Khushi Does Bollywood: FAQs

What is Khushi Does Bollywood all about?

Khushi Does Bollywood is an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest Bollywood dance. To do this, we need people of all ages, dancers and those who have never danced before, to sign up for a fantastic day out with a difference. That means YOU! Find out more here.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. It's free. We are hoping that everyone who takes part will make a donation to Khushi Feet to support the work of the schools for street children in Kolkata. Maybe £2, or perhaps something more generous. No hard sell, though!

Do I have to dance?

We can't make you. But our experience has been that Bollywood is infectious, and this dance is designed to appeal to all ages and be suitable even for people who have never danced before. Ever. So surprise yourself!

I’m not a dancer so will I be able to do it?

Yes! Yes! Yes! We've seen Ash leading workshops, and before very long even the most unlikely people who have never danced before, or even dreamed that they could, are joining in. Bollywood is infectious! It's irresistible! We can't say this enough, you can do it. Just be prepared to give it a go and surprise yourself. In our Step-By-Step Tutorial, the moves are broken down one by one. On the day it will be possible to follow Ash and the dance leaders.

Do I need to know the dance before the day?

No. It is easy to pick up, and will be taught to everyone at 2pm on the afternoon of Khushi Does Bollywood. On the other hand, Ash Mukherjee teaches the dance on video here, so you can learn it in advance if you want to.

How good do I need to be?

Just do it to the best of your ability. That's all we ask.

What will happen on the day?

Full event information and timings can be found here.  

Do I need to register?

No, but registration is fast and free. It helps us manage the event and it helps you on the day. Just show us your registration ticket on the day and we will fast track your entry.

How do I register?

Use the form on the Registration page. You can register up to 6 people at a time, but please include details of each individual. Under 11s will need their own registration ticket, but should be registered by an adult.

What information is required?

Just a name and an email address. Don't worry, we won't pass your details on to anyone else.

What if I’m coming in a group?

You still need to register individually. If you are coming as part of group, then choose your group from the drop down list on the registration form. If you are the first of your group to register, then please add the name of your group for others to find.

Where is ‘Khushi Does Bollywood’ being held?

The Abbey School, Faversham. Please aim to arrive in good time. Car parking is available and free, and the school is easily accessible by road via the M2 and M20, though we are asking people local to Faversham to walk wherever possible. The railway station is within ten minutes walk.

What do I need to wear?

Bollywood is a fusion of Indian and western styles. No particular dress is required, but choose something bright, colourful and comfortable!
