The theme for our Arts Week this year is "India" and, as one of our special activities, a visiting expert has come to teach us Bollywood Dancing!
We learned that the word "Bollywood" came from combining the Indian city name "Bombay" (Mumbai's old name) with "Hollywood", the centre of the US film industry and we also learned some other ideas about Bollywood films. We liked the idea that the dances are often a kind of "dance-off" between the boys and the girls!
We practised some moves and dance steps and patterns before doing some choreography of our own by sequencing some dance movements that we had learned and creating others. To finish the session each group performed to the rest of the class in a mini dance-off with another group.
