Here’s what they had to say afterwards.

Through Their Dances

I really wanted to pull together surprise dance choreography to songs that would be personally meaningful for my fiancé’s family but was at a loss on where to start. Before l I found BollyWed Dance, I was looking through bollywood videos online on youtube…! – Not helpful. The BollyWed choreographer took time to look through various song options, help me understand the lyrical meanings of the different ones, and discern which was most appropriate for each of the three dances we were choreographing, including pulling together a multi-song montage to hit a few different key genres and dance styles. Then, she prepared careful, line-by-line choreography that was visually impactful but easy for our multi-ages family team (from toddlers to 40-somethings!) to learn. She really distinguished herself by creating customized movements that matched each new lyrical line in the music, both in terms of the musical sound but also the specific meaning of the words… this is something very special that few choreographers take the time and care to do. Not only does it make for a unique dance sequence to distinguish from other weddings, but also it made it easier for the family to learn and memorize, as it matched the meaning of the lines in the songs and made it especially fun for the kids!

BollyWed staff helped come up with a mix of customized and pre-prepared choreography to stay within my budget – not upselling me but really a very trustworthy vendor to work with and help you get the most bang for your buck – this is invaluable! This was hands down the best part of the whole wedding weekend. The dances were all surprises and it really brought the crowd together and created a special feeling of unity in the room that everyone talked about afterwards. For my groom, the bridal dance really swept him away. For what I paid, the BollyWed dances brought many times more ambiance and meaning to the weekend celebration per dollar than any of the other line items. It was also the one thing most important to me – I guess this was my self-indulgent wedding wish list item that I did for me! And in addition to the groom, my parents and the groom’s parents were truly filled with ebullient joy by the dances, which was a priceless gift I’ll never regret 🙂 I honestly can’t say enough.

And we are not friends, I had no personal connections to the BollyWed staff, and yet they treated me with such care and love, I will remain forever grateful. Don’t skimp, and let yourself do this, it is a joy you will have for the rest of your life (just make sure someone videotapes it!)

My best friend was getting married in India and while thinking of what to do for his wedding, I realized I had to do the one thing that I detested – getting on the dance floor. Me and my other friends in Canada and Boston talked it over and we thought it was a good idea. It can’t be that hard to choreograph our own moves and just do them.

Somewhere in the middle of me attempting to be the girl in the dance and us switching songs for the 10th time because we still couldn’t get anything to work well, we realized we needed help and we needed it quick because the wedding was 2 weeks away. We contacted Mridul and she immediately jumped on the idea telling us that she’d have a dance video ready for us the next morning.

True to her promise, the next morning we got 2 videos from her – one a quick version of the entire dance, how it would finally look like and another which was a step-by-step breakdown of the different moves broken into 2 separate videos where she went really detailed into the steps. A little bit of back and forth and small changes to the steps – all of which Mridul was very receptive to, and we were ready to go. Also important to note that she was very open to any suggestions from us and it felt great to be able to make small modifications to the steps and she would redo the video with the new steps to show us newer versions whenever we made suggestions.

We practiced her steps for a few days ourselves and we were ready to perform! On the day of the Sangeet, I was surprised how well coordinated we all ended up being even though we had never practiced together. Mridul’s breakdown of the dance moves were perfect since they took into account having room for other dancers and also individual steps for individual dancers. I highly recommend Mridul and any BollyWed crew to anyone who needs to have their wedding dances choreographed – she is an amazing teacher and you will come out of it with some great memories and experiences!

Our guests were from all over the world and we did not know how to coordinate the sangeet performances until we found out about BollyWed Dance. We chose BollyWed firstly because Mridul was very understanding and cooperative, she knew exactly what we were expecting. We were also very impressed with the videos she sent us of the choreography. The best part about BollyWed was that they were able to keep in mind the different age groups and dance levels of each of the participants and come up with dances to fit each and everyones needs. We had no stress for the sangeet performances, the guests were amazed by how well organised everything was and the fun we had following the videos and learning each dance. It was definitely worth the money, this made our sangeet performances easy and stress free, we had 11 dances with over 120 participants and other than sending out the videos, we had no other stress or work to do regarding the sangeet because BollyWed Dance took care of everything.

We were getting married in India and wanted all our friends to participate in the Sangeet. The logistics were insane because everyone was sprawled all over the world. The choreographer we hired created a video of herself performing and sent it across. Many of our friends backed out quickly because of how daunting the video was– the moves looked complicated, it was too fast and difficult to learn from. Mridul quickly came to the rescue, she took initiative and redid the choreography, keeping in mind that our friends were not natural dancers. With the easy-to-follow instructions she provided, fun and enjoyable performances transpired at our Sangeet.

If it was not for her creative approach, our friends from Boston, Philadelphia, Canada, Nepal and Europe would have never come together on stage, that too with completely synchronized moves! Her amazing skills as a dancer and her enthusiasm is what made this a success. Being the bride, it was one less thing I had to worry about because Mridul handled it all exceptionally well. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to make their Sangeet or Wedding dances memorable.

We needed a music mix and simple but fun choreography for our first dance. We chatted first, seemed reliable and professional, saw example dances and decided to give it a try. BollyWed Dance had an extremely quick turnaround. We received very easy to follow tutorials, and when we wanted a change, it was made within a couple days. Great music mix (we just picked the songs), easy tutorials, simple but fun dance. We would highly recommend it! We were extremely busy with work and other wedding planning that we did not really have the time to choreograph a unique first dance. This service was easy to use and we had very easy tutorials to follow online. Totally worth it!

I had promised my best friend I would perform a dance at his Sangeeth – the only problem was I had no song or dance steps and only 2 weeks! Mridul came to the rescue by picking a song and choreographing the dance for me and my dance group (all beginners). The second challenge was that all of us were in difference cities in the US and would have only 2 days to practice together. Mridul recorded few short videos, with catchy dance move names, to help all of us learn the dance steps and also get an idea of where we would be on the stage. Despite the time crunch the whole experience was a lot of fun, made the wedding very memorable and I ended up making a new friend! I recommend Mridul/BollyWed to others in my situation as she is a great teacher who can relate to dancers of all skill levels and can choreograph for songs of different genres.

Mridul had gathered information from me (bride) of all the people that showed interested in performing. She then reached out to verify details and confirm who will perform then made a choreography video to distribute to different people, depending on which dances they will perform.

This is a very unique situation and the solution was great, because the couples friends do not know each other well. Mridul was able to gather people from both friend circles, as well as some family members and have them dance together. The instructions, and videos were clear and simple. It was up to the dancers to utilize the time and practice well. My situation was a bit more difficult since many of the dancers did not know each other at all – but ultimately we still had a wonderful performance at the wedding with people from Texas, Boston, California, New York and New Jersey!

I think it was a great experience to gather friends and relatives who may not be close or live in the same vicinity, but are interested in performing a dance for the bride and groom. It’s harder out of college to find time and people to practice with consistently, so this allows them to bridge the gap and still perform. I would definitely recommend this to others who want a very fun, diverse, and energetic wedding! Mridul can customize songs and dances to suit everyone’s needs and is very receptive of feedback, requests, recommendations and concerns.

Mridul’s charisma and passion for dance is unparalleled. Our experience with Mridul was fun, exciting and memorable. We wanted to perform at our best friend’s reception but couldn’t choreograph a dance that was easy and in sync with the song. We were overwhelmed but Mridul saved us from the embarrassment. With no time to spare, she choreographed and tutored a really cool Bollywood dance to my diverse group of friends with different dance abilities. We had a blast at the reception! The praises of our performance certainly took us by surprise. A huge THANKS to Mridul! Her dance tutorials are easy to learn and follow. Her ability to simplify complex dance moves really turned the experience into fun and enjoyable. If you’d love to perform at a wedding but overwhelmed by the choreography, I highly recommend you get in touch with BollyWed Dance.

I was at a friend’s wedding and was asked to dance for the Sangeet. I hadn’t performed on stage since I was a lot younger so I was very nervous. Mridul made it so the steps were easy to learn and memorize. She first tries to understand your body and then choreographs the dance according to what works best with your body type/skill level. Her dance breakdown was very easy to follow. She’s really invested. She wants every dance to be perfect and she’ll work with you the whole way. Honestly it should have been stressful because we had less than a few hours for the dance to be choreographed, practiced and memorized but we ended up having so much fun! I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to get a dance performance done, I wish we had found Mridul much earlier than the last day!
