Montalvo Arts Center kicks off its Summer Nights Series with Live Music Dance Parties, three evenings of exceptional live music and fun, accessible dancing lessons. In a series that showcases a 10-piece salsa band, West Coast bluegrass sounds, and Bollywood-inspired dances, attendees are invited to come early (6:30pm) to learn steps, or come later (7:30pm) to enjoy music and dancing.
This series wraps up with an evening of Bollywood and Bhangra led by Tinny Juneja and Kashish Juneja, instructors from the Bollywood Dance Connection. The style of Bollywood mixes symbolic hand gestures, facial expressions, and foot movements, while Bhangra incorporates energetic kicks, leaps, and bends of the body. Attendees will be invited on a South Asian musical journey as a Dohl drummer from KGS Live Indian Entertainment collaborates with DJ Love of Desi Jammers to lay down rhythms.
