I found all of these videos on the YouTube site of Tripmonk0, who obviously had recorded a lot of dance from old British TV. (By the way, I seemed to recall posting the first dance, by Asha Parekh, sometime before, but I couldn’t find it in a search, and if I did post it, it’s been a while. The other videos are almost certainly here for the first time.)

P.S. This post might be considered somewhat along the trajectory of the prior one. However, I’ve been especially in a Kathak mood for the past few days, since I downloaded a 1961 soundtrack to some Kathak dances by Sitara Devi, found at Snap, Crackle & Pop. (That is to say, the soundtrack was found there. Unfortunately, no video of those dances could be found. But it’s nice listening to the music while you picture her dancing in your mind.)
