Bharatnatyam Fusion (Bfusion) | VGo Carnatic Trap

This dance fuses Bharatanatyam and hip hop dance styles.  Bharatanatyam is a a major genre of Indian classical dance that originated in the Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu and neighboring regions. The dancers explain, "Bfusion is our term for Bharatnatyam or Bollywood fusion, as we take inspiration from a mix of different styles and blend it with our Indian dance background. In this one, we took inspiration from Popping and Animation styles in Hip Hop." This is an excellent example of fusion dance and also illustrates the differences between unison and a variety of mirroring techniques very well.
