Over the past two decades, Hudson River Park has offered an ever-growing and evolving roster of dance programming. For the first time last year, we introduced Bollywood and Bhangra classes to our Summer of Fun lineup – a highlight of our 2019 season – and this year, we’re thrilled to continue and expand this exciting virtual series with Ajna Dance Company!
Directed and founded by Minila Shah, a dance polymath, Ajna Dance Company was created with the purpose of making Indian dance and culture more accessible to people of all backgrounds. The company has over half a decade of experience creating community through teaching, celebrating diversity and fostering inclusion through the art of dance – and we’re thrilled to bring them to the Park’s virtual dancefloor!
Join us this fall as these talented instructors lead the way through Bollywood & Bhangra dance stylings inspired by the high energy music and movement from Indian films, seamlessly integrating classical Indian dance, Bhangra and other folk styles. Hudson River Park’s Bollywood & Bhangra series invites all levels to pick up technique and choreography, while learning from the best!
We’re excited to welcome you every Tuesday through October 6 at 7:00 PM on Hudson River Park’s Facebook Live into the ever expanding world of dance at Hudson River Park! Plus, you can check out the first night of the series here.
