Busting a move isn’t just fun, it’s a way of expressing ourselves through rhythmic movement set to some awesome tunes. Throughout the human experience we have used dance and music to share our beliefs, articulate our feelings and teach tolerance. Inspired by rich tales filled with love, intrigue and suspense, Bollywood dance helps its practitioners find peace and serenity through its wild tempo and rapid pace. At Bombay Jam, our team of choreographers, fitness instructors, and Bollywood dancers design original, Bollywood-inspired dance fitness programs set to a specially crafted and fused soundtrack of Bollywood and Top 40 music.

We’ve Got the Beat
One of the cool things about dance is that anyone can do it. No matter your skills, dance carries no expectations and holds no judgments. In fact, dance is built into the very fiber of our beings. According to Women’s Health Magazine, when we are struck by a good beat and drum our fingertips along the steering wheel in the car or tap our feet under the desk, we are exhibiting an evolutionary pattern set up by our ancestors. As dance and oral stories were used to communicate ideas around the communal fire thousands of years ago, today, we intrinsically link dance and music with communication. Have you ever noticed that when you hear David Bowie’s song “Heroes” – you are immediately reminded of the love you share with your partner, in good or bad times? It’s because the circuits in our brain connect the music we are hearing to our memory system, hence why music has the power to garner such strong reactions, physical or emotional. This is why it’s so important to “Shake it out,” to steal Taylor Swift’s words of wisdom.
Dance has the extraordinary capacity to not only make us feel good emotionally, but to pump us up physically, as well. According to the Better Health Channel, dance develops muscle tone and improves our strength, while also supporting our mental health. We have all heard how endorphins can drastically elevate your mood. When you participate in our dance fitness program at Bombay Jam, you’re not just getting in shape, you are rewiring your brain to make connections with the beat of the music and the serotonin pumping through your body, creating for a strong fitness cocktail made up of joy and physical excellence. Our dance fitness program is the motivation builder you need to help you continue along your fitness journey. When your fitness regimen is a large, choreographed Bollywood dance party, exercise isn’t a chore—it’s a social happening.
Dancing isn’t a unitary sport. Dance is meant to be a shared experience between a group of people who want to rock out to the hits and let the rhythm move them. At Bombay Jam, our dance fitness program immerses you in a world of light, color, and sound so transcending that you’ll want to grab hands with the person beside you and celebrate.
