional dance school for Classical and Bollywood dance classes in Australia, based in Brisbane and Shantiji, Artistic Director of Bollywood Australia on the Gold Coast.
Increasingly popular, Bollywood dances are the hottest dances around. Classes are so exhilarating and so much fun that you forget you are actually working out. You will learn to dance like the top stars of India, starting with basic steps and building to energetic dance moves to help you stay fit, discover the source of joy and movement within, and even melt away those extra kilos. These dances are a fusion of traditional and classical Indian dances, influenced by jazz, hip-hop, and modern dance and require a balance of core strength and fluidity. You’ll experience all the ingredients of Bollywood dancing, including timing, rhythm, energy, and sharply controlled expressive movements. The Bollywood and international rhythms and catchy drumbeats will get your hips shaking, your arms moving, and your feet stomping. Bollywood dance encourages movement of all parts of the body. It is great fun, a good workout, and a sure way to relieve stress.
