About Bollywood dance
The Indian film industry is more popularly known as Bollywood which is immensely popular for its song and dance sequences in its films. While earlier these songs and dances were much subtle and had a mix of folk dances in them, in recent times the Bollywood dances have become much more bold, glamorous and energetic in style. The dance moves are more skilful and groovy and there are various types of steps and mannerisms involved in the Bollywood style of dancing. This form of dance is becoming increasingly popular amongst beginners since it is easy to learn and is also entertaining. Classes start with a warm up session, followed by basic steps, practice and finally dancing to the actual songs.
Kids are easily attracted to this dance form which is popularized by television channels and through online or cell phone videos. There are various types of classes which are designed for beginners in Bollywood dancing. Some are meant for toddlers and children, while some are especially held for teenagers.
