India is a country of dance and song.
Indian traditions are intertwined with music, festivities and dance.
Dance to the beat of India
Tribal Dances – Exotic to the traditional. Tribal dances in India foster a sense of unity and display the rich cultural heritage and traditions.
Classical Dance Forms – Grace combines expression. My head automatically oscillated in slight swings, my feet found rhythm unknown to my mind and my smile widened almost involuntarily.
Indian Folks – A mix of culture, rhythm and tradition. If dance is euphoria, folk dance form is right in it.
… to the tune of the classical, folk and traditional
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.
