F.A.Q's

REGISTRATION

What dance styles do you teach?

At Dance Expression, most adult beginner and intermediate batches, kids, teens, and tweens will begin with Bollywood incorporating classical techniques (Bharatnatyam and Kathak) and disciplines. As the classes progress, they will be taught other styles including BollyHop, Indo-Contemporary, Lyrical and Folk such as Bhangra and Garba. This is depending on the level of the class and the consensus of the batch. Each style is choreographed and taught to Bollywood music and remixes.
