Semi Classical dance has its origins in Indian classical and folk dance, which when put together, is called Semi-Classical dance form. The steps and moves of semi-classical dance are not as complex or intricate as pure classical forms. However, the authenticity of the Indian dance form is preserved, and students are able to grasp these lighter semi-classical dances easily. This type of dance breaks the stylized structures and forms of the classical dance, and adopts a more contemporary style. All along the ethos of the basic dance remains intact.
