Hi, my name is Swati Chaturvedi and I created CBDP in 2009 as a means for community outreach; to bring light and joy through the power of connection, dance, and storytelling. Showcasing Indian culture while celebrating diversity, I use Bollywood Dancing as a vehicle to bring people together.
Swati grew up in India, on a staple diet of Bollywood movies. The fun and upbeat music from these films is a vibrant part of everyday life in India, and dancing to this music is an integral part of the Indian experience for any dance enthusiast!
“The program was a pleasure to host at The Wilmington Public Library! I appreciated the intermittent discussions on cultural holidays, different terms, and dance styles. Of course, hearing a discussion on learning about different cultures and embracing new activities together was inspiring too! ”

“I really loved the Bollywood dancing session. It was very informative, but was also fun and expressive. I’d like to attend more sessions and incorporate it into my life!”
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for creating such a unique, fun, & loving environment for the parents of our guests at Night To Shine. You & your team went above & beyond when it came to helping us as a church accomplish our mission of loving people 🙂 Thank you for what you do to bring life & smile to those around you!
