Have you ever wanted to try dancing – Bollywood style? 


We will be starting fresh with a new series at our new home, Dance with Joy Studios!

Bollywood Level 1 – 7:30pm-8:30pm

This Bollywood dance class is ideal for all ages & all levels. During the first part of class, we will learn the basic moves of Bollywood & in the second half we will put them together in a simple, playful choreography. After learning a full song, students may have the opportunity to perform at our monthly Jai Ho! Dance Party events & other cultural events around the city.

Bollywood Level 2 – 8:30pm-9:30pm

This dance class is ideal for teenagers & above with prior dance experience with DJ Prashant. All new students should start at the level 1 class & talk to Prashant before joining level 2. We will progress briskly each week to learn new moves & perform regularly at Jai Ho! dance parties & other cultural events.

Classes are typically held every Wednesday evening at 7:30pm at Dance With Joy Studios. Both classes will have an opportunity (not required) to perform at our monthly Jai Ho! Dance Party & other cultural events.
