Is there no other dance form? Have these ppl heard about the numerous, numerous indian dance forms that are so distinct from each other. Even if they want to do non indian dance forms - is contemporary the only option? This is not a criticism of anyone in particular but a general observation across all dance shows on all channels. Ya ppl do a few other forms once in a while but mostly its overwhelmingly contemporary. And indian dance is rarer still. In the past 2-3 years, i have seem so much of contemporary that i think i am fit to judge it by now LOL . And i promise i will be better than kjo!

I think a lot of the choreographers might have been originally trained in contemp. Or maybe they find it easier to teach it to their partners? Either way, sometimes I do wish there are more forms but contemporary is one my favourite dance form, so I'm not complaining! People complain about too many lifts as well but I always find them pretty awesome.

I think with contemporary, it is perphaps easier to tell a story since the theme this week is family? With contemporary, typically, the song (including melodies, lyrics, beats, etc) and the dance moves are supposed to help you convey a story...They cant use like rumba or salsa as it would be difficult to narrate a family theme story in those dance forms?
And I love watching a good contemporary dance so I am not complaining!
I am sure there are many Indian dance forms that could have been used but I am too familiar with them to comment...
 
 
I have not seen this week performances yet though!

You know, i kind of dont like lifts too LOL . I find them way too gimmicky. And there is one lift i absolutely hate - where the man lifts the girl with one hand by gripping between her legs. Urghhh. I saw it first on some international show. I think salman did it in his last act, though it was a milder version. And another couple did it last week on indias dancing superstar. As a girl i find that completely horrid
