Indigo is an Academy in Raleigh-Durham that specializes in Bollywood Dance - which is a fusion dance form of India. The term ‘Bollywood’ comes from the combination two words, “Bombay city” and “Hollywood”. Bombay city (now known as Mumbai) with its age old history of movie-making is the entertainment capital of India. Indigo teaches group lessons through Town recreation centres of Morrisville, Cary and Raleigh, for all ages 4 & Up, and also 1-on1s for special occasions/competitions etc. Indigo also introduced a fun workout Bollywood fitness form in the Triangle for corporate entities such as Cisco. Since its launch in 2013 here, Indigo has provided over 100 presentations at public festivals, trade shows, schools, colleges, museums, business inaugurations, staff parties & private events. With their prolific activity along with offering classes at Town recreation centers in the Triangle, Indigo has generated a lot of awareness of “Bollywood” dance in the Triangle region. The academy is headed by Priya Chellani who brings several years of teaching experience from her hometown Mumbai (Bombay) the capital town itself of the dance style.
Throwback to 2014- Winning the INTERNATIONAL Dance Contest Runner-up Group
This is an ode to the adage "Dreams can come true, if you believe and follow thru". For the everyday women in this dance whose dream it was to dance a challenging routine on stage, they found themselves not just performing, but WINNING the 1st Runner-Up with BOLLYWOOD at the INTERNATIONAL DANCE COMPETITION! Encouraged & guided by the teacher, and despite tough competition from teams from African Jazz, Hiphop, Latin Salsa, Chinese Folk, & Tribal Bellydancers, our "Bollywood Bevy" made it to the top 3 teams of the day! What an honor for Bollywood in North Carolina and kudos to Priya the teacher at Indigo Dance Academy. The event was anchored by Renee Chou of WRAL TV for Raleigh International Festival.
