What You’ll Do
During a 90-minute workshop, instructor Akhila Damerla breaks the expressive dances of Bollywood and Bhangra down into easy-to-learn components. She starts by teaching basic dance steps, then adds hand movements, and finally, facial expressions. Two water breaks keep students refreshed.
Master Basic Bollywood and Bhangra Steps
Akhila introduces foundational footwork before gradually leading participants through a complete piece.
Learn a Custom Dance Routine
Each routine is tailored to suit the energy and ability of the group.
Though the class is centered around choreography, Akhila emphasizes individual creativity to bring out the best from each of her students.
Akhila Damerla wants her students to leave dance classes with a smile, still humming the music and practicing the steps as they go. Her sessions focus on the fun found in Bollywood routines, as well as the grace of more traditional forms such as Bhangra and Kuchipudi, in which she trained for six years. When Akhila isn’t leading dance parties for adults, she often teaches Bollywood aerobics workouts and workshops for children.
