Is Bollywood Dance a Waste of Time

Is Bollywood Dance a Waste of Time? I want to be really honest for a second. Growing up, I took Bharatanatyam because there weren’t any real “Bollywood dance” classes around. I learned the ancient art of Indian classical dance and am forever grateful for it.  It wasn’t until I was in my teenage years that Bollywood really started getting popular. I started creating my own routines because my Guru was NOT a fan of this fusion dance practice.  So many people thought it was a waste of time and energy because it wasn’t “real”

New Year: Reflecting on the Past Decade

New Year: Reflecting on the Past Decade Every year I come up with New Year's resolutions and just like the majority of the human race, I stop sticking to them by January 31st.  Last year, I took a different approach. I didn't make a new years resolution, and instead, I chose a word.  Yup, just one word.  It was BOLD. I chose this word because it was something outside of my comfort zone.

Best After School Activity

Best After School Activity Being in the dance studio industry over the past 5 years - I have heard horror stories of students, parents, team members etc.  I can honestly say that our dance parents are some of the best. While we do get the occasional complaints of being moved to the next level, prices, performances etc, it is still 9 times out of ten a VERY supportive and positive growing community.  One thing I really do appreciate is that our families trust us in our judgment of students moving to the next level.
