  Bollywood dancing 27 December 2004  
Why it has become so popular

One of the more surprising universal hits in the dance world of recent years is Bollywood appealing not only to devotees of Indian cinema, but audiences in the West End and people who want to learn.

Honey Kalaria is an actor, model and dancer. Seven years ago she launched Britain's first modern Indian dance academy with four students in her father's garage. She now has 700 students and runs classes in seven locations around London. 600 of them took part in the smash hit film, Khabbi Khushi Khabbi Ghan.

So could this be the 21st century Fame school? Sarah Woolman went to one of her classes in Manor Park to find out.
