After receiving requests to teach from all over the world, Lopa created a two disc instructional DVD set which shares her approach to breaking down movement and allows an accessible way for everyone to learn to dance.
Learn the hand, arm, and leg movements of Bollywood and Bhangra dance. Taught by Lopa in the beautiful studios of the National Ballet School in Toronto, join Lopa and her dancers as they take you through the world of Bollywood dance. Let’s get dancing!
Each DVD has three segments:
1. Stretching which is important for any dance or fitness regime
2. Bhangra where you will learn moves that are great for parties and the dance floor
3. A Bollywood inspired dance routine which ties it all together
Volume 1: Seated Upper Body teaches the arm, shoulder and finger movements of Indian dance with a choreography.
Volume 2: Full Body brings everything together by adding the lower body movements of the hips, legs, and feet patterns. Learn a different Bollywood choreography than Volume 1.
What people have to say about the videos:
"I just LOVE the DVD. Lopa is a very good teacher and she allows for just the right amount of step breakdown, repetition and building. She has a very accessible style too. The ladies in her video were so lovely! They were all fit and moved well but not a boney little thing in sight. I loved that. Such a great message for women." - Trish Smith Roche, Zumba Instructor
"Shyla loves the DVD and had a special request today: ‘Want to watch Lopa!’ “- Shyla’s Mom (Shyla is 4 years old)
I am from Italy. I bought your dvds for learning Bhangra and Bollywood dance. I am an adult figure skater. Last year I built a choreography on Bollywood music for my adult competitions. I used some of the movements you teach on your DVD. I would like to thank you because I won the 3 competitions I did with this program." - Marcello Cazzaniga, Figure Skater
