Learn Indian classical dance forms in Singapore


     There are a total of eight Indian classical dance forms which project the diversity and rich cultural heritage of India, and it is not just restricted within the border of India but is known and learnt worldwide.


The eight types include –Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kuchipudi, Odissi, Kathakali, Sattriya, Manipuri and Mohiniyattam.


      However, among all the Indian classical dance forms, Bharatnatyam and Kathak have established itself in Singapore in a more significant proportion because of its deep-rooted cultural ties. Not only the Indians, but also the local natives of Singapore  take classes for learning these Indian Dance forms. This might be because most of the Indians who reside in Singapore are South Indians. Nowadays, the young generation tends to link Indian dance to typical contemporary dance styles and is not really aware of the rich cultural heritage of the classical dance forms. Thus there is an urgent need for more exposure of Indian classical dance forms.


A list of the top Indian classical dance classes available in Singapore has been prepared to ease the process of choosing the right academy without wasting time.
