There are four forms of classical dance in Bangladesh; Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Monipuri and Kathakali. All these classical forms of dance are rooted in the subcontinent for many years. Nowadays, dancers mainly originate from the urban middle-class. Bulbul Lalitkala Academy is the pioneer institution for teaching dance.
