What is Bollywood?

Bollywood dancing is the commercial name for modern Indian Dance. The unique style of dance has its roots in classical and folk dance with the occasional Latino and Arabic influence.

Bollywood is also the name given to the film industry in India which is considered to be the largest in the world producing the greatest number of titles each year.
More recently, films such as Slumdog Millionaire have helped to bring Indian films to the Western world.

Bollywood films use many songs and lots of dancers to help tell the stories.
The use of vibrant colours and modern Indian music make these films intoxicating.

Bollywood dancing is the style of dancing used in these successful Indian films and is now popular across the world.
