Dhoonya Dance school and professional performance company is bringing its Bollywood-inspired dance moves to this year's NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo.

You can learn how to burn calories to the tune of fast-paced and energetic Bollywood -- that's India's Hollywood -- music at the DanceMetroDC booth. Instructors and members of the school will be performing at 10:53 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16 and Dhoonya reps will be on hand at the booth from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. that day.

The one-hour routine lends itself naturally to a great cardio workout, according to Dhoonya Dance managing director Kajal Mehta.

"It's a fun way to burn calories," Mehta adds.

And it's not just for adults. Children and teens can join in too.

The NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo runs Jan. 16 and 17 at the Washington Convention Center.
