Lead Cardio Bollywood Instructor
Stephanie Marrow has been dancing since she was 4 yrs old, but began semi professionally when she first started teaching Dance Fitness in 2014. After being certified in Zumba, Stephanie quickly became interested in learning and teaching other forms of dance. Enter Namrata, who at the time was currently looking for some dancers as well as instructors for her Bollywood Dance company.
She began dancing with BnBDance in 2015, doing various different classes including Cardio Bollywood, Bollywood Zumba, and Choreography classes. I have been trained under Namrata with various Bollywood and Semi-Bollywood steps and love her choreography and creativity. I am now part of their dance team and we perform at various events, the most recent being Three and a Half Acres Yoga's Taste of India Benefit at Red Rooster in Harlem. I also teach the private Bollywood adult and kids classes at various locations and get inspired by the energy dance can create.
"I love Bollywood, and I love my BnBDance team!"
