The dance style derived its name from the Indian movie industry Bollywood, a combination of the city of millions Bombay and Hollywood. In Bollywood movies, singing and dancing are essential elements, which tell parts of the story. Bollywood Dance is a blend of classical and folk dance from India, and western styles like R&B and hip hop. Expression is key: in dance, but also in clothing. On the vibrant music, people dance in colourful traditional Indian outfits.

Nimmi learnt Indian classical dance (bharatnatyam) in India and took Bollywood dance classes all throughout high school. She started performing Bollywood dance at a young age.
