The filmi music and dances in Bollywood films are a synthesis of formal and folk Indian traditional music and dance traditions, in fusion with Middle Eastern techniques. The dances in older Hindi movies represented supposed dances of the common people, although they involved original choreography. Bollywood dances have evolved as a unique and energetic style.
Since they are group dances, they are often used as joyful exercise music.The style of dance has also highly influenced international artists and appears in songs such as Come & Get It (Selena Gomez song) and EDM hit Lean On.
The choreography of Bollywood dances takes inspiration from Indian folk dances, classical dances (like kathak) as well as disco and from earlier Hindi filmi dances.
