Students Performing Kathak Dance at the Music Festival. We are a Classical Kathak Dance and Music School. We want to preserve and promote the Kathak Dance Form. All the Folk dances of India, as well as Semi classical dance on Bollywood songs, are taught.
Hindi dance songs are now widely heard around the world. They first became popular among overseas Indians and were eventually discovered by others.
The filmi music and dances in Bollywood films are a synthesis of formal and folk Indian traditional music and dance traditions, in fusion with Middle Eastern techniques. The dances in older Hindi movies represented supposed dances of the common people, although they involved original choreography. Bollywood dances have evolved into a unique and energetic style. Since they are group dances, they are often used as joyful exercise music. Bollywood dances usually follow film songs.
The choreography of Bollywood dances takes inspiration from Indian folk dances, classical dances (like kathak) as well as disco and from earlier Hindi filmi dances.
