Dance Dance Revolution

The kids went around the room and shared their favorite songs and favorite films. Some mentioned the latest Bollywood hits, while others spoke wistfully of numbers released well before their time. In the midst of the circle sat Nic and Nicole, two British singers I previously wrote about and have been working with here in Mumbai. They came to India to spread their unique English-Hindi-Punjabi sound, and I organized for them to come to the Akanksha Center and conduct song and dance workshops with the kids for the upcoming showcase. Always excited about the prospect of a little Bollywood in their lives, the kids once again gave it their all with a talent that never ceases to amaze me.

In addition to the performance with online casino Nic and Nicole, a few of my Akanksha girls will put on a dance number that we have been working on for the past few weeks. Below, see a video of them practicing this more traditional style:

And of course, what are Bollywood dance workshops without a little freestyle? I love this video of the student surpassing the teacher as Nic and Nicole try their best to follow Radha and her moves to “Desi Girl”:
