We had such fun with Madhuri, an exceptionally patient and lovely instructor who taught us three really fun dances. Despite the lack of experience we had, we came out of the class laughing and leaving with dance routines to show to our friends and family! Definitely worth it and was for sure a highlight of our trip!

Tanya

Greetings from all of us at Arya Niwas. Thank you for the feedback and for your kind words! It is nice to know that you liked bollywood dance class. I will passon your feedback to our dance instructor. Hope to see you again.
