At BollyWorks, we strongly believe that anyone can dance Bollywood but not everyone can teach it.  Just by growing up with it and around it, doesn’t necessarily make one an expert in it. And that’s true for Bollywood dance as well.

The BollyWorks Fitness training is created to help individuals become professional BollyWorks Fitness instructors. To join BollyWorks in the mission of making high quality Bollywood dance fitness accessible to anyone and everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are starting off as a new instructor or you’re already teaching some form of fitness. The BWF instructor training is thorough, fun and unlike any other Bollywood instructor training.

What is BollyWorks Fitness?

BollyWorks Fitness is a Bollywood inspired dance fitness workout. The workout is a unique combination of authentic Bollywood dance moves set to energetic Bollywood music. Largely a cardiovascular workout, it moves you through rhythmic high and low intensity dance tracks, unique toning tracks, and Bollywood style warm ups and cool downs. In short, BollyWorks Fitness delivers a power packe total body workout

What makes BWF Unique?

All you need to do is show up in a BollyWorks Fitness class and do your best to follow along. The moves are rhythmic, symmetric, and repetitive. It may be a little challenging if you have never moved before, but as you keep doing our moves you will find yourself getting more coordinated, dancing more to the rhythm, and just having a blast.

Inclusive and diverse community - Over the years, one of the best things about this job is the ability to meet new people and make new friends, grow your network, and expose yourself to a global culture. All BollyWorks Fitness classes are well suited for men and women. We are an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming community.
