We learn Bollywood dance as part of our enquiry into Indian culture!
I4 lines of inquiry were ‘Characteristics of different cultures’ and ‘Celebrations of festivities in various cultures “. What better way to learn about a different culture than to dance their traditional dances.
As we were learning about Indian culture, we had the opportunity to have a Bollywood dance class in a dance studio. When we arrived, we were introduced to Indian culture with a short video. The teacher explained to us about the clothes that she was wearing and the bindi, which we then put on our foreheads as well!
We learned different dance movements such as the flowers, the rainbows, and many more!
The children were able to dance a full choreography using many of these steps. We had an amazing experience and learned loads! We love India!
