Dancing like no one is watching has possibly never been more achievable than during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

And because our This Girl Can – Victoria campaign is all about encouraging women to get active no matter what they look like, or whether they know all the moves, it could be the perfect time to give a new activity a go, or get back into doing some physical activity after a break.

So if you’re in need of a feel-good activity that you can do while you’re staying at home, we encourage you to give Jagriti’s Bollywood dance moves a shot.


They can all be done at home in your backyard, kitchen, living room or bedroom.

And the moves are suitable for a beginner, or someone with “two left feet”, as Jagriti says in the video.

If you have kids at home with you, they can join in – Jagriti says kids always love moves like ‘chicken wings’, ‘shoo the flies’ and ‘pat the dog’!

 

We bet you won’t be able to do the whole 30-minutes without breaking into a big grin, which is a great way to look after your mental health and wellbeing while you’re staying at home.

Trying some new dance moves or any other form of exercise is a great way to boost how you feel physically and mentally.

So follow this 30-minute online Bollywood dance tutorial by our This Girl Can – Victoria ambassador to add some energy and movement into your home.
