An Evening to Rock - Dance India Dance S-4 and Indiblogger Meet

'O Traveler, why do you walk to seek an insight into a culture's soul,
when you can simply sit and observe the way they dance'

Dance is a rythmic form of movement (to the sound of music) which can depict a past event, emotions, social interaction e.t.c. in a spiritual or performance setting. It is an intrinsic part of the culture of India. There are numerous types of Dance Forms in India with some of the most well known being Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Kathak, Kathakali e.t.c. Each of these dance forms provide an insight into the culture and history of India.

But along with time dance forms have also modernized themselves to reflect the present times. Many modern dance forms have come forward like Ballet, Blues, Break Dancing e.t.c. apart from the folk and classical dance forms which continue to be appreciated worldwide.

With the onset of Television, dance (in all its forms) has also got its own share of spotlight and one of the biggest shows in India which promotes Dance like anything is DANCE INDIA DANCE (which is now in its fourth season). It comes on Zee TV, one of the most premier TV channels in India. This time Dance India Dance is coming with a new panel of judges namely Mudassar Khan, Shruti Merchant and Feroz Khan who will lend a new dimension to ‘Dance India Dance’ and drive the country towards creating a new dance movement!

Indiblogger and Dance India Dance (alongwith its three judges) are coming together to organise an evening of fun, frolic and blogging at The Oberoi, New Delhi on October the 23rd.

I would believe only in a God that knows how to Dance.
