Indian Dance Forms

India is a country of dance and song. Its traditions and cultures are interwined with music, festivities and dance. Indian Dance Forms are a combination of the traditional intermingled with folk and the classical forms of dance.

While dance in India originated in temples of kings, it has been passed on through generations. Classical dance forms such as Bharatnatyam have been revived and given greater impetus. The Indian Government recognises 11 forms of classical dance while folk dances are popular within the sub-regions across states such as at the Ramlila in Uttar Pradesh.
