THE team at Nationwide Building Society of Swindon recently celebrated Diwali with a memorable Bollywood twist.

About 100 staff from Nationwide’s head office in Swindon gathered to celebrate the Indian festival – also known as the festival of lights.

A sumptuous Indian dinner was followed by entertainment in the form of Bollywood, Bhangra and Gujarati Dandiya dancing.

K’z Dance Entertainment, headed by Kalpesh Zalavadiya, wowed the audience by performing ‘Nagada Sang Dhol Baje’ a famous Indian song.

Kalpesh also choreographed a Bollywood-themed workshop and the corporate conference room turned into a dance-floor as everyone learned the steps to the beats of ‘Jai Ho.’ They went on to perform dances in harmony in pairs and groups using ‘Dandiya’ sticks.

“The evening was a great celebration of team diversity and unity, something that Nationwide people do really well,” said Roshni Bhogaita, from kz Dance.
