Viral Dance Video Hybrid Bharatanatyam to Lil Wayne song on Twitter

New Delhi: A dance video posted by choreographer Usha Jey, which mixed Bharatanatyam and Hip-Hop, is going viral on social media. The video posted by Jey on Twitter and Instagram features three dancers, including Jey, to Lil Wayne’s song “Uproar,” where they mix graceful Bharatanatyam poses and freestyle Hip-Hop moves. The post is widely shared, with people watching the video on repeat.

Jey calls it ‘Hybrid Bharatham’. In a tweet, she said, “I call it #HybridBharatham and it’s my way of switching between Hip-Hop and Bharathanatyam, 2 dances I love, learn and respect. My goal is to keep the essence of every dance and create something that does justice to who I am.

The video opens with three dancers in traditional Bharatanatyam attire dancing to Lil Wayne’s Uproar, then switching between Bharatanatyam and Hip-Hop — so seamlessly it almost feels like a single dance form.
