What is Bollywood?

Bollywood dance comes from the heart of the Indian film industry -- the largest film industry in the world.
This dance form is influenced not only by the classical Indian traditions and folk dancing from all the various regions of the Indian subcontinent; it also assimilates dances from all across the world.
