Step aside Zumba – there’s a new fitness dance craze in town!
Stars such as Kelly Ripa are raving about Bollywood dance and how it helps them stay toned and fit. The energetic fitness dance blends traditional South Asian style dancing with hip-hop moves to give participants a full-body workout that is also a lot of fun.

Experts say due to the high-intensity movements it’s actually possible to burn up to 700 calories per hour. Its movements help focus on the core – busting belly fat and targeting deep-tissue abdominal muscles.

Because Bollywood style dancing uses a lot of different arm movements, this new dance craze is great for toning up flabby upper arms, defining shoulders and getting rid of pesky ‘bat wings.’
