What is Bollywood?
The term Bollywood was created by combining two names, Bombay (the city now called Mumbai in India) and Hollywood. Bollywood based in Mumbai (Bombay), has become internationally popular that it now has its own entry in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Bollywood Dance Form – An International Sensation!!!
It is not unusual to see Western pop and pure classical dance numbers side by side in Bollywood file. The international appeal of Bollywood dancing is something that has been in the making for many decades. Originally it was found only in places that had a significant consumption of Indian films. But today it is rising in popularity in the US, Canada and Europe. With the success of films such as the Oscar winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire”, Bollywood films and dance have taken the world by storm and now has come into the global spotlight. Much of this is due to the ever expanding Indian diaspora, but a significant proportion also comes from non-Indians who are fascinated by the exotic, larger than life qualities inherent in it. Stars like Madonna, Shakira & Britney Spears have incorporated the Bollywood style of dance or music into their songs, videos & stage shows.
Currently Bollywood Dance has flavor of Indian classical, folk & contemporary and is still influenced by Western culture, perhaps even more so today than when it began. Bollywood dance form brings its own fun and fitness along with dance. Evolution of Bollywood Dance is a process that is entirely Indian and yet cross-cultural at the same time.
