This is only possible by a professional person who knew Indian dance thoroughly.

What is Bollywood?

Bollywood dance comes from the movies of the Bollywood industry located in Mumbai, India.

This internationally known dance is a fusion of various elements of Indian classical dance, country folk dances and modern dances such as hip hop and Latin dances. What results is a very fun, exotic and energetic fusion that makes anyone dance. The curious thing about this dance is that anyone can dance it because there are choreographies of various levels of complexity.

Generally, the costumes are usually very exotic and colorful with many jewels that adorn the body. The jewels that are usually used are necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets, a head ornament called “Tikka” and sometimes also a belt or a “piercing” in the nose. It is impossible not to feel handsome in that outfit.
