Instructor & Class Description
My name is Julie Marques and I’ll be teaching a Bollywood Fusion Skillshop at Full Out Studios here in Oakland starting in June. I began studying Classical dance in Nepal and then India twenty years ago where I was exposed to tons of Bollywood. After years of Classical training I fell in love with the joy and freedom of the Bollywood dance style. Over the last twenty years of teaching and performing Bollywood, I’ve developed my own style, layering in my Caribbean and Latin roots, Bellydance and Western dance training.
Classical dance training in India and Nepal gave me a strong sense of purpose in dancing, being moved by something larger than myself and I bring this in to the fun, silliness, sexiness and passion of Bollywood dance.
I hope you can join me in this Skillshop where you’ll learn characteristic Bollywood body movements, steps and expressions followed by a fusion of Bollywood dance choreography. At the end of 10 weeks you’ll have an exciting, unique performance ready dance to show.
