I definitely left my comfort zone tonight. I bought the DVD "Learn to Bollywood with Pallavi." I love Bollywood music and the intricate dance routines. I've always wanted to learn to dance, but I was always too self-conscious because of my weight. The DVD was perfect. I could dance in the privacy of my own home.
Volume 1 of the series teaches the dance "Dhoom Taana." The teacher, Pallavi, breaks down the choreography down into small, easy to follow steps. She repeats the steps several times and then combines them. She also explains the folk dance origins of the movements.
I actually did much better than I ever thought I would. I had a blast. I'll never be Madhuri Dixit, but I can always dream!
