HOUSTON – Houston Life hosts, Derrick Shore and Courtney Zavala learn the basics of Bollywood dancing with a virtual lesson.
Bollywood combines the city of Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) with Indian film culture or “Hollywood.”
Basically, the films are more like musicals and feature big dance numbers that become very popular with fans.
Whether it’s a love story or comedy, Bollywood really encompasses a wide range of categories.
“It just depends on the mood, the emotion, whatever it is, and we’ll have anything from Indian classical dance to hip-hop to contemporary, so Bollywood is really like an infusion of a lot of different styles of dance,” says Tina Bose-Kumar, the artistic director for INFUSED Performing Arts.
Ten years ago, Bose-Kumar and her husband started INFUSED Performing Arts.
