Bollywood Dance Featured at First Friday Series Oct. 5

9/27/2012 —

Penn State York’s First Friday continues on Friday, Oct. 5 with a Bollywood dance demonstration and participation at noon in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. The program is free and open to the public.

The term Bollywood is the name given to the Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry in India. The term Bollywood was created by combining Bombay, the city now called Mumbai, and Hollywood, the famous center of the United States film industry. Most films produced are musicals and Bollywood dance plays a big role in them.

The goal of the First Friday Series is to introduce people to a variety of cultures and diversity issues. The series is sponsored by the Penn State York Diversity Committee. Please bring your lunch and plan to take part in this informative program and learn some new dance moves. Drinks and light snacks will be available.
