The Ignite Story

“I breathe, I dance.”
Jagriti Bhatia
Founder, Ignite Bollywood Dance Company

I grew up as an introverted child, watching Bollywood movies and dancing in my living room as my parents worked hard running an Indian restaurant.

I think my passion for dance was realised at the age of six, when I gathered a group of fellow students at my school, most of them a few grades higher than me. Together we danced to “beat it” by Michael Jackson at school assembly.

My sense of adventure and curiosity has seen me through many experiences: a few business degrees, leadership development, training facilitation, making films, travelling to over 28 countries and 71 cities, exploring spirituality, yoga, tantra, meditation, dance and human behaviour.

I’ve always wanted to make a difference and inspire others and I guess Ignite Bollywood is my humble way of making the world a better place.

I previously owned a Bollywood dance company that was entirely about fitness based classes. This felt too ‘on-the-surface’. It was during my work with non-profit organisation Atma Mumbai in 2009, that I awakened to the possibilities of Bollywood dance as more than just a fitness or weight loss exercise.

I witnessed the powerful and therapeutic impact Bollywood dance had on its participants. It was not simply an exercise for the body, but a renewal of the spirit.

The humble dance students, mostly timid women and young orphans from Mumbai slums, completely shed their inhibitions, connected with each other and transformed into empowered, confident individuals full of potential.

There was laughter and high-fives all around. Everyone was beaming and the cause of this was a little hip swinging and shoulder shrugging.

So simple yet so profound.

This experience inspired me to create Ignite Bollywood Dance Company, to help people of any age, gender or background “light up with dance!”

Many believe that transformation is a long, drawn out process. I believe that often, it is right there in front of us, if only we allow it.

I welcome you to join my Bollywood movement and let us spread more joy, colour and laughter in this beautiful world.
