Iconic India

Whether it’s the lyrical movements of classical Indian dance or today’s hip-hop take on the wildly popular Bollywood genre, dance is, without a doubt, one of the great visual icons of India. Ancient genres with religious roots, like Bharatanatyam and Kathak, and evolving forms, like Bhangra and Bollywood, flourish in the South Asian country. From movements rooted in the Hindu faith to choreography that blends in outside influences, CNN takes the pulse of India’s dance scene on the street, in the temple and for the stage—with the guidance of esteemed dancers and choreographers like Saroja Vaidyanathan, Shiamak Davar, the Desi Hoppers, and more.
