Muscle and Music Club

If full on Bollywood isn’t your thing, there’s a hip-hop influenced Bollywood class at the Muscle and Music Club. ZuBoo, a well-known B-Boy and Hip-Hop dancer, choreographs typical Bollywood dances with popping, locking and breaking. And although it does seem a little more complicated, this twice-a-week class is something we want in on.

Figurine Fitness

Perhaps the first place in the city to have Bollywood aerobics, Figurine Fitness is a great place to follow up your workout with some much needed dance. Their “Retro Bolly Aerobics” with songs from the early 90s sounds like something we’d definitely be down for. This place is always thumpin’!
