Introducing the Pink Bollywood Flamingos! We were invited to Vivian’s 9th birthday party to do a Bollywood themed party as she had always wanted to try Bollywood dancing with her friends.
We arrived at the Arts Theatre in Cambridge, bright and early and looking forward to the party. Pink costumes were bought for all the nine girls, which matched our pink costumes perfectly. The girls even renamed us all the ‘Pink Bollywood Flamingos’!
They wanted to have some performances from professional dancers, so I took three dancers along with me too, from my other dance company Bollywood Vibes. We all perform at events as well as teaching loads of dance workshops in all styles of dance, so I knew I had a great team with me for this party.
At the start of the party we got the girls dressed in their costumes, then put the Bindis on them to complete the sparkly fun look, they looked amazing! We started off with a short Bollywood performance from us 4 dancers to show the mini dancers what they were going to be learning – and they loved it!
We then did a Bollywood warm up with them, and played lots of dance games before starting to teach the main dance routine. They were really fast learners and great dancers.
Some parents (and staff from the theatre!) came back at the end of the party as they were all dying to have a look at the end dance performances. Us pro’s did a second short performance for everyone, followed by the girl’s Bollywood dance. They were all fantastic and blew us away with their energy and enthusiasm. We had sooo many hugs from everyone after that they were almost late for their birthday lunch at Jamie’s Italian after!
It was such a fun party to be part of, we loved it.
