The Miss America pageant might have had people watching for the swimsuit portion, but after Miss New York won there seems to be a new interest in dancing. Miss America Nina Davuluri decided to dance for the talent portion of the competition and her moves were a fusion of Bharatanatyam and Bollywood dance. As most dance lovers know, classes teaching the Bollywood moves are tough to get into because of interest prior to the Miss America Pageant, but it might be even harder now. On Tuesday Miss America shared with the audience of Live! With Kelly and Michael a few basic moves and the video has gone viral.
"I am going to teach you," said Miss America Nina Davuluri on Live! With Kelly and Michael. "First things first, You have to take your shoes off.” Giving step-by-step instructions, the newly crowned winner showcased a few fun moves that the hosts quickly picked up.
The grace and movements shown by Miss America Nina Davuluri on stage was extremely different when compared to other contestants. Opening up a whole new dance form, the last time there was this much interest in the Bollywood format it was Selena Gomez who shared a few moves performing live on TV during her single Come And Get It.
Thanks to the Miss America performance, it appears that Bollywood dance is trending again in America. Take a look at the video clip of Miss America Nina Davuluri giving a few dance tips on live TV. She looks happy to share her heritage with others!
