Bollywood dance class launched in Sheffield leisure centre

A Sheffield gym has launched a new Bollywood-style fitness class.

Hillsborough Leisure Centre is hosting the class on Wednesdays from 10am to 11am.

Bollywood dancing combines classical with modern Indian dance moves and takes influences from classical Indian dances such as Kathak and Bharatnatyam, as well as Indian Folk dance and Western music and dance moves.

Ayesha Mir, group exercise research and innovation manager, said: “Our belly dancing class has already seen great success and popularity and we hope that the new Bollywood class will follow in its footsteps and provide yet another fun way for local people to keep fit and healthy.

“We are always looking to innovate and bring the latest fitness trends to our members.”
