WATCH: Bollywood fever comes to north Norfolk school
Fancy footwork was at the fore in the grounds of a north Norfolk school as a Bollywood dancer hosted a workshop.
Happisburgh Primary School’s friends group raised £750 to pay for Kalpesh Zalavadiya from London-based K’z Dance Entertainment to teach around 90 children - as well as parents and staff - the basics of Bollywood dance.
Some of the youngsters wore bright clothes to help get into the spirit of the beat-based and rhythmic music made famous by India’s booming film industry.
Kate Mejri, the school’s head, said: “They’ve been learning dance moves and also about Indian culture. We really feel that’s important for the children, to learn about other cultures.”
One pupil, Amber Jefferies, nine, said: “It’s really fun and tiring.”
Classmate Nathan Gilbert, also nine, said: “We’ve learned about the Holi festival, where they decorate each other and throw coloured powder.”
