You’re getting tired of the regular routine when you go on a gym, hear the same music over and over again while doing the same steps, well in Bollywood dance class, you’ll be amaze of how eccentric the famous Indian dance is.
Dance in India comprises numerous styles of dances, generally classified as classical or folk. As with other aspects of Indian culture, different forms of dances originated in different parts of India, developed according to the local traditions and also imbibed elements from other parts of the country.
The presentation of Indian dance styles in film, Hindi Cinema, has exposed the range of dance in India to a global audience. Dance in early Hindi films was primarily modelled on classical Indian dance styles such as Kathak, or folk dancers. Modern films often blend this earlier style with Western dance styles (MTV or in Broadway musicals), though it is not unusual to see western choreography and adapted classical dance numbers side by side in the same film. That’s when Bollywood Dance was born.
The dances in Bollywood can range from slow dancing, to a more upbeat hip hop style dance. The dancing itself is a fusion of all dance forms. It could be Indian classical, Indian folk dance, belly dancing, jazz, hip hop and everything else you can imagine
