Indian Dance is one of the key dance cultures which has made it a remarkable industry all over the world. Classical dance also known as South Asian Cultural dance, has found its place for its unique technique, storytelling aspects and culturally bound traditions. Today in India we have 8 recognized classical dance forms and many folk forms. Indian dancers are finding new ways to interject the westernized techniques to co-create their own format, because of which, we also represent the world’s best contemporary and best class oriental performers across the globe. To celebrate the spirit of this vast culture.
