    The 50-minute workout keeps participants moving using Bhangra dance, as well as traditional Indian-style folk dances.

    Classes are offered at various gyms across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

    "It improves your mood, you feel refreshed. You want to come back for more," said Nisha Ala, group fitness instructor.

    She said participants can burn 500 to 900 calories in a class and it's designed for everyone, no matter their fitness level.
