Creating a Bollywood buzz in Hong Kong.
Every Thursday evening for almost 4 years, people would come to dance with me on Hollywood Road. Launching my classes was a grind and required patience. Slowly the magic of Bollywood took hold of the Soho area. After gaining favorable coverage from South China Morning Post, TimeOut and Sassy Hong Kong, things began to take off. This led to many other opportunities including corporate workshops, performances, wedding choreography and private lessons.
Every week I would teach a different routine with the focus being on fun over form. People from all backgrounds of Hong Kong’s multicultural expat scene would join. Locals would also come to shimmy with me. This is a testament to the boundless appeal of Bollywood and its ability to connect with people. I had so much fun being able to communicate this energy and am grateful for the support from my students.
My final class was a special surprise organised by my dear friend Aude who bought together my closest friends and students to dance with me for the last time. I can now say my face has made it onto a t-shirt thanks to the Bollywood on Hollywood tees made for the finale!
I miss my students dearly and hold them close to my heart.
