Wildly spirited and creatively unlimited, dancing is a versatile medium of expression. Within its varied techniques and forms, it holds the extraordinary ability to convey extreme contradictions like ecstasy and agony with equal fervour.
And so whether it is throwing one's arms in gay abandon or stomping feet in sync and attitude, a whole world of entertainment is communicated through the brilliant technique of dance.
Over the years, Bollywood's musically-inclined productivity has witnessed an ever-changing range of hip-shakers. From Kishore Kumar's freestyle romp, Jeetendra's Jumping Jack ways and Rishi Kapoor's charming jig to Amitabh Bachchan's stylised mannerisms, Mithun Chakraborty's disco-friendly strut and Anil Kapoor's tapori-flavoured frolic, silver screen has regaled in the masti, moves and magic of them all.
The ever-so-pliable Javed Jafferi and Prabhu Deva deserve more than a honarary mention for incorporating Western style, namely breakdancing, in addition to their own unique element to the choreography.
