As Bollywood dance is more focused on choreography, this online course has been planned as a short course of 4 weeks. In this span of 4 weeks, the students will learn 2 short choreographies (Approx 1.5 min each) on 2 songs of their choice or as recommended by the teacher. Each class is of 60 minutes and the class would be consisting of 4 segments:
Short warm-up (5 - 10 min): The warm-up would include light exercises to loosen up the different body parts, some stretches, and body isolation movements.
Dance technique: (10-15 min): In this segment, the student would be introduced to a few technicalities of dance that are commonly used in Bollywood dancing. Though Bollywood dance is a more freestyle dance, it is important to learn the correct technique in order to achieve a graceful finishing of the steps. The students would learn variations in footwork, formations of hand gestures, hip isolation movements, and coordination between hands and feet.
Choreography (30 min): This segment would hold the major focus of the class, as choreography is the core of Bollywood dancing. Students would be taught rhythmical dance steps that compliment and reflect the lyrics of the chosen song. Students would be given an understanding of how the dance technique that has been introduced to them can be applied to choreography. This segment would involve a lot of movement, energy, expression, and of course a lot of fun!
Closing (5min): The last min of the class would be allotted to finishing movements, revision, or discussion of doubts that are raised by the student. An edited audio track of the chosen song would be provided to the student at the end of the course.
