India and Indians are not lagging behind in any field as they are very sincere people, hard-working, talented and very well educated too. Indians are well placed all over the globe in good jobs and doing very well in the various fields like medicine,education, hospitality,business,entertainment industry,sports and so on. The list is undoubtedly end less. Very recently, Indian youths are showing keen interest in international forms of dancing. There has been revolution in the various dance forms which have become very popular here and more and more students are getting enrolled in the international dancing glasses.
I would also like to mention some great Indian forms of dances which are equally popular here like Kathak,Bharatnatyam, Kucchipudi and of course dancing on Bollywood numbers are again very popular here. Jive, bachata, merengue, hip-hop and rock-n-roll — do these words ring a bell? Thanks to reality shows, these western dance forms have become a rage in cities and Indians know there is more to shaking a leg than just the Latino salsa! People now want to experiment and are willing to learn new dance forms. Salsa is not completely out but, yes, people are showing enthusiasm in other dance forms also – something that was not there earlier. “People have done so much of salsa that now they are bored of it and want to try something new and different. Hence, they are going for jive, bachata, merengue and other dance forms.
The dance reality shows on television like “Nach Baliye” and “Jhalak Dikhla Ja” have created awareness about new dance forms and people are thronging dance schools to learn them. These days youngsters are big fan of these reality shows. Such dance shows educate them about the existing forms of western dances. As they want to learn dancing but don’t know which form to opt for. These shows helped them to choose the right dance of their choice. Bachata, merengue, salsa and jive are popular in the age group of 18-35, whereas cha cha, samba, rumba, the waltz and tango are popular among people over 40 years old. Sonia Jaffar, the winning choreographer of season three of “Jhalak Dikhla Ja”, says people have misconceptions that bachata, merengue and rumba are new dance forms.
