Bollywood Tunes

Ever imagined pulling off a jazz routine to Chikni Chameli? Or even better, weaving the moonwalk into Ek Do Teen... Aparnaa Nagesh, choreographer and creative director of High Kicks, tells us that her Bollywood-inspired weekend workshop series over the next two days will redefine how one shakes to B’town in one class. “I like switching the regular variables in a routine,” she explains. So the all girl dance group, instead of tutoring participants on Bollywood moves, will instead be showing them contemporary steps to put in sync with their favourite B’town hits.

With four styles — Bollywood Contemporary, Bollywood Street Jazz, Bollywood Heels and Bollywood Masala — lined up, batches of 20 participants each, are planned for each class.

If you’ve done a dance workshop before, then you probably already know to wear loose fitted clothing that is comfortable and allows you to stretch and jump. “That means no jeans and no skirts,” Aparnaa says with a laugh. As for those who would like to really doll up for the theme with jhumkis and anklets, she adds, “If you want to dress to your Bollywood best, feel free to go ahead!”

The Weekend Workshop Series - The Bollywood Chapter will be held on July 11 and 12, at Studio 360, No 8 Victor Evelyn Heritage (4th floor) Thiruveedian Street, Gopalpuram. Contact 9940087710/ 9840317186.
