Sign up for our Beginner Semi-Private Bhangra/Bollywood Class now starting next Tuesday June 25th!

Minila says...The 6-week series gives me a chance to work consistently with the same group of students where we can build on what we learn each week and see real progress by the end. I can push and challenge students as they progress and we work and build on our choreography week after week. We can delve deeper into a routine and get a chance to polish and clean the choreography as well.

Dates: Six Tuesdays, beginning Tuesday June 25th, 7:30-8:30pm
