Welcome to Bollywood Funk NYC!
Formed in 2007, Bollywood Funk NYC is New York City’s only dance institution specializing in urban contemporary Bollywood Dance. Our classes teach true Jazz and Hip Hop dance technique to today's most popular, invigorating and heart-pumping Hindi music.
At Bollywood Funk, you’ll soon learn that you are not joining just a dance class, but an EXPERIENCE. You will experience high energy, interactive classes and events, make connections with fun, friendly people, in a vibrant, diverse community.
Whether you have ”two left feet” or are an aspiring professional dancer, we welcome you!
Our classes are focused on providing the fun element of Bollywood, at the same time teaching students the "technique" and the “art” of performing. Most of our classes run in a four-week session format, with one choreography being taught sequentially over a defined period. At the end of each session, all classes school-wide come together for ‘Performance Night; to practice and show what they’ve learned; it’s one big, dance party!
To ensure personal attention, we keep a low student-to-instructor ratio. We promote respect and appreciation for the art of dance by nurturing the mental and physical development of our students, while teaching our students to dance with confidence, and most of all, to have FUN. In addition, outside of classes, we regularly hold parties, movie and club nights and more.
Given the unique style, format and challenge level to our classes not seen in other dance schools, we recommend that all new students start with our Basic Beginner class, regardless of previous dance experience. Your teacher will assess your learning aptitude and dance technique, and will make his/her recommendation for your future classes going forward.
