About This Category

Dancing has been ingrained in Indian culture for more than 5,000 years. Early artifacts such as figurines of dancing women, serve as evidence that Indian dancing has a long history of significance in Indian culture. Indian dancing has deep roots in religion. The three most well recognized Indian gods (Shiva, Kali, and Krishna) are usually depicted in the midst of a dance. There are even styles of dance named after these deities, including the Shaivite tradition and Vaishniava tradition of dance.

India is well known for many forms of dance, including theatre-style, classical, temple, folk, and modern dance style techniques. The most common style of dance in India, classical dance, is actually known as natya, which is best described as a blend of dramatic, theater elements and dance forms. Natya is currently used to describe eight dance/theater forms: kathakali, kathak, sattriya, mohiniattam, Manipuri, kuchipudi, odissi, and bharatanatyam. Dance in India has been influenced by the popularity of Bollywood. The dance sequences depicted in Bollywood films are usually classical Indian dancing forms or based on a style of folk dancing. Much like western musicals, the main characters in Bollywood films will perform elaborate dance sequences both solo, in pairs, and with the troupe of supporting actors and actresses. In item numbers, an unknown character, usually a beautiful woman, will perform a solo dance routine in the middle of the film. Today’s Bollywood movies pair traditional Indian dancing side by side with pop music dance sequences popularized in the U.S. – Bollywood producers even release music videos to accompany the soundtrack to their films.
