The most popular dance form in 


It had been so long,I have not done a Did You Know post. So here it is. Today I will be talking about the most popular dance styles in India.
Talking in general, whenever it is asked, what is the most popular dance form in India, you get an answer like, hip-hop or contemporary. As seen most of the times on television, movies, and dance shows, contemporary and hip hop is pretty famous. However if it is specifically asked about indian dance then Bharatnatyam and Kathak are the most famous dance forms. Hip hop and contemporary aren't indian dance styles however they have gained a lot of popularity now-a-days. The foreign dance forms started appearing in India ever since late 80's and 90's. With the entry of the colored movies in the industry, the dance performed on the songs also started changing, however it was not so popular then

  Now you will find that in every movie we have a little blend of contemporary, hip hop and salsa.
Now if we talk about indian dances, they were always popular. Even in black and white movies, only classical dance could be seen. Only sometimes, some Bollywood dance could be seen.
If course, this was obvious because these are indian dance styles.In the movie Devdas, only classical and Bollywood dance is seen. Bollywood dance is seen in just one or two songs but otherwise Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai performed only Kathak. This movie was released in the beginning of the twenty dancing century and was super hit too.
Thus by all this discussion, what I can conclude is that, Bharatnatyam and Kathak are evergreen dance styles however in the new era, hip hop, contemporary, ballroom dance are also becoming popular.
