There are several thousand if not millions of individual teachers, schools and large corporations involved in teaching different forms of dances today. Some are focused at teaching only a particular form of dance while others teach many different forms of dances. Till the late 1960s, it was mostly individual dance masters who were thought of as the perfect go-to people when it came to learning a particular form of dance, most of these masters were hereditary and taught only one form of dance generation after generation. Then things changed, with the rise of capitalism and celebrity culture, the standards of dance schools also raised while that exclusivity of hereditary dance teachers has been seeing a downfall ever since. The masters who did nothing but taught a particular form of dance generation after generation are now forced to do petty jobs while the teams and schools that are good at advertising and organizing are flourishing. Morris dance, Can-can, Laride, Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Tarantella, Boarischer, and most other national dances have been constantly seeing a downfall in popularity for decades after decades while Salsa, Ballet, Tap, Zumba and Hip-Hop’s popularity has been constantly rising.
