"Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion." ~ Martha Graham
Dance is for everyone, all ages, shapes and sizes. Come along and join in the fun at our beautiful Southport studio. Dance like no one is watching...or like the Bollywood stars in the movies. The choice is yours.
Bharat Natyam, classical dancing, is an ancient style of dance, more than 2000 years old, from South India with sharp footwork and mudras..
Increasingly popular, Bollywood dances are the hottest dances around. From the glamour and colourful costumes (sequins, bling, shawls, skirts, harem pants, sarees, colour!) of Bollywood movies, the dance is contemporary, informal, vibrant, colourful, exhilarating and so much fun with its emphasis on the musicality, beat, catchiness and storytelling:
celebratory, seductive, sad, a love song, various songs for different occasions.
For some people, it's a fun form of exercise, and even people with two left feet can still learn and have fun. It's a great workout for the brain, because you have to remember the steps ... and it's a great way to remain active.
For others, the appeal is in learning the dances themselves, which include a range or dance gendres ranging from the classical kathak, to hip-hop, and Bollywood zumba.
Students perform regular concerts for charity, community projects, Bollywood themed occassions, such as weddings, birthdays, hen's classes, work functions, parties and would love to share their joy more widely. Among the highlights over the years have been Bollywood Australia's involvement in the far north Queensland aboriginal community, various cultural concerts and working in a movie or two.
Classes: 4 x 9 week terms in a year.
