Dance reminds me that we are all made of stars. Literally: we share the same incredible elements with all of Nature and perhaps the best way to remember that is to be bold and shine like the stars we are.
I joined BollyX The Bollywood Workout instructor community in the Summer of 2016 and as they say, it is unleashing my inner rockstar. It also brings together my love of dance and of Indian Cinema. Sometimes I like to get high impact and jump around in my sneakers with BollyX. Other times, I like to get low impact and more rooted to the ground barefoot style with BollyX LIT.
