Dance Style

Workshop Description
(from Wikipedia) The film, music and dances in Bollywood films are a synthesis of formal and folk Indian traditional music and dance traditions, with the infusion of Western techniques. The dances on older Hindi movies represented supposed dances of the common people, although they involved original choerography. The Bollywood dances have evolved as a unique and energetic style. Since they are group dances, they are often used as joyful exercise music. The choreography of Bollywood dances takes inspiration from Indian folk dances, classical dances (like kathak) as well as disco and from earlier Hindi filmic dances.
