Desi Dances

The council invites everyone over 65 years to put on your dancing shoes and join in desi dancing. No experience is necessary.

Desi dancing

Desi dances are a mixture of many different dance styles including classical Indian dance, street, jazz and others. The music is usually very lively and with a strong beat, which makes the classes energetic and lots of fun for beginners to learn some steps or intermediates to dance along with difference skills and techniques. 

Hillingdon Council would like to ensure Hillingdon residents have priority bookings so a membership scheme has been put in place. Hillingdon residents can book themselves and up to three guest for free when booking.
