Bollywood Dance

Music and dance is an essential ingredient of Bollywood films (a reference to the Indian film industry). The dances combine Indian classical and western styles expressing the inner emotions of the dancer. It has universal appeal due to its combination of styles making it fun and accessible for all levels of ability.

Despite the ambiguity surrounding the exact origins and influences of Bollywood dance and also the extremely varied styles throughout the genre, it is still immediately recognisable. As the steady progress of western culture imposes itself onto the East it is nice to see that (other than by food, yoga and holistic sciences) the west is also slowly but surely getting influenced by Hindi music and  Bollywood-dance especially Western dances like  Hip-Hop and Pop.
