Save costs if you have a limited school budget!
Searching for school activities in Melbourne? Booking a Bollywood incursion means that we come to you and give your students a fun and interactive learning experience that doesn’t cost you unnecessary time, money and hassle. Instead of dragging your students to an excursion outside the school, where you have to keep an eye on them and constantly worry about losing them, let us come in and take the pressure off you. You also save unnecessary bus and public transport costs and you can totally relax and enjoy the fun while we take charge.
A fun way to learn about India
Our Bollywood dance workshops for school kids are more than just a dance class because they offer a fun and colourful way to explore the Indian culture and get active at the same time.
Instil important values!
These interactive and highly engaging sessions impart valuable lessons in confidence, respect and teamwork. They also instil important human values of diversity, self-confidence, friendship and mutual respect. We ensure a safe and judgement-free environment to allow children to shine and express themselves openly.
Tailored to your learning objectives
Dance can play a pivotal role in learning because of its power to engage children with all types of learning styles. Since dance involves visual, auditory and kinaesthetic elements, it is a tool that can deepen one’s learning experience of almost any subject matter.
Our professional Bollywood dance instructors can vary the style of workshop based on your objectives.
Dance and Your Curriculum
The reason why this is one of the best school activities in Melbourne is because we will first consult with you to develop a lesson plan relevant to your class. Then our professional Bollywood dance instructor will deliver an informative and entertaining dance workshop that addresses your chosen learning outcome within the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS).
We can help achieve learning objectives in any of the three strands:
- Physical, personal and social learning
- Discipline-based learning (i.e. Arts, English, humanities, math and science)
- Inter-disciplinary learning

"We really enjoyed your visit and the beautiful costumes you were all wearing. The children were instantly interested because of the way you presented yourselves. I was impressed with your behaviour management skills (as these can sometimes be a little off for other incursions we hold). Children were engaged for the duration of the session and you assisted this by giving them small amounts of information at a time rather than over loading them with too much. It was great that you could adapt the lesson to suit our needs so that children weren’t hearing the same information again. Your session was particularly wonderful for our large bunch of lively boys who were able to move and dance for much of the session. It was an excellent incursion that I would recommend for any school teaching an Indian Unit."
"The Ignite team were both informative and engaging, and the students had a ball. It was a great consolidation of their study of ancient India, making connections with modern India and popular culture. Jag in particular has a fantastic manner with young people and the students responded to her positively and enthusiastically! Thank you so much for coming to our school."
"Thank you so much for the fabulous two day workshop you did for the Grades 3,4,5 and 6’s at our school. It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm of all the students, in particular the way you were able to engage the boys as they are not always responsive to dance. The kids are still talking about your visit and the Performance piece you prepared for us is sure to be a hit!"
"Our students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the performance given by Ignite Bollywood Dance Company as part of our Harmony Day celebrations on 22nd March, 2013. The fabulous music, costumes and interactive format was very engaging and entertaining throughout. Jagriti and her team were very competent and friendly, and I would highly recommend them for any school or community event."
