What is Bollywood Dance?

Bollywood is a stylized freestyle dance form based on moves used in the Indian/Bollywood films. It’s energetic, lyrical and aerobic, modeled on classical and folk dance forms (Bhangra, Raas, Kathak, and Lavani), and influenced by Western hip hop. You will learn short choreography of about a minute or two each week (4 dances in a month). We will also email a video of the dance, and the music, so you can dance anytime you are bored! In short, it’s way too much FUN! Learn Bollywood dance in a fun and friendly environment!


Divya Maiya began teaching Bollywood workshops at Tapestry this summer. She’s also taught for Zenon Dance Company and Four Season Dance Studio in Minneapolis.

Jinal Vakil completed elementary training at Shiamak Davar institute of performing arts (school for bollywood dance) in Mumbai, India. She choreographed and performed at group dancing competitions at the intercollegiate level, and did a group dance performance on a folk song in the annual bollywood concert choreographed by Abhishek Zaveri, in Mumbai.
