Folk Dance

Folk Dance

India is a country where cultural diversity is celebrated at every occasion. Every state has a different language, different culture and a different dance form which is very personal to it. It’s not like that no other state performs the folk dance of other ones. But, the unique folk dance is the identity of its respective state. We can see a great impact of westernized culture on today’s youth. But, even the lash of modernization couldn’t eliminate the importance of folk dance forms.

India is a country where you can find dance for every occasion, be it celebrations, thanksgiving, worship, everything. The list is very long but I am going to enlist five folk dance forms here. Save the rest for later.

 Jhumur nach


A very adorable dance form from Assam. Performers need to keep their best foot forward to perform this form of dance, I mean it requires a precise foot work. Dancers keep tune with Madal beats, a drum like instrument.

Karma or Munda

Munda dance form got its name from karma tree. We can proudly call it a nature loving art as it gets started with the plantation of trees. A circle is formed by men and women, holding each other’s waists. Starting slowly, the dance keeps gaining momentum till the end on the beats of dhol.
