Art of Dancing Dance does not leave behind clearly identifiable physical artifacts such as stone tools, hunting implements or cave paintings. It is not possible to say when dance became part of human culture. Dance has certainly been an important part of ceremony, rituals, celebrations and entertainment since before the birth of the earliest human civilizations. Archeology delivers traces of dance from prehistoric times such as the 9,000 year old Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka paintings in India and Egyptian tomb paintings depicting dancing figures from circa 3300 BC. One of the earliest structured uses of dances may have been in the performance and in the telling of myths.

Most of the music that people heard in the Middle Ages was in church. Outside church only a few people read or played music.

In, an ancient Egyptian cemetery known as Beni Hasan, female dancers and acrobats tossing balls are depicted in hieroglyphs in the fifteenth of 150 tombs. Juggling records span the past 4,000 years, but only bits and pieces of its history were recorded leaving us without an accurate accounting until the fourth century A.D. to the present.

This Siva figure is portrayed as Nataraja, the Lord of Dance; it stands poised between “unrestrained power” and “perfect equilibrium”.

These song and dance sequences not only serve as means of entertainment but are also used to give out a message which either relates to the theme of the movie or a particular scene in which it is shot. As Tejaswinti Ganti mentions in her book, ‘Bollywood: a guidebook to popular Hindi cinema,’ she mentions, “To those unfamiliar with popular Hindi cinema, song sequences seem to be ruptures in continuity and verisimilitude. However, rather than being an extraneous feature, music and song in popular cinema define and propel plot development.”  Every song raises different themes and expresses emotions such as love, anger, sadness or excitement. Therefore, the highlight of this paper is to show the importance of songs and dances in Indian cinemas. Any possible emotion which can be expressed by a man can be identified in Indian music.
