Bharatanatyam, a pre-eminent Indian classical dance form presumably the oldest classical dance heritage of India, is regarded as mother of many other Indian classical dance forms. The theoretical base of this form traces back to Natya shastra.
According to the Hindu tradition, the name of the dance form was derived by joining two words, Bharata and Natyam where Natyam in Sanskrit means dance and Bharata is a mnemonic comprising bha, ra and ta which respectively means bhava that is emotion and feelings; raga that is melody; and tala that is rhythm. Thus, traditionally the word refers to a dance form where bhava, raga and tala are expressed.
Bollywood dance is the danceform used in the Indian films. It is a mixture of numerous styles. These styles include belly-dancing, kathak, Indian folk, Western popular and modern jazz. Collectively it could be termed as a freestyle dancing.
