So How Do You Actually Learn A Dance?

Our friend got us hooked on Saroj Khan - the choreographer behind many of the early 90s bollywood hits - and her show "Nachle Ve". She takes much of the credit for Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit's acclaimed dancing ability. This is for those of you who - like us - need a little help learning choreographed dances, because seriously, we need all the help we can get.

Basically, Saroj breaks down a dance and teaches it to the viewers. First she'll dance alone and then her students will dance so you get an idea of what the whole thing should look like. So do wait for the students to do their thing!

Don't you love her facial expressions? Over-the-top in the best possible way! Oh, and if you want to see the actual bollywood video it's based on....check it out here!

p.s. - there are a TON of these videos on youtube and the dances are broken down even further with step-by-step instructions
