Q: How has working with BollyX changed you or your lifestyle?
Two years back, I moved to New York and met Minal at one of the demo classes. Simply loved her energy and rockstar attitude in the class. She explained about the Instructor training after the class. I was excited to try it out and soon signed up. I got certified in Feb 2016 with my mentor Meredith Miller and took my first class at Mark Morris Dance Studio, New York in August which infact was NYC Dance week 🙂 Since then there is no going back.
Its the excitment of being a class full of new people, lip syncing to songs and wearing a ridiculously infectious smile despite the soreness that keeps me going. I’m getting stronger and confident with every BollyX class.

I have been with crazy BollyX community for more than a year now.
