Short acts for events
Performances can be costumized to match your event as good as possible. Depending on availability, budget and time, the Bollylicious team can come with max. 4 dancers. Highlighting India's diverse dance landscape, they can bring 1 to 4 varied dance acts. Each block has it's own theme:
#swagilicious: Indian funky, slightly nuts and definitely with a lot of swag!
Rangeelo Rajasthan: Uptempo, twirling choreographies from the Rajasthani desert - enjoy and be mesmerised.
Maharaja's dance: Enjoy the royal feel of India with the subtile semi-classical retro-Bollywood songs.
You can book Bollylicious for workshops or intensive trainings. From a party starter to Indian dance introduction classes. The teammembers are trained in Bollywood (from funky to semi-classical) and Rajasthani folk dances (like Kalbeliya and ghoomar). If you're looking for a traditional Indian Classical dance style, such a Kathak, Bharata Natyam or Odissi, you can depend on our guest dancer Sooraj Subramaniam.
