Ticket to Bollywood has been on tour since 2010. This Bollywood dance show was created by Shubhra Bhardwaj, choreographer and founder of FerrisWheel Entertainment in India. When she started her project, she aimed at foreign audiences, and the performance has been adapted to them. Besides, the name of the show itself sounds like an invitation to travel to the country of Hindi films.
Since then, the dance company has visited many countries: Canada, the USA, Japan, China Germany, Russia and so on!
Of course, you can’t help thinking of Bharati, but contrary to this huge industry, Ticket to Bollywood shows fewer dancers, -about fifteen – and there is no storytelling. However, the dancers have the same energy and the same talent. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The steps are typical of Bollywood dancing and the songs chosen have been taken from recent Bollywood blockbusters such as: Devdas, Om Shanti Om, Singham, Desi Boyz or Bodyguard.
Take a look at the picture I took yesterday.
