the dance complex
Nazar is a dance company whose dance background include South Asian classical, folk, fusion, and western styles such as jazz, and contemporary. Nazar performs at large events, community and corporate events, weddings, festivals, and more.
The goal of tryouts is to build our team and get some great new dance talent from the Boston community! We plan to teach choreo and eventually have the team perform at our annual South Asian Showdown (1000 person attendance!), community events, and corporate events. We are the first independent Bollywood team of MA and we look forward to attracting great talent!
“Bollywood” is the popularly used term for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai. Over time, the vivid song and dance numbers from Hindi films gave rise to a new style of dance: a mixture of classical and folk dance styles from the Indian subcontinent, fused with western influences.
Having some dance experience is great as we will incorporate different styles of dance into our choreography. For tryouts, just come ready to dance!
Dates: August 7th and August 14th
Time: 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
