Searches for Bollywood dance instructors on Thumbtack have increased six-fold from last year.

"Bollywood dance is ... fun and the costumes are beautiful. So more people are becoming attracted to it," said Mollie Singh, a Seattle-based program manager for Dell and Bollywood dance teacher.

Singh, who charges $18 to $40 an hour, has been teaching Bollywood dance in Seattle since 2008. She also teaches and manages a Bollywood dance troupe that has performed in corporate events at Microsoft and Boeing.

"My classes are growing. My troupe is getting more work. I could potentially do this fulltime if I wanted to," she said.
