Indian Dance is not what it was. The classical dances of the subcontinent have undergone fission, have been deconstructed and have become part of a contemporary dance idiom. Some of the most innovative work has taken place because of interaction with Western dancers or because it was conceived in a Western and/or global context. Thus the British experience-the work and contribution of Indian dance practitioners based in Britain and working primarily in a British/European context-have been very important for the new development of Indian dance.
