Indian / Bollywood Party, Part 9 {Bollywood Dancing! (and presents)}

This might have been my favorite part of the whole party. I knew I wanted to have the girls learn a fun Bollywood dance. I thought about showing them a scene from a fun Bollywood movie, but didn't think that would do the trick.

If you want to see a great Bollywood movie, I would recommend Jodhaa Akbar. You can see a clip HERE.

I have the MOST FABULOUS ZUMBA TEACHER - Leslie. I LOVE going to her class each week. (Sat mornings at 10:15 at the Sprotsplex in Kaysville, UT - you should come!) She incorporates SO MANY fun styles of dance into all her routines. Much of it has a Bollywood flare, and I love doing it!!!

Here she is, teaching them how to hold their arms. Isn't she lovely!?! :)

I approached her about teaching the girls a number at the party, and when she agreed... I WAS SO HAPPY!!! I am so lucky! Thanks Leslie!!!

I can't even tell you how cute it was to watch these girls dance Bollywood style!

She taught them proper arms and proper feet. It was SO FUN!!!

Leslie brought her own music to teach the girls. Before she came, I had some fun music playing. I made a fun play list, and I am trying to figure out how to cut and paste it. It's not working! I'll keep trying ;)

They really got into it. Aren't they flexible?

I thought a few of them might feel shy or nervous, but Leslie made them feel right at home, and they ALL did great! Leslie, you're the BEST!

Leslie also teaches kids Zumba at The South Davis Rec center in Bountiful, UT. I want to take Sophie to one of her classes. She accepts requests, and even choreographs to Justin Biber! (Did I spell that right?)


The grown-ups had fun too. I know my sister-in-law is thinking about driving from Lehi to Kaysville to do one of her classes ;)

My mom doesn't think she has the moves, but I think she does!
She's got the moves like Jagger!

After the dancing, we went downstairs for the gifts. It was a perfect end to a perfect party!

Oh my goodness!! What an amazing party, I just read all of the posts, and loved them all. The little dolls are wonderful, as well as the furniture. The photo shoot was so pretty. Love the idea of using craft paint for the mehndi. What an amazing party this must have been, thanks for sharing! :)
