It looks like I'm not the only one trying new ways to work out in 2009. Bollywood-style dance classes are catching on throughout the country, and people are loving the mix of traditional Indian folk dances with hip-hop moves. From New York to Chicago, Houston, and Atlanta, studio owners say they are having to add classes to meet increased demand.
Students learn Bollywood dances and are exposed to a culture they may not be familiar with, which makes the classes even more appealing for some. We can expect to see Bollywood dance classes appear on a bigger scale in the fitness world, and I think would be a fun way to get moving. While the classes are expanding in many places, they may not be available yet in your area, so take a peek into the hype with Bollywood workout DVDs.
