The popularity of Bollywood is growing in Britain with school children taking lessons to learn Bollywood-style dancing.

In one of the many such events taking place across Britain, 15 teenagers turned out for a workshop on Bollywood dancing at Corsham near Bath. The highlight was a chance to learn Bollywood-style dancing with professional artist Dattar Singh.

Angela Stribling, youth arts co-ordinator for the Wiltshire Arts Partnership, said: "Bollywood dancing is really popular these days, and it is really good fun for the youngsters."

The teenagers were also given the opportunity to cook an Indian feast for their lunch.

Chef Bhazana Mistry talked the youngsters through the basics of making scrumptious samosas and onion bhajis.

Pandit Kamlesh, a priest at the Hindu Temple in Bristol, was also on hand to lead an art workshop.

Participants were introduced to Rangoli, an ancient Indian art form traditionally used to decorate walls, courtyards and places of workshop.

The Aug 12 activity day was organised after a similar successful Asian workshop in Westbury.

"The day in Westbury proved really popular," said Stribling.
