Bolly good time!

September 5, 2011 in Dancing

I celebrated my 30th birthday this weekend in style….Bollywood style.  My sisters and friends gathered at iDance Studios in Vancouver to join me for a 1 hour private group lesson. The instructor was energetic and she taught us a fantastic Bollywood routine during the hour. We screwed in some light bulbs, and performed high energy movements that were fairly fast paced and kept our heart rates up. Malaya even joined us for most of the lesson, while Jerrick watched Mahal and took pictures and video footage of this memorable experience.

Why Bollywood? Well, I’ve never danced this particular genre and while growing up, dancing was one of my favourite activities. Up until this weekend, it had been at least 10 years since I had taken a dance class (besides some Salsa dance classes that I had taken with Jerrick a few years ago), so I figured there would be no better time than the present to do this.

Did I ever enjoy myself! It felt great to work up a sweat, while getting in some good laughs with good company.

It wasn’t until this Bollywood class did I realize how much I miss the release that I get from dancing. Dancing is something I hope to incorporate more of into my future fitness regime and it’s a love that I hope to pass on to our kids as well. Below is a video that Jerrick created to sum up our time. Enjoy!
