With contemporary, typically, the song (including melodies, lyrics, beats, etc)and the dance moves are supposed to help you conveya 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...<div>
I have not seen this week performances yet though!
When i first saw good contemporary on tv (did) i was completely in awe. But now, its like - yawn! Actually indian dance forms are all about story telling. You could trace back the origins of most indian dance forms as an attempt to tell a story rather than simply dancing.
