Feb Foodbank Fundraiser 2022

Thanks to our wonderful dance community, we raised $160 for Foodbank Victoria over the 4 FREE online classes in Feb. Every $1 provides 2 meals and so this means we helped provide 320 meals through this effort. We are grateful to each and every one of you who donated and/or spread the word about the classes and fundraiser to help achieve this!


March IWD 2022 Fundraiser for UN Women Australia 

Our March focus was what is happening in Ukraine. International Women’s Day is on 8th March, so we usually fundraise for that each year. So, this year, we raised $625 in 5 weeks – profits from our March classes (Wednesdays – online or in-person) plus donated fees from our teaching staff, to UN Women’s Emergency Appeal for Ukraine.


June Charity Donation to Kind Hearted Lankans to help Sri Lanka

We donated $300 to Kind Hearted Lankans this June.

We have been watching what has been happening in Sri Lanka with much sadness and after fundraising in Feb for Foodbank and in March for UN Women we didn’t get another round sorted in time to help what is The Motherland for some of us Jhoomies.

So we decided on doing it this way.

Thanks to our dance community who regularly attend the classes and/or help promote us ❤ and the teachers and TAs whose talent and passion keep us going.🤗

And because we used Humanitix, all proceeds from class booking fees they charged are going to charities for disadvantaged kids!


Bollywood is the Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry in India. It is one of the largest film producers in the world, producing more than 1,000 films a year and reaching a wider audience than Hollywood.

Bollywood movies are famous for their colourful and elaborate dance sequences which are dynamic, energetic and tongue-in-cheek. The style is theatrical in nature and is a mixture of Modern Indian, Bhangra and Arabic while also including Western influences like Hip Hop, Jazz and Funk.


Ever watched Bride & Prejudice, Monsoon Wedding, The Guru, Slumdog Millionaire or any Bollywood movies and wished you too could dance like that? Join our weekly classes and learn  to embody that fun and drama with Jhoom-Bollywood Dance Company and release the Bollywood star within you.
