We are pleased to present a full season of Bollywood & Bhangra dance lessons this year, expanding this popular series and bringing classes to a new location in the Park! Whether you are an expert, or a beginner, these lessons are a fit(ness class) for all — come join in.
Hudson River Park’s Bollywood & Bhangra series invites dancers of all levels (and ages!) to learn technique from the best. Originating in India, these dance forms highlight rhythm, expression and passion. Bhangra, particularly, is a high-energy folk dance with origins from Punjab in India and Pakistan, a dance now learned and loved by many.
Led by dancers and choreographers from New York City’s Ajna Dance Company, this all-levels hour of movement will be a highlight of your week, and the perfect start to your Saturday!
Our 25th Anniversary event season is presented by Hudson River Park Friends, the Park’s designated fundraising partner. HRPK Friends is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the completion, care and enhancement of the Park.
Hudson River Park is not part of NYC Parks, and we rely on private funds for our free programs, maintenance and operations. That means your donations are essential to ensuring our event season remains free for the public. Show your support today.
