America’s first Indian-born Miss America Nina Davuluri’s performance in the Miss America pageant has inspired people as far away as South Beach to try their hand at a little Bollywood glamour. The multi-talented pageant queen’s influence has led to a demand for Bollywood-fusion inspired dance classes from the hip denizens of South Beach.

The New York beauty used these same dance moves to help her win the Miss America pageant and dance instructors now show them to their mixed-race classes to women ranging in age from their teens to their 70’s.

Although some of the members of these Bollywood fusion dance classes are Indian-Americans looking to rediscover their Indian roots, many of the class members are not Indian American and half of them are Latinas who appreciate the sexy moves Ms. Davuluri displayed during the pageant.

Here’s a look at her dance routine during the pageant:

Miss Davuluri seems set on attending med-school, but maybe her mind will change if Bollywood comes calling.
