Yesterday, I was privileged to try their Bollywood Dance class, together with Awakenings owner Sylvia Singson. Bollywood dance is basically a fusion of hip hop, belly dance, and Indian folk and classical dances.  

The class was taught by Marlette Besa of Hipyogi Fitness. Marlette started teaching Bollywood Dance in 2008 and was actually the first to introduce Bollywood Dance classes in the Philippines. Since then, it has been featured in several local magazines and TV shows. Because of its popularity, Marlette was able to bring her Bollywood Dance classes to Boracay, Bicol, Baguio, Cebu, Davao and to different gyms in Metro Manila. 

I knew it would be loads of fun! What I didn’t expect is that I would be sweating like crazy. This dance totally scorched humongous amounts of calories!

 Great news for you because they decided to give our loyal When In Manila readers a chance to try this dance!

To win 2 FREE BOLLYWOOD DANCE PASSES,  you must strike your best Bollywood dance pose and take a picture. You can also include your friends to a maximum of 4 people in a group. Post your pictures on Facebook and fill out this Rafflecopter in order to qualify:

You can never go wrong with a Bollywood movie if you really want to show us your moves!

Fun fact: Their movies are often coined as masala films, after the famous Indian spice, because they are a mixture of various genres – action, romance, musical, comedy and so on.

 

3. Share the spotlight with your friends.
