"On Friday, 19th October, 2012 Hard Rock Cafe Dubai hosted their annual PINKTOBER® together for the first time with the annual Zumbathon® to raise money for two breast cancer charities.
As a special guest, U.A.E. Masala Bhangra® Ambassador, Maria Koursaris Cornelisse was invited to introduce something different to offer to the people….Masala Bhangra®.
"Masala" means spicy in Hindi, and Bhangra is the folk dance of the northern State of India, Punjab. Masala Bhangra® is an Indian dance based workout fused with the spice of Bollywood and the folk of Bhangra making this an exhilarating workout where one can burn more than 500 calories in one hour. Participants are shrugging their shoulders, clapping their hands, stomping their feet to the beat of the Dhol drum which makes you feel like you are at an Indian wedding and simply celebrating life. Everybody shouted "Balle! Balle!" as they were overjoyed with this new Masala Bhangra® experience.
Creator and founder, Sarina Jain, is based in New York, also known as the "Jane Fonda of India."
