Why Choose Bollywood Dancing
- Bollywood dances are created for groups
And what better group to learn one of the routines than a bride and her friends. The hen takes centre stage while her friends become a team of gyrating lovelies who let her shine while still looking amazing.
- Bollywood hens parties are a brilliant icebreaker
Our groups of girls especially love the social nature of Bollywood dancing for a hen’s do: It’s a great ice-breaker and allows you to forge bonds with the other girls – some of whom you may meet for the very first time. It gets rid of the awkwardness which invariably exists when you bring together several groups of women from different areas of the brides life who have never met before and whose only link is their friendship with the hen. Our Bollywood dancing parties create a sense of pride which resonates through the group once everyone successfully recreates the routine.
- Bollywood Dancing is the best work-out
Our teachers choreograph routines that get your heart beat pumping all the while being extremely entertaining and fun. Think of yourself as famous Bollywood actress and get that booty shaking. We at Hens Party Ideas Adelaide love dancing. It has a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Dancing is a great way to keep fit and get your heart rate up. It can help get rid of those love handles and build lean muscle. When giving it your all, you can lose up to 500 calories per hour dancing. Yes, you heard right. As many calories as you would lose when going for a high intensity run. But unlike running, time \flies during our Bollywood Dancing package and you don’t suffer from the awesome work out you are getting.
- A word of warning
You may be so proud of those moves you have learnt there is every likelihood they will reappear throughout the night’s proceedings and the nightclub floor will be buzzing with you and your Bollywood babes.
- The downside
The only downside is that it will end too soon and you’ll be left wanting more.

The History of Bollywood Dance
It was the Bollywood film industry that made Bollywood Dancing so popular.
All those millions of people across the world who cried their hearts out watching Bollywood movies wanted to dance it too. Bollywood’s origins lie in Bhangra, a Punjabi folk dance and some classical Indian Dance styles such as Odissi, Kathak and is Bharatnatyam. Our dance teacher Priya teaches girls this classical style.
Have you ever seen Western pop and pure classical dance numbers side by side in a Bollywood film. Some Bollywood dance teachers include elements of street style, hip-hop and jazz in their teaching; our teacher Jessie does this.
With the increase of globalisation in the seventies came the growth of the Bollywood dance style. Cabaret was the first alternate dance style to have an large influence on Bollywood dancing, and was closely followed by the effect of disco fever which was encapsulating the world. The Bollywood industry gained immense popularity and this lead to a saturation of immensely talented dancers, which in turn, lead to a ‘free era’ of Bollywood dancing due to the development of each famed dancer’s own personal style. The eighties brought MTV, and with it, larger exposure of western pop culture and dancing styles. The nineties came with the world wide web and information on the dancing styles unique to different cultures. Both decades impacted ‘Bollywood’ style dancing and the Bollywood that we have come to love is now a fusion of a number of dancing styles including classic and folk Indian dance, jazz, hip-hop, belly dancing, salsa and the director, choreographer and individual dancers own signature style.
Who knows that the word Bollywood combines two words: ‘Bombay’, one of India’s largest cities that is now called Mumbai, and ‘Hollywood’? Mumbai’s Bollywood industry provides not only India, but the entire world with its largest, not only with regard to the number of films produced, but also the number of sold each year. Indians love Bollywood too, and in 2014 the population of India is around 1.27 billion people.
Bollywood dancing’s world wide appeal has been in the making for a number of decades. At first you could only find it in places where Indian films were shown. But Australia, it seems, has now embraced Bollywood wholeheartedly. The Oscar winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire” was such a success.
What will you learn at a Bollywood Dance hen’s party?
In our Adelaide Bollywood hens party classes you learn classical hand gestures
and the poses to go with them,
and traditional Bhangra she dance steps as modern and classical from the Bollywood movies. After just one and a half hours with either of our teachers you will be budding Bollywood stars.
Does this sound too good to be true? Are you self-proclaimed 2 left feeter, like I thought I was before I took a Bollywood Dancing class? It’s surprisingly easy… the first step is giving it a go and trying Bollywood at a hen party is SO much fun. You’ll be patting dogs and screwing light bulbs to a popular Indian song from a Bollywood movie ! Before long you’ll be caught up in its vibrant colours and energy. And the good thing is, if you really love it, our teachers also run regular Bollywood classes. They allow you to be seduced by the mire of Bollywood once a week.
Last week we organised a Bollywood Dance hen’s party for which the chief bridesmaid had requested that the girls learn to dance to Jai Ho , one of the most popular songs in slum dog millionaire. One girl told us: “Ever since I saw ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ with that joyful Bollywood group dance at the end, I’ve wanted to ‘join in’ the dance!”
Some people argue that Bollywood popularity is due to the ever expanding Indian diaspora, but we believe that we Australian non-Indians are fascinated and captivated by the exotic, larger than life qualities inherent in it. Bollywood films have such lavish sets, and extravagant costumes. Think about it, Madonna, Shakira & Britney Spears have also included Bollywood style dance or music into their songs and videos.
So here at Hens Party Ideas Adelaide we believe that if you’re looking to have a party that is fun and out of the ordinary, Bollywood is sure to be a winner.
