Marymount College has, for several years now, called on the services of Francesca from Fusion Beats to conduct Bollywood Workshops for its Year 7 class groups.Francesca has been very personable and flexible in dealing with the constraints of our timetable and the students have enjoyed the “Bollywood experience” that Francesca so skilfully provides.As a middle school for girls, the opportunity that these workshops offer for the students to physically express themselves via dance, Bollywood style, is as challenging as it is enriching as it is just plain fun.We certainly look forward to a continued association with Francesca in the coming years.

We were very lucky at Port Adelaide Enfield Library Services to have a Bollywood session run by Francesca of Fusion Beats.

Semaphore Library was treated to wonderful and enthusiastic dancing. Francesca was fantastic. She was professional and easy to work with in the lead up to the event. Everybody who participated had a great time and she managed to get all ages up to dance.

We would be very happy to have Francesca here again for another session.

Francesca has delivered Bollywood dance lessons at Glenunga International High School to our Year 8 Physical Education classes for the past 4 years. Her high quality and engaging lessons build on the students individual skills in a simple and friendly delivery style. Sequential skill development with simplified instructions enable all class members to develop Bollywood dance routines that combines various movement patterns using rhythmic traditional music.

Francesca’s classes are always the best received dance lessons by GIHS students and HPE teachers. The smiles and total involvement of her classes is testament to her expertise in teaching.
