What can I wear for dance class?
Workout or Yoga clothes are great, anything you can stretch & sweat in really. You are welcome to wear shoes that support your dancing as necessary.
What can I bring to the dance class?
Water bottle is a great idea, your smile & awesome attitude is an added bonus.
What is a typical beginner class like?
We start with a warmup & stretching followed by learning basic Bollywood/Bhangra moves. We then spend some time slowly learning a new choreography.
Can I drop-in to beginners class?
We repeat choreography taught in beginners class pretty much every week so yes, you should be able to drop-in on most weeks. June-August each year we prepare to perform at India Festival, not at ideal time for drop-ins.
Can I drop-in to intermediate class?
You need to talk to Prashant before starting intermediate class. Typically 1-3 beginners sessions (6 weeks each) are recommended before starting intermediate class.
