decor, vibrant and energetic movements and of course an excuse to sweat those extra calories while dancing our hearts out. However, there is a genre of Bollywood that is getting lost in the trends and vast globalisation of recent times. It is the quintessential essence of romance and love. Stories told through emotive movement and dance motifs are drawn from Indian Folk combined with music that evokes the sometimes subtle and nuanced and sometimes dramatic and extravagant expression of being in love itself.
We are in this moment imagining a particular song, O Re Piya from the movie Aaja Nachale, that would be a perfect example of this. Here the song itself can be interpreted as being about the pangs of being in love and of separation but somehow also talks of a woman and her intense love for dancing itself. These songs often become threads that bind the fabric of the story. Here we see the characters dancing to really a catchy songs, but they are inherently telling us stories of what can only be expressed through these representations of music and dance, bringing the emotions to life in their rendering.
Our online Bollywood dance classes are trying to bring this experience to everyone at their home. Let's, for some time, become a part of a new tale, let our bodies move to express and let's give in to our love for dance.
