Adults Classes

Find yourself uplifted by the vibrant colours and high energy music of Bollywood. Dance Masala’s classes are an amazing way to have fun, get fit and find community, while gaining a foundation in Bollywood dance.

Our term classes help develop strength, rhythm, confidence and artistry – offering performance opportunities at all levels. We teach Bollywood, Bollyhop, Semi-Classical, Dance Conditioning, and Bollyfit. The term consists of technique followed by choreography!

All Classes are Now Online! Sign up here!

All of our classes are currently being held online! We are super excited about the possibilities of an entirely online studio – it means that students who have moved or missed class can join in on the fun! To participate in our online classes, you will need:

  • – A computer/phone/tablet with internet
  • – A well-ventilated/air-conditioned space with room to dance

How do online classes work?

  • – New students are required to sign up following this link. Casual students are welcome to attend!
  • – Every week we will email you a link to a private Zoom meeting (or a Google Meet link for Bollyhop students)
  • – Please note, we anticipate 5 minutes of technical issues at the start of each class
  • – Unsure of something? Feel free to unmute yourself at anytime to ask the teacher a question, or comment on the livestream.
  • – After class, record yourself doing the dance and send it to us for some feedback 😍📷
  • – Please be patient as this is new and we know live internet classes often have delays…we will be learning about this together!
