  • Is the class high-impact?

    While some people teach gentle, low-impact moves, at bG we believe in giving people themaximum bang for their buck! The moves are energetic and dynamic, involving every muscle group in your body. We have people in their early 20s to upper 60s in our classes. The class is taught in high-low format, making it possible for individuals to modify the moves according to their needs.

  • How much prior experience do I need?

    Absolutely none needed! Our biggest joy is to watch the incredible mix of people taking our classes – from the serious dancer to the one who believed most of their lives that they can not dance.

  • Do I need to memorize dance routines?

    Nope! Bollywood Groove™ Cardio is for dancers, non-dancers, exercise-buffs and those who like us, dread the treadmill :) There is no pressure of having to learn and perfectly memorize a sequence of choreographed dance. Dance along with the instructor and have fun!

  • How is this different from other Dance/Cardio classes?

    Bollywood Groove™ Cardio is very unique because the moves are meaningful. They are not just a random sequence of moves you can put to any song. Bollywood has incredible amount of variety in its music and dance genre. From semi-classical, folk, Indian Hiphop, jazz, middle-eastern to what we call “filmy”, each and every song has a distinct category. So the challenge for a choreographer is to enact the lyrics to some extent and understand which moves to pair with each song.

    We hear this all the time from our clients that theylove our choreography! The moves gel very well with the lyrics or the overall theme of the song and the people in the class feel that energy as well.
