    BOLLYWOOD DAYS: A fashion show, a comedy event, and several teams competing for the festival crown are part of Bollywood America 2011the three-day festival that's taking place in San Diego from Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23. A dance workshop is also on the roster; participants will be taught by a trio of choreographers, and will walk (or perhaps shimmy) away knowing a short and lively routine (so, expect to learn about 30 to 45 seconds worth of moves).

    DANCE COMPETITION: If you love dance but would rather see it than try your hands and hips at it, the mondo contest will be going down at Copley Hall. Teams from across the U.S. and Canada will be competing (including a few from Berkeley) on Saturday, April 23. The events during the festival are ticketed separately, so best decide what you definitely want to take in and go from there.
