Bollywood Dancing is emerging as new favorite talent/ hobby among the young kids, teens and adults alike. There are many forms of Bollywood Dancing which are getting popular in the dance studios and centers. Bollywood is the informal name given to the popular Mumbai-based Hindi language film industry in India. The dances are a fusion of traditional and classical Indian dances with the influence of some jazz, hip-hop and modern dance. Timing and Rhythm, energy, and controlled expressive steps are the important elements of Bollywood Dancing!
From the olden days to date, there has been a massive change in the Bollywood dance styles. Earlier the foot work and the movements were subtle and incorporated folk, western (as seen in the old Indian black and white films) and classical dancing. However, in recent times, women especially have been given a bold look and there is the merging of discotheque sequences and steps that are very typical of Bollywood dancing. The craze for this song and dance routine is such that there are special live and television shows for Bollywood dance fans to show their talent.
Bollywood has emerged as a new dance genre which is growing in popularity which resulted in a vivacious performance by Miss America on the stage where the whole America was watching her live. It is great form of expression, fitness, diversity of Indian culture, fusion of many dance forms and takes lot of discipline to master like any other talent or skill.
