Updated: Jun 21, 2019

Are you a beginner trying to pick dancing? Or you want a fun workout? Or you are someone who loves dancing but don’t want to bound yourself in one single type of dance form? Or you simply too confused as to what to style to learn?

Well, worry not. Bollywood dance is to the rescue! It’s in trend right now. It is easy to learn and fun to do. And most importantly it can be anything you want it to be. Bollywood dance style includes a variety of different other dance styles like Punjabi, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, and a bunch of other Indian folk and Classical dances. It is so because Bollywood music is essentially a fusion of a variety of music genre and hence when dancing those songs, and dance takes up the same variety and the product is Bollywood dance style. Also, this is the most trending dance style in India right now. So you should definitely check out, why everyone is going gaga over Bollywood dance.

Well here is a list of reasons why I think you should definitely go for Bollywood Dance.

It is fun

Which doesn’t mean that other dance styles are not, but this is one dance style where you can just let yourself go, and as a person who has learned Bharatnatyam since I was 5, where you have to follow very strict rules, letting go can be super fun?

Anyone and everyone can do it

You don’t need to have formal training to perform. This form is for the masses and there is something for everyone. Which means anyone can learn and perform it.

It is perfect for beginners

This is the perfect dance form to pick for beginners. If you are not sure what dance form to go for, try Bollywood and figure out from there. You will get an idea of most other forms and then you’ll be able to decide which suits you the best.

It is a good workout

Any dance is a great workout. That being said, I find Bollywood to be the best and the most fun. Two reasons, I love Bollywood music. It always makes me wanna dance. Second, it’s never going to be boring as there are literally hundreds of combinations of dance steps you can do.

You can perform anytime

If you are someone who does Bollywood dancing frequently, chances are you’ll be always ready to break out a coordinated dance move anytime you want. Which is especially important for people like me. You never know when the chance arrives and you’ll ready then. You don’t need to spend extra time and money on hiring a choreographer and searching choreographies online whenever you want to perform somewhere.

I am utterly convinced that Bollywood dance is the best dance form. What is your opinion? Tell me all about it. Or better yet, drop by my studio Verve Dance Zone, during my Bollywood dance class and see for yourself.
