Christine Teaching Bollywood Dance

Come check out one of the most fun classes you can experience – Indian Dance! It’s a combination of Bhangra and Bollywood and is filled with the energy of these high-spirited, super fun traditional dance forms. Easy enough for the beginning dancer but still a challenge to any dancer to get their body moving differently, this class covers the basics while keeping the energy high. This dance form is perfect for mixed audiences, men women and children of all ages! Previous Bhangra or Bollywood experience is NOT required.

Once you tap into your own rhythm and your own soul, you take that out in to the world and touch others with it. And they will smile and pass that along.

Christine Garvin is a dance performer and teacher based in Asheville, NC.

She is also an event producer, writer, meditator, and avid hiker.

"Dance is a tool to help you on your journey of deepening self-worth and joy." -Christine
