Tagore and Dance by Amita Dutt [Mookerjee]

Tagore established dance as a respectable branch of learning against a lot of opposition. He wrote songs for dance, presented dance and danced himself. He sent friends and students to various corners of India and the globe to learn dance movements, styles and choreography, and dancers presented themselves in Santiniketan. It is due to his efforts that dance became a respectable profession and is performed and taught throughout India today.
