Is it time to hit the dance floor and start moving? Are you planning a rocking Bollywood theme party with friends? Then you’ve got to make sure you wear the right clothes that give you the freedom, comfort and the ease so you can go all out and give a jaw dropping performance!
Choosing a Costume That’s Right for You
If you’ve been rehearsing and dancing for a long time for a party or a special occasion, it’s important to ensure that you wear the jazziest yet the most comfortable costume to ensure you can give your best performance. A costume that fits the theme is equally important. For e.g., for a ballet performance, it’s inappropriate to wear clothing for Yogalates or a casual outfit for a hip-hop recital.
With its origins from the Middle Eastern part of the world, a typical belly dance performance involves rhythmic movements of the core and creating sensual body movements on exotic music beats. Since its place of origin, the dress used in this style of performing art too is also very eastern, with a fancy skirt and a short crop top. These dresses are nowhere near simple; they are fancy, flashy, and full of ornaments and accessories.
Hip-hop is the most popular type of street dance; it’s making raves amongst teenagers and young adults. Since hip-hop is very casual and street style, there’s not much that you have to spend on clothing and attire. All you need is a good sports bra, a pair of comfortable footwear i.e. sneakers, and a comfortable track suit – jeans or the like. Everyday comfortable clothing is what works best for a seamless hip-hop party performance.
Bollywood Bhangra comes from India and the costumes reflect the same. Performers wear vibrant, and flamboyant clothing that reflects the rich Punjabi culture. Women wear long kurta with baggy salwar that is tight on the ankles. They also wear chunni or dupatta that is wrapped around the neck. Men on the other hand wear lungi/chaadar around the waist and long kurtas. All these dresses and parts of the dresses are bright colored and look beautiful during a Bollywood Bhangra recital.
Kathak is a traditional Indian folk dance. With its origins rooting hundreds of years ago, a typical Kathak dress is also very eastern and Indian. Kathak danseurs wear chooridaar pajamas that are like tights, and wear a frock like long shirt called angarkha with a lot of flare. All the Kathak outfits are beautifully designed with attractive color combinations and stunning jewelry and accessories are also a vital part of the get-up.
