Bollywood Rhythms' choreographer-in-chief Bhagya Nagesh gleefully instructs students in flashy, fun-filled Bollywood dance, which combines Bhangra, Classical Indian, Arabic, and Indian folk styles. Nagesh has coached more than 2,000 dance enthusiasts since she opened the studio in 2006, helping each of her students to gain confidence, get fitter, and learn to harness the telepathic powers necessary for maneuvering massive crowd-song set pieces. Participants do not require any prior experience, and each session begins with warm-ups and isolations to ensure a smooth transition to practicing individual steps and incorporating them into routines. Nagesh encourages students to accessorize their class dancewear with scarves, bindis, or bangles, though attire should be chosen for mobility, explaining the ancient Indian custom of dancing only while wearing a tracksuit. Nagesh loves working with children, and her culturally enlightening classes welcome toddlers as young as 3, the age when children are most likely to pick up bad habits like the macarena.
