Free Classes in Doonya, Bollywood-Inspired Dance
Aug 30, 2016 10:01PM
The classes will be taught by Barb Nagaraj, who is AFAA Group Exercise certified and licensed instructor for Doonya, the Bollywood Workout. As described by LABlog Weekly, Doonya combines elements of Bhangra, Indian classical dance, hip-hop and jazz to create unique fitness routines made up of leg taps, kicks, pick-up steps, shoulder shrugs, hip movements and come-hither facial expressions that coincide with the Hindi lyrics. Set to the latest energetic hits, you could be revisiting the heart-warming Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone flirtations from the hit film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, dancing to Priyanka Chopra's debut single, Exotic, or even rockin' out to Selena Gomez's Indian-influenced Come and Get It.
The classes are part of a partnership developed between the Montgomery County Department of Parks and Natural Awakenings to bring health-related events to the parks throughout the county. All are welcome to attend, and bring their friends.
Location: Elm Street Park, 4600 Elm St., Bethesda.
