Meena Arts     Bollywood Va-Va-Voom!

Indian dance classes – Bollywood-inspired dancing

I am the first dance tutor to introduce Indian Bollywood dance to the Isle of Skye. I love dancing and choreography. Age is not a barrier. Teaching to mixed abilities and special needs a privilege. I enjoy teaching the skills of a new routine and technique of Bolly dancing to all ages and all sizes! In true Bollywood style, it has been wonderful to include Scottish and international influences to new choreographies whilst maintaining the Va-Va-Voom! style of  the dances.

I began teaching in Skye in 2010 to a vast range of groups. I am proud to say that over the years my ‘Bolly Babes’, all local participants, have performed in MeenaArts shows at various venue including Aros, and SEALL at Sabhal Mor Ostaig. We showcase our skills at the annual SkyeDance shows and Eden Court’s Big Dance Shows in Inverness as well as popping up at other events. Snippets in the local media and BBC Alba TV have been motivating!

I am often asked to make presentations on the art and cultural aspects of Indian Dance. I am happy to give individual tuition.

My Bolly group continues to make a vibrant contribution into dance in Skye! We had a sell out show at Waternish Hall in February, a show for the Good for you participants at the Aros theatre, and will be performing at Eden Court again in November at the Big Dance Show.

More recently, I have contributed to the excellent Tha Seo Math Dhuibh – Good for you project organised by Aros. It has been extremely challenging and rewarding working with the elderly, intergenerational and special needs groups with my ‘Movement for Health Session’ By Tha Seo Math Dhuibh

The classes enable the dancers to get an insight into modern Indian dance (Bollywood style) – fun, sensuous, rhythmic, expressive, skillful, soulful, graceful, uplifting combining classical, North Indian and folk dance techniques and international influences.
