Karima Essa has been performing, choreographing and teaching Bollywood and Bhangra dance forms for children, youth and adults across the Lower Mainland for more than a decade. Karima's vision is to allow children to experience the pure magic and joy of dance and storytelling through the fun expressions and movement of Bollywood dance. Karima dresses up in full costume and performs a Bollywood dance followed by an interactive Bollywood dance workshop teaching popular moves from classic Bollywood movies in the last decade. Children are a special inspiration because they dance from the heart - and this is at the heart of every Bollywood Star!
“Karima Essa was fun, high energy and had our entire community audience engaged!” (Queensborough Community Centre)
“As a performer, Karima is the best combination: highly skilled and not-intimidating. Watching her perform inspires people from toddler to senior to join in, and Karima’s praise, levity and pure love keeps people dancing – and coming back for more.” (Kitsilano Community Centre)
