6pm to 9pm – All Ages Social
Dance like a #Bollywood star! After 10 years of teaching across the west coast, the charismatic choreographer DJ Prashant is coming to VMAC for a workshop dedicated to sharing vibrant dances from India. Come prepared to smile & sweat at this workshop focusing on two high energy music & dance forms.
Participants will spend the first-hour learning #Bhangra, the high energy folk dance originating from the north Indian state of Punjab. During the second hour, Prashant will introduce you to the dreamy world of Bollywood, India’s largest film industry based out of Mumbai. You will learn the building blocks of both dances, as well as build a choreography for each form that will have you smiling throughout the workshop & beyond.
After learning the full song, participants will have an opportunity to perform (not required) later in the evening at our very first Bollywood and Bhangra social at VMAC.
Prashant brings over 10 years of experience in teaching bollywood & bhangra dance at universities (PSU, REED & PCC), various dance studios (Portland & Seattle) & hundreds of cultural events to people from all ages, cultures & nationalities. When he is not traveling across the US teaching dance or DJ’ing, Prashant spends time practicing Yoga & Singing.
