OIBY in collaboration with Bollywood Dance Scene - Twin Cities and The Central Neighborhood, Minneapolis, is very happy to bring Bollywood Dance to the community. We will offer FREE Bollywood Dance every 4th Tuesday of the month!!

Choreographer and Bollywood Dance Scene founding member Divya Maiya says, “Bollywood is inspired by various dance forms like classical, folk, as well as street dances. So it's a huge mash-up of those forms along with hip-hop, belly dancing, and jazz. It does not conform to any strict format. People of all age groups can dance together. It does not require partners. It is over the top ridiculous and you need that to forget all the serious and grim happenings in your life.”

***NOTE***: Class is held at Third Place Gallery, 3730 Chicago Avenue South, just a couple doors north of the former CANDO office at 3736 Chicago Avenue South.
