Indian/Bollywood Dancers

hey girls, so my FI is from Nepal and is super into Hindi music and Bollywood movies. I was thinking it would be really fun to hire some dancers to perform at the reception. The only problem is I don't really have any idea where to look and my google searches arent turning anything up either. if anyone has any suggestions of where to look, I'd really appreciate it! I'm going to post this on the South Asian board too, but figured the local one might be better!! Thanks!

    Gigmasters.com might be worth a shot. (P.S. This sounds like an awesome idea!)

    You might also check with local colleges who may have Indian/Bhangra/Bollywood dance performance groups.  I have friends who did this style of dance in college, and were pretty serious about it.  They went to competitions and stuff...

    This is a pretty common element at Indian weddings I have attended.  The ones I have been to, it was guests who practicied and performed the dances though.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I briefly checked out gigmasters, but I think maybe I need to play around with it a little more...i just kept getting results ofor Hula dancers!! The colleges is also a great idea, my only question would be who do you think I contact at a college?? Hmmmm...

    If the colleges have dance majors, you might want to start with a department chair or one of the professors. Or if the student organzations have one main webpage there might be contact info there, too.

    I have a good friend from college who is from India & used to do Indian dancing--she took classes & did performances.  I can ask her where she used to go or if she can recommend a group for you.
    Yay! Finally able to update my signature :)
