Get off the sofa!

And learn the ending dance from Slumdog Millionaire! Video here. My favorite thing about this, other than giving me a chance to look slightly less idiotic, is how teacher Marshie Perera Rajakumar puts the moves in terms of a Bollywood hero - which is how I imagine Sunny Deol learning his choreography, especially that stomp-dance thing he does in Jeet. "Sunny, now, imagine you're a Bollywood hero...yes, you can imagine you are your dad...as a lumberjack squashing a bug that is threatening to ruin your picnic with Karisma."

Does anyone else remember the late-night tv ads for an instructional dance video during the Back Street Boys era called Darren's Dance Grooves, for which one of the promotional points was "I [Darren] break it down, so you can dance along"?

It sounds interesting. But I am not sure how my downstairs neighbours would react to me doing any vigorous dancing upstairs.

So, somthing to keep in mind the next time I am flat-hunting.

Beth what do you think of the bollywood style dance done at the Jay Leno Show with A R Rehman performing?

Squeeeal! Beth - Bollywood loves you right back :) You really should come back to Melbourne some time!
Gebruss - Marshie is my dance teacher and I prance around all the time regardless of the neighbours, although I have had a couple of conversations along the lines of "Oh, you're not Indian...from all the music we thought um....".
