Bollywood Dance Fitness Exercise Classes at Newton Abbot, Dawlish and TeignmouthBollywood dance fitness is an expressive form of movement based around the glitzy, glamorous Bollywood Indian film industry movies. It is set to the music from the Bollywood movies and r and b versions of Bhangra tunes. It’s tongue in cheek and lots of fun. Classes are adaptable to suit all levels and abilities for participants wanting a low impact workout (The Indian dance hand gestures used are great for people with arthritic conditions in the hands and wrists) and also for those who prefer a higher impact, more energetic workout.

What to expect

Bollywood dancing can be challenging to pick up at first and is not for the faint-hearted. However, its fast-paced energy is well worth some initial effort and hard work. Although teaching styles vary, early lessons may feature a range of musical accompaniments, from Bollywood film songs to R ‘n’ B and remixes of traditional Bhangra folk songs. Classes generally start with some slower warm-up routines but often burst into life at short notice. Be prepared for anything and make sure you have plenty of energy before you begin.

When starting out in Bollywood dancing, you may be concerned about embracing a different type of class, which you have no previous experience of. Fear not, though. Bollywood classes are designed for everyone and feature a wide range of people from all age groups and ability levels. When it comes to clothing, please don’t feel the need to wear anything too elaborate; jogging bottoms and a t-shirt will do it.
