Bollywood Dance Fusion ™
and Women's Wellness
So, what is Bollywood Dance, anyway???
Bollywood Dance is
a fusion of Western and South Asian types of dance that are exemplified
in Indian cinema and theater. Bollywood is basically the "Hollywood of
Bombay," now known as Mumbai, and is the largest producer of movies
a year in the world right now. I like to think of most Indian movies as a musical with
playback singers, where sometimes the music, and dance, are more important
and more popular than the movie story line itself- And thus the magic that is Bollywood Dance!
Bollywood dance is an eclectic mix of all that is old and new traditional and modern, hip hop and salsa, R&B and trance-which is why it is the right fit for mostly anyone! :)
All this experience plus my work as a mental
health therapist (I am a practicing licensed
clinical social worker in my other life :)), diversity trainer and
educater, allows me to make your Dance adventure a fuller
more meaningful diverse experience, a mixture of dance and therapy for
both the body and mind. I emphasize safety and self
care, I encourage women to share and release stress and to enjoy the
movement without inhibition. My students learn about a different
culture, have a lot of
fun, find a place to relax and feel supported, and get a great cardio
workout all at the same time.
Dance Fusion™ is a healing movement modality with one simple idea; that if you move
and groove to music that inspires you, and connect with your body in a
joyful meaningful way, you will be well on your way to health and
healing, wellness and recovery!
I have performed at
family functions and weddings, community and school programs, and on
TV networks in Ghana. I have provided dance workshops at Tucson Medical
Center, AZ State University School of Social Work, social service
agencies, and local libraries
all around Tucson. I currently work with women
recovering from substance abuse, and people healing from heart disease,
and offer them Bollywood
Fusion™ as a fun way to reconnect with
their bodies and their spirit.
I also teach many dance workshops and seminars all around town, and of course the best of all, I offer a fabulous Bollywood Dance series 3 to 4 times a year that will get you grooving and sashaying your beautiful sexy selves to a rhythm that can be magical and a workout that makes you sweat and laugh all at the same time!!!
So come check out a class or a
workshop! I look forward to dancing with you soon!!! :)
