Live Bollywood dance to take the stage at this year’s festival!

Dani-Jean Stuart and her Masala Bhangra students will give a presentation on Bollywood dancing.

New England Bollywood Film Festival is proud to announce that Masala Bhangra Workout instructor Dani-Jean Stuart and some of her students will take the stage for a LIVE Bollywood dance presentation at this year’s festival! The 30 minute presentation will take place around noon, during the break between the morning and afternoon film showings.

Masala means “spicy” in Hindi, while bhangra is a folk dance from the northern part of India.  Join in this fun fusion of bhangra and Bollywood-style choreography, developed by Sarina Jain and led by Dani-Jean. This fun presentation will give you a great chance to get up and move after enjoying the morning films!

Dani-Jean is New Hampshire’s first certified Masala Bhangra Workout® instructor. She says she got sedentary (and larger)  for the two years after her elderly Doberman couldn’t trail run with her any more. The long time student of yoga fell in love with the Masala Bhangra Workout, but found there were no classes in New Hampshire. So she got certified to teach it so she could share the fun and inspire others on their own journey to get active and shed some size!

Whether you want to watch or maybe even shake it up a little, Bollywood style, Dani-Jean and her students at Masala Bhangra are going to help you sweat ..and you’re gonna LOVE it!

Noonan Arts becomes our first sponsor!

Poet Don Hall by Peter Noonan

Many thanks to Noonan Arts, this year’s first sponsor of our festival. Peter Noonan is an award-winning magazine illustrator, caricaturist, fine artist and the owner of Noonan Arts design firm.

A Manchester, New Hampshire native, Peter enjoys biking, hiking, Masterpiece Theater and the novels of William Boyd. He was a professional ski instructor for 15 years and has been writing and drawing cartoons about politics since his days on the junior high school newspaper. Peter’s interest in the New Hampshire Primary and Presidential politics dates back to a 1987 campaign rally, when he presented then-Vice President George Bush with a pencil drawing of him; whereupon Bush responded: “Is this supposed to be me?!”.

Peter is still getting over it.

His works are to be found in private and public collections throughout New Hampshire – including the NH State House, Concord – and the United States, as well as numerous publications. He currently has an exhibit at Kimball Jenkins School of Art in Concord.

For the New England Bollywood Festival, Noonan Arts will be doing our graphics, logos and poster designs! You can visit his website here: Noonan Arts
