The Business Of Dance
The Business of Dance Imagine creating something from nothing. Nileeka did just that. She invested a little under £300 to start up @thebollywoodco just over 4 years ago. Today, as well as working alongside event companies, dance studios, casting directors and international clients, she also personally works for artists, record labels, influencers and brands. The reason for her success? Simple. Understanding ‘The Business of Dance’.
In this unique seminar Nileeka will, for the first time, share her knowledge on how she converted her vision into her reality. The focus will be brand building, so whether you are thinking of building a brand, or making yourself the brand, these are the all the things you’ll need to know to get started!

Who better to teach Bollywood than Ridy? A dancer who has carved her name in the Industry and knows the ins and outs of what’s really required from it’s dancers. This class will be like no other Bollywood class you have experienced before. You will leave with a routine that you will know from every angle. You will use the comfort of mirrors, but then you will be challenged to perform! You will be challenged to create, push your boundaries, and bring out the professional dancer in you.

Commercial for Stage
International Choreographer + Performer, Sammi Lee Jayne has created a unique masterclass specifically for the Pro Experience Participants. This masterclass is designed specifically to show you how to perform ON STAGE. Not only will you learn a badass commercial routine, the routine itself will be set as if for a stadium performance. Having recently worked with Dua Lipa, Zara Larson and French Montana to name a few, this is the only commercial class you need to be seen at right now. Follow her work @SammiLeeJayne
Cleverly fusing both Waacking and Bollywhack, this class is going to give you an opportunity to learn Kumari’s signature styles, with a particular focus on how to dance for CAMERA. Kumari is known for her magnetic on-screen persona, and this masterclass is going to give you more than a taste of how to build your own!
Areas covered will include – working those angles, knowing how to use your eyes, building a relationship with the camera, and making the choreography work for you. Once you know how to work the camera, your possibilities as a dancer are endless… so make this experience count. Follow her work @KumariSuraj
With over 100K followers on Instagram and 200K followers on YouTube, the world is eagerly watching these exciting twins. But every time they bring out a dance cover, they manage to out-perform their last. What is it about their energy, synchronisation and choreography that makes us unable to tear our eyes away in case we miss a beat? We are about to find out.
In this unique and intense workshop, Poonam + Priyanka will show us how they perform to perfection. This masterclass is going to open your eyes to how much the details really matter. The fusion of Urban and Desi has never been more powerful. And this is your opportunity to learn from the two women who have that locked down. Follow their work @PoonamandPriyanka
