A collaboration between Bollywood Beats dancers and Hong De lions resulted in a spectacular fusion of Chinese and Indian cultures for a Chinese bride and an Indian groom on the weekend. Our brief from the wedding couple was that not only did they wanted to show off elements of the two cultures but also combine both cultures together in a performance. For the last month our performers have been learning Bollywood dancing with Nildhara Gadani at both our studio and as well as her studio in Glen Waverley. Our wedding lions kicked off the night by entertaining the guests at the Park Hyatt during pre-dinner drinks. Later in the night, Nildhara performed some solo dances and ended with the combined dance to 'Jai Ho' (theme song from Slum Dog Millionaire) with four of her dancers, three dancers from Hong De as well as our two lions. Thank you to Grace and Bijan for giving us an opportunity to try something unique and fun! Thank you Nildhara for all the dance lessons! Well done to all the performers! Jai Ho!!
