The dancing in Bollywood films is primarily modelled on Indian dance: Classical dance styles, dances of historic northern Indian courtesans or folk dances. In modern films, Indian dance elements often blend with Western dance styles. Its usual to see Western pop and pure classical dance numbers side by side in the same film. The characters often perform with a troup of supporting dancers. If the characters dance and sing a pas-de-deux (a dance and ballet term, meaning "dance of two"), it is often staged in beautiful natural surroundings or architecturally grand settings. This staging is referred to as a "picturisation".
Carnatic music has been known as a spiritual and devotional art form, and has existed for several thousand years, predominantly in the south of india and travelled across the world from there. It was glorified in the era of the trinity (Thygaraja, Shyama Sastri and Dikshithar) who left us with a wealth of knowledge and musical compositions, what we practice till date as Carnatic music. Other noteworthy composers and gurus have shaped the art form throughout its history and exemplified its practice and essence for everyday learners. Carnatic music is known for it’s meditative benefits, as well as in medicinal and therepautic value. Each Raga elicits a particular emotion and mood, or is sung for a specific auspicious occasion (such as marriage, festivities) to invoke the presence and blessings of the divine.
